Phillies Brewers Prediction Best Bets

Phillies vs Brewers Best Bets

I think the Brewers complete this sweep here. They’ve won the last two nights by a score of 7-5 each game, and they took 2 out of 3 from the Phillies in Philadelphia after the All Star Break.

I have some player props that I will be targeting as well, but in a pick ‘em game at home, I will gladly take the Brewers at this price.

Before going 2-2 their L4 contests, Milwaukee won 11 games straight. They are building momentum at the right time and will be very difficult to maintain down the stretch.

The Pick: Brewers ML (-109) Bovada

Player Props

William Contreras over 1.5 Bases (+135) Bovada

Phillies Brewers Prediction Best Bets

Contreras goes over this number in 46% of games overall but 50% at home.

He also smashes against the Phillies. He’s cleared this line in 3/5 against Philly this year, plus he has 11 total bases in those games.

Contreras has 3 doubles against the Phillies this year, and has 8 hits in 4 games against them.

He bats .429 against Ranger Suárez with 4 singles, 2 home runs and 3 RBIs.

Contreras has a hit in 13 straight games, and has cleared 2+ bases in 7 of his L10 at home and four straight at home.

I think he keeps up this batting tonight.

Bryce Harper over 1.5 Bases (+135) Bovada

Phillies Brewers Prediction Best Bets

I’ll make this one quick.

Bryce Harper has gone 0-4 the past two nights. But he rips Wade Miley.

In his career, Harper bats .462 against him with 5 singles and a double.

He’s cleared 2+ Bases in 7 of his L10 games, yet he hasn’t done so against Milwaukee.

What better day to finally clear this line against the Brewers than in their season finale?
