The Brewers are 6-1 in their last seven games versus a lefty starter and 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series. Milwaukee is 35-16 in their last 51 Saturday games and the over is 10-4-1 in their last 15 versus a lefty starter.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 20-8 in their last 28 home games and 6-25 in their last 31 with the total set at 6.5 or lower. Colorado is 18-44 in their last 62 versus a team with a winning record and the under is 7-3-1 in their last 11 in game three of a series.
PICK: I’m going to take the Rockies in this one. We should have a good starter battle on our hands regardless, though. Gomber has just one earned in his last three starts over a span of 19.0 innings. As for Houser, he’s given up four earned over his last four starts, spanning 21.0 innings. I like both guys to pitch well here for a (relatively) lower-scoring game, and Colorado eking out the win.
