Milwaukee are 15-4 SU in their last 19 games against Arizona.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 5 games when playing on the road against Arizona.
Arizona are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Arizona's last 5 games against Milwaukee.
The Dbacks have been playing great offense and have averaged 6.8 runs per game in their last 10 games. For this game they'll send Zach Davies to the mound who has been pretty solid lately allowing 2 runs or less in each of his last 3 starts. Eric Lauer will start for the Brewers who has been solid this season and has dominated the Dbacks in his career. This should be another low scoring game as both starters have dominated the opponent. Take the under.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
