The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-0 in Nelsons last 4 starts. The Indians are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The Brewers are 8-1 in the last 9 meetings.
We have two teams that have been hard to predict but are having little trouble putting runs on the board, especially the Brewers. When you add the fact both pitchers have been rocked from time to time this season, I like the over in this spot.
