Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be an easy victory for the Brewers. Miley has been lights out his last two starts and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The Rockies offense has had issues, and they are going to struggle to score even two or three runs total here. This is going to be an easy victory for Brewers. Back the Brewers -1.5.
