San Francisco is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 18-6 in their last 24 games against the NL Central while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 Saturday games. Milwaukee is 0-4 in their last 4 games against the NL West and 5-2 in their last 7 home games while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 game three matchups.
I’m backing the Giants here. Give credit where it’s due to the Brewers, as they’re a solid team and Corbin Burnes is still the staff ace, but he’s been less effective at home this season and the Giants have been the far better team between the two in the last couple of weeks. Logan Webb had a rough start to the year but he’s picked it up over the last month and really is not someone I’m looking to step in front of right now. Give me the Giants here.
