Shane’s Free Pick
This is going to be an easy victory for the Brewers. Burnes has been dominant this series and in his last start he gave up zero runs. Over his last three starts he has given up only four runs total. The Cardinals bats are going to have some major issues scoring here, and that is going to be the difference here as the Brewers are going to get the job done here. Back the Brewers -1.5 to cash.
