Tampa Bay Rays vs Milwaukee Brewers prediction

The Tampa Bay Rays are obviously better than what they've shown over the last week or so, but losses in 6 of their last 7 games is just that. Also, there's no excuse to get swept by the White Sox, easily the worst team in baseball. The Milwaukee Brewers continue to play well, and Bryse Wilson seems to be getting more and more comfortable in a starting role, even if it's limited innings. Until the Rays can shake this stink off of them, I'm not excited to get behind them. At home, I'll take my chances with the Brewers and the pick em price.
