Milwaukee Brewers vs Miami Marlins Prediction

I’m on the Brewers here. Milwaukee took one on the chin in a disappointing showing in Monday’s opener, but that was just one game, and I think it was more of a clunker more than anything else. The Miami Marlins have had real struggles against lefties this season, and Robert Gasser has been every bit as good as advertised up to this point in his short major league tenure. The Brewers have been crushing lefties over the last couple of weeks, and one good outing isn’t going to suddenly make me forget about all of the issues that Trevor Rogers has had this season. I think the Brewers come to play here and as such, I’ll back them on the ML here.
