Money Line: -113 Milwaukee
This is an 8* play on the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Brewers finished first in the Cactus League this spring, and they come into their home opener off a three game sweep of the Padres in San Diego. I like Milwaukee as just a small favorite in their home opener.
Zack Davies will toe the slab for the Brewers, and he finished last season strong. After getting hit hard before the All Star break, he was 7-5 with a 2.87 ERA in his final 15 starts. He has solid numbers pitching in the afternoon, going 13-6 with a 3.52 ERA in 25 starts since 2015.
The Cardinals hand the ball to Miles Mikolas, who hasn't pitched in the majors since 2014. He was 1-2 with a 4.76 ERA in six appearances this spring.
The Brewers are 8-3 in their last 11 versus St. Louis.
