Milwaukee Brewers vs Pittsburgh Pirates Prediction

It would be lovely to know who the Brewers are throwing out there on the mound, but I’m not sure if it matters much. The Pirates have cooled off greatly over the last couple of weeks, and the offense has been terrible during this losing stretch. Bailey Falter has been sharp as of late, allowing just 3 runs in his last 16 innings while striking out 8. I still have little confidence in the Pirates given this losing stretch they’ve experienced. The Brewers have been the better team up to this point, regardless of the pitching matchup.

Give me the Brewers and the better price.
