Pick: Brewers ML (-110)
This game takes us to the Midwest in Milwaukee as these two first place teams will play the first game of the series here on Tuesday evening. Both Minnesota and Milwaukee lead their respective leagues, Central division and weirdly enough for both of the Central division in the American, and National League have been the two worst divisions in all of baseball this season. Regardless of that statistic, both of them will be looking to pick up a victory and extend their lead over Cleveland and Cincinnati here in this one.
Minnesota comes into this game sitting in the first place of the American League Central division. However, it might be fair to say that the only reason they are in first place right now, is because the Cleveland Guardians cannot get out of their own way, and they have cost themselves several games along the way this season. However, I’m sure no fan of the Minnesota Twins is complaining right now, and they will be looking to extend their lead with a series opening victory here on Tuesday night.
Bailey Ober gets the baseball for the opening game of the series in Milwaukee and he will be looking to deliver yet. Another quality performance like he has done all season long to help Minnesota get a much-needed victory in this game. The Minnesota Twins come into this game with a record of 65-60 through their first 125 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season. Despite losing five out of their last 10 games on the year, they have managed to build their division lead up to six whole games over Cleveland heading into the week. They will be looking to further extend their lead with another quality victory here in this game as well as extend their one game winning streak to two games.

It has been a solid season for the Milwaukee Brewers, but they are in somewhat of a similar situation as Minnesota. That is because the rest of their division has been so awful up until this point of the year that they have basically been able to coast by on somewhat average performances and lead the division and have themselves set up for a playoff spot. They have been heating up as of late, so has the rest of the teams in the division, as Chicago and Cincinnati are now hot on their heels after slow starts to the year. Milwaukee comes into this opening game of this series with a record of 68-57 through their first 125 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.
Milwaukee currently holds a two and game lead over the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central division standings. Milwaukee has been one of the hotter teams in baseball over the last week and a half as they have picked up seven victories in their last 10 games on the season. They also come into the opening game of the series on a three game winning streak and they will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games with another victory here on Tuesday night. Wade Miley gets the baseball for Milwaukee here on Tuesday, and in my opinion, that gives Milwaukee the edge of the starting pitching matchup. When you factor in Milwaukee playing at home where they have been a very tough team to beat this season. It is easy to see why they are favorites in this game over Minnesota.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Milwaukee is 33-27 at home
- Minnesota is 29-34 on the road
- Milwaukee is 24-17 against the American League
I have to give the edge of the Milwaukee Brewers because Wade Miley is taking them out for them, and he has been a hard guy to beat this season. I expect him to have a quality performance in this game and help pitch Milwaukee to a much-needed victory in the opening game of the series against Minnesota here on Tuesday night at home.
