The New York Yankees and the Milwaukee Brewers meet Sunday in MLB action from American Family Field. Here’s a Milwaukee Brewers vs New York Yankees prediction. This will be the final installment in a three-game series. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for the game.

New York Yankees Betting Preview

The Yankees had a four-game series versus the Oakland Athletics this week. New York bagged wins 7-3 Wednesday and 4-3 Tuesday but otherwise lost the remaining pair for a split. After a 7-6 loss to the Brewers on Friday, in game two New York took a blowout win 15-3 on 19 team hits. Starting pitcher Carlos Rodon lasted 6.1 innings with one earned on two hits and a walk.

As starting pitcher for the finale, the Yankees will send out Marcus Stroman. This year over his five starts Stroman is 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA and 28 Ks in 27.2 innings. Stroman is 79-77 with a 3.64 ERA in 236 career games (228 starts).

Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview

Over on the Brewers’ side, they took on the Pittsburgh Pirates in their early-week series. Milwaukee also won two of four, taking victories 3-2 and 7-5 in the final pair. In the Saturday game two versus New York, the Brewers gave up four runs in both the sixth and ninth innings. Joe Ross left after 5.0 innings, six earned, eight hits and three walks.

It’ll be Tobias Myers in the starting pitcher slot for the Brewers on Sunday. This year Myers has just one start (the first of his career), taking a loss with one earned on four hits and one walk in 5.0 innings total.

Yankees vs Brewers Injury Notes

Yankees CF Jasson Dominguez (elbow) increased his throwing distance to 135 feet this week. Dominguez is on the 60-day IL.

Brewers SP Wade Miley was diagnosed with a torn UCL in his left elbow on Friday. He will undergo Tommy John surgery.

Milwaukee Brewers Team Facts

  • The Brewers have won each of their last nine day games following a home loss.
  • The Brewers have failed to cover the run line in each of their last five games following a loss.
  • The Brewers have lost the first inning in each of their last three games.
  • The ‘Inning 1 OVER 0.5 runs’ market has hit in each of the Brewers’ last six home games against AL East opponents.

New York Yankees Team Facts

  • The Yankees have lost each of their last eight day games against National League opponents following a win.
  • The Yankees have failed to cover the run line in each of their last eight day games against National League opponents following a win.

  • The ‘Inning 1 OVER 0.5 runs’ market has hit in each of the Yankees’ last three games at American Family Field.

Milwaukee Brewers vs New York Yankees Prediction

I’ll stay with New York. The Brewers should have a few scoring opportunities against Stroman though, so this one may be close. Stroman has given up nine earned runs on 17 hits and seven walks combined over his last three starts, totaling 15.2 innings. As for Myers, it’ll be interesting to see what he can do in his second outing following the tough-luck loss to the Pirates on April 23.

On Saturday in game two, the Yankees had a stellar offensive outing. Alex Verdugo posted three hits, two runs, a homer and four RBI, while Gleyber Torres had three hits with three RBI. I like New York to keep rolling on Sunday.
