Milwaukee is 6-16 against the spread in their last 22 games, 2-6 as a favorite, and 5-1 in Fiers’ last ix starts. Miami is 4-2 in their last six games, 4-1 against a right-handed starter, and 1-5 in Eovaldi’s last six road starts. Miami is 8-20 in the last 28 meetings of these two.
The total is set at 8.5 but that looks to be on the high side so my free pick is the under. My stronger pick is on the wining side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
