Milwaukee (34-29) lost nine of its last 10 games heading into the second game of this series with the Mets on Wednesday night.

New York (41-22) won three of its last four games and will go into the day with the best record in the National League. Peterson made eight appearances with six starts this season with a 3.00 ERA.

Brewers vs. Mets
Odds, picks & predictions
Run line: Brewers -1.5 (+130)
Run total: 7.5
Moneyline odds: Brewers -135, Mets +115
Moneyline pick: Mets +115
Even with Burnes on the mound, it’s tough to be too confident in taking the Brewers with a high price in this matchup. The Mets have a much better offense, and Milwaukee is having all sort of issues in a major slump including Burnes, coming off consecutive poor outings.
Player prop pick: Corbin Burnes Under 6.5 strikeouts (+100)
Burnes failed to reach 5 innings in two starts in a row, and he faces a Mets offense that makes plenty of contact. New York averages the fifth-fewest K’s per game (7.5), so let’s go with the under, getting even odds.
