MLB Saturday

80-56 +29,020

Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers
You know the Brew crew is showing strength at 8-2 for last 10 games. Their true color is the home blue reminiscent of 2011 Brewers which was the best home team in baseball at 57-24 this team has been playing pretty tough at home 38-29. Had a 9 game home winning streak from July 30th to Aug. 17th and went 5-2 in their recent road trip which included winning the Pittsburgh series 2-1. The Pirates have lost the first game of this series with Karstens getting lifted in the first. AJ Burnett getting the call for game 2 has strung 4 non quality games with the Pirates going 1-3. He should improve here, but Milwaukee bats have been hot I don't know if AJ can contain them. Marco Estrada for Milwaukee has back to back win and 3 straight wins for Milwaukee I'd look for him to decline a bit here and give up few runs. My expectation is for one or both of these pitchers to come out with a ND and both teams to put up some runs. Over 8 runs to be exact. 

Game Total OVER 8 at -110 for 1 unit(L)
