I was about to cash another one, but it fell apart in the eighth. Today we’re heading to Milwaukee for what should be a good game between the Blue jays and Brewers. The Brewers finally got things turned around after a terrible slump and are coming into this one after a sweep of the Reds and a split series with the Cardinals. The Jays are coming off a day of rest and have lost back-to-back series to the Yankees and White Sox. Who has the edge to start this one off? Let’s break it down and find out.

Blue Jays:
Things have been a little tough lately for the jays. Dropping back-to-back series against teams you’ll almost certainly see and have to beat to win it all is never a good idea, but those games are still a long way away. In the four losses, the Blue jays’ pitching got absolutely destroyed. In that four-game span, they allowed 31 runs. The lone bright spot, if you want to call it that, was Manoah’s start. He takes the hill today having only allowed four runs in his start against the Bronx Bombers. That marked his worst outing of the year. His road ERA of 1.80 jumps off the page as it’s even lower than his overall ERA of 2. He will look to control an up and down Brewers lineup.

The Brewers look to build off their win at home as they have struggled at home this month, currently sitting at 3-8. Scoring runs has been an issue for this club, as they have scored three or fewer runs in nine of their 21 games played so far this month. Things won’t be any easier for them today facing Manoah. The Brewers send Houser to the mound, who has been hit hard in his last three starts, but the number of runs he’s given up has decreased by one in each. The Brewers are 2-3 in his last five starts. To Houser’s credit, in two of those losses the Brewers were shut out. 

Blue Jays vs Brewers pick: Blue Jays ML
The price is too good to pass on a guy like Manoah pitching and a lineup that can get hot at any moment against the inconsistency of the Brewers. Take the Jays ML.
