Stephen Nover's 15-Dime Total of the Week
Milwaukee vs. Philadelphia,
07/02/2015 18:35 EDT,
Score: 8 - 7
Total: +103/+8 Over
I won an easy totals winner on Wednesday with these teams over 8 and I'm coming back on the same play today.
The Brewers are swinging hot bats scoring 20 runs and banging out 43 hits during the first three games of this series. They should do plenty of damage against brittle Chad Billingsley, who has been out since May 15. Billingsley had a 5.06 ERA in three Triple A rehab appearances. Billingsley missed all of last season and much of 2013 with elbow injuries.
Brewers starter Matt Garza is having a down season with a 5.52 ERA and facing an underrated Phillies offense in a hitter's park. Garza's strikeout rate has declined five straight seasons now and he's not making up for it with his command.
