Milwaukee Brewers vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

I’m on the Royals here. I get the allure of plus money with the Brewers, who have been one of the best road teams in the league to this point, but they’ve really had issues against left-handed pitching, and I don’t see that changing against Ragans, who has been one of the more effective starters the Royals have had this season. I’m just not 100% sold on Bryse Wilson in a spot in this Brewers rotation, and think that Kansas City has a lot of value in this spot so give me the Royals here.
