For the second day in a row, a bullpen decided to blow the game. The Reds had a three-run lead going into the bottom of the eighth and decided to give up four runs. Today is the last day of the week to bankrupt your bookie and we have a couple picks for you all.
Atlanta Braves vs Milwaukee Brewers: Brewers -130 and Under 9
The Braves are looking to split this four-game series vs the Brewers. This pitching matchup consists of Sean Newcomb vs Junior Guerra. The month of July is where we see the weather heat up and see what players can handle the heat. Newcomb with starts in July is 0-4 with an 8.54 ERA, while Guerra has a 2.90 ERA in the month of July during his career. The Brewers do not give Guerra much run support when he pitches, they average 2.90 runs when he’s on the mound. This is a day game and Newcomb has struggled this year, he owns a 4.06 ERA. I think Newcomb will struggle today and the Brewers will take advantage of it. Expect the Brewers to win this and the Braves offense to be shut down by Guerra. Take the Brewers and the under.
Record to Date: 10-8
