The over is 4-1 in Brewers last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Indians last 5 overall. The Brewers are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Cleveland.
The Milwaukee Brewers just no hit the Indians last night and Lauer is another one of those red hot Brewers pitchers, as he’s allowed just one run in his last 14 innings. Allen has struggled all season long, and he’s given up seven earned runs and 13 hits in his last 12 innings. The Brewers are the only option here, and I’ll take the RL for max betting value.
