NY Mets are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games when playing on the road against Milwaukee.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Milwaukee's last 7 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 5 games against NY Mets.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 5 games at home.
The Brewers couldn't do much against an outstanding performance from Scherzer in the first game of the series. For this game they'll send Aaron Ashby who hasn't pitched in 30 days and was pounded in his last start allowing 6 runs in 5 innings. The Mets will send Carlos Carrasco to the mound who has been pretty solid in his last 2 starts allowing only 1 run in each game. Every game is key for both teams right now, the Mets clinched a playoff spot but are still in the fight for the NL East crown so expect them to fight with all again. With the over cashing big time for these teams I think that's the play. Take the over.
