Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets Prediction

Heading into Thursday’s National League matchup between Milwaukee and New York, the Mets are the slight favorite on the moneyline. Although Aaron Ashby is coming off two straight bad outings, he has the ability to lock down opposing lineups. On the other side, Tylor Megill lasted just 3 1/3 innings in his start vs the Angels. I like the Brewers to pick up the win.
