The Milwaukee Brewers have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Brewers have split their last 8 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 54 hits and 22 RBI, while Rowdy Tellez and Andrew McCutchen have combined for 97 hits and 62 RBI. Adrian Houser gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 3.92 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Houser is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 3 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.

The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 1-8 in their last 9 overall. The Mets are 23-9 in their last 32 home games and 11-5 in their last 16 overall. The over is 4-1 in Brewers last 5 overall. The over is 13-5-1 in Mets last 19 overall. The Brewers are 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.
The New York Mets are a tough team to step in front of given their current form, and it’s probably even tougher to back the Brewers in their current form. However, we’re getting plus money with a consistent pitcher in Adrian Houser and the Brewers are too good to continue these struggles. Chris Bassitt is also off to a rough start in June, allowing 12 hits and 9 earned runs in his last 9.1 innings. The Brewers have had success recently as an underdog. Give me the plus money.
