Score: 3 - 6
Money Line: -144 Milwaukee
5* MLB *BEST BET* on Brewers -147
I'm banking on one of the best pitchers in baseball, Zack Greinke, to bounce back in a big way after one of his worst performances of the season.
Greinke gave up five earned runs over six innings in his last outing against the Miami Marlins, but make no mistake about it, he is still one of the dominant arms in the entire league.
Zack enters the game with a 3.08 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 9-2 record. Even accounting for him getting roughed up his last time out, he still has a 3.00 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in his last three appearances.
To top it off, Greinke gets to face some of the coldest bats in baseball. The Houston Astros have now lost NINE games in a row and have averaged just two runs per game in those contest, while barely hitting over the Mendoza line as a team. This one is a no-brainer, back Greinke and the Brewers with confidence.
