The Milwaukee Brewers also need a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Brewers have allowed nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have an ERA of 4.51 and have lost six of their last eight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jonathan Villar leads Milwaukee with 64 hits, Jonathan Lucroy has 28 RBI and Chris Carter has 16 home runs. Junior Guerra takes the hill, and he’s 3-1 with a 3.61 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. This will be Guerra’s first career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 12-2 in their last 14 Friday games and 1-4 in Harveys last 5 starts. The Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 6-1 in Guerras last 7 starts. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Milwaukee.
Harvey has been hit or miss all season, which makes him very tough to trust. Meanwhile, the Brewers are hitting the baseball well right now and have actually been putting wins on the board. I'll side with the home team and plus money with Harvey beeing so inconsistent.
