1 unit on Milwaukee +144 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.44) RESULT: WIN
The Pittsburgh Pirates are going to be in the playoffs, and now all they have to do is get their rotation in order, but they have a bigger worry. Francisco Liriano was sailing along to a great season, but over his last six starts, things have fallen apart. Liriano has made it through just 33 innings in the six starts, has allowed 40 hits, while pitching to a woeful 5.45 ERA. Meanwhile, Milwaukee starter Taylor Jungmann has been the dominating pitcher. Jungmann is 8-5 with a 2.48 ERA on the season, and has out-pitched Liriano. Jungmann has already worked a seven inning gem vs. Pittsburgh this season, working seven innings, allowing three hits, and a single run. The Pirates are now 3-10 behind Liriano in his last 13 starts within the division, and Milwaukee has taken five of their last six at home. Play on Milwaukee.
