Padres vs. Brewers Prediction

I’m going to go back to the Brewers here. I just think it’s where the value is and while Cease is a solid addition to the Padres’ rotation, I still think the Brewers have the better team here and have the better bullpen once the starters leave. I think Miley goes a bit deeper in this game and does enough to get the Brewers the win at a nice plus price.

Chris’s Pick Milwaukee +115
