Minnesota Twins at Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s interleague matchup between Minnesota and Milwaukee, the Brewers are the heavy favorite on the moneyline. Even though last night’s matchup featured a lot of scoring, I expect Corbin Burnes to continue his strong season by shutting down the Twins. Look for the Brewers to cover the runline.
