9 Under +100/ Over -110

Brewers' pitcher Matt Garza has pitched well recently with 5 of his last 6 starts being of the quality variety including two of his last 3 on the road. On the season his numbers as a whole are poor on the road with a 1.62 WHIP and a 6.21 ERA. He has fared well against the Diamondbacks in his team getting the W in 4 of his 5 starts all of which were QS.
Arizona starter Wade Miley has been mediocre for the most past this season with a 3-6 won loss record and a 4.71 earned run average. At home he has been a disaster with a 1-5 WL mark and 5.69 ERA. He won both of his outings last season against the Brew Crew allowing a combined 4 runs in 14 innings.
Milwaukee is one of the better hitting clubs with top 10 MLB rankings in batting average and slugging percentage. With those numbers runs haven't been a problem with 4.39 per game and they have been super consistent scoring as of late putting up 4 plus runs per game in 13 of their 16.
Arizona on the season has some surprising numbers ranked 5th in slugging percentage and home runs and a solid 6th in batting average in the NL. Scoring hasn't been a problem for the Diamondbacks or their opponents in recent games with 6 consecutive games going over the total line.
Under umpire Alfonso Marquez who is 0-3 to the over this season is behind the plate which is a negative, but the offensive numbers and the trend to the over have me making the investment.
