Milwaukee Brewers vs Detroit Tigers Prediction 

Detroit comes into this matchup trying to avoid the series sweep, but their pitching staff has had a rough time over the last three games. The Tigers will look to Tarik Skubal to turn things around, as he has been one of the best pitchers in the MLB this year. Milwaukee is 20-16 on the road and they are a very solid baseball team. The Brewers are going with Bryse Wilson, who has been pretty good this year, but has struggled in his last two starts. I know Skubal has been lights out for Detroit this season, but we can’t pass up this value with the Brewers. My Milwaukee Brewers vs Detroit Tigers prediction is for Milwaukee to get the win.
