Miami is 23-8 in their last 31 home games, 8-3 in game two of a series, and 1-6 in Turner’s last seven home starts. Milwaukee is 3-5 in their last eight games, 1-4 in game two of a series, and 1-4 in Peralta’s last five starts. Milwaukee is 10-3 in their last 13 games in Miami.
The total is set at eight and after Friday’s game I expect the runs to keep on coming and I like the over. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
