Prediction

Two elite pitchers will meet in the first game of this series between the Giants and the Brewers. The Brewers have been great on the road lately as they have won8 of their last 11 games away and are 4-1 in the last 5 playing in San Francisco. They'll send their ace Corbin Burnes who has been outstanding and has allowed only 1 runs in his last 13 innings pitched. He already faced the Giants earlier this season and held them to zero runs across 6.2 innings. Carlos Rodon will start for the Giants and he's coming from pitching a complete game against the Padres where he allowed only 1 run and struck oout 12. Expect a great pitching duel and both offenses to struggle, take the under.

PICK: Under 6.5 (-110)
