Brewers -120 vs Padres (8)

On face value, this seems to be a steal for the visitors. Milwaukee is 8-2 since falling apart against the Cubs and the Prince Fielder-Manny Parra dugout skirmish. Plus, the Brew Crew arrives in San Diego with its best record (68-51) since 1992. Meanwhile, San Diego is at the bottom of the NL West at 46-72. Even better for the visitors is seeing Cha Seung Baek. Baek has had no success at San Diego, going 0-5 with a 6.96 ERA. Contrast that to the road, where he is 4-0 with a 2.81 ERA.

Milwaukee starter Jeff Suppan is 4-3 lifetime against San Diego and 7-7 overall for the season. Suppan is the weak link on the staff, but that brings the price down. Milwaukee slugger Ryan Braun (.300, 30 HR, 84 RBI) is day to day with a rib cage injury. Even so, Prince and the Brewers are hot. BREWERS.
