Im taking the Brew Crew and plus money for the second consecutive days. Milwaukee shook off whatever three-game funk it had in a pair of losses at Chicago and the opener of its series at Philadelphia to get back to its winning ways. The Brewers have won 10 of 13 after a middling start, and with Yelich back in form, the hedge is they finally give Chacin a margin of error to let him pitch effectively. Chacins track record against NL East opponents and series openers also give confidence in the Brewers pushing their winning streak to four games.50%

Milwaukee Brewers (58% consensus). Christian Yelich has inflicted most of his damage on opposing pitchers at home this season, but the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder seeks to build off a big road performance entering Fridays series opener at the Atlanta Braves. The reigning National League MVP homered twice in Thursdays 11-3 victory at Philadelphia, giving him a major league-leading 18 with only three of them coming on the road in 2019... http://bit.ly/2uBU5tM

Fansided: Atlanta Braves Series Preview: Another tough test with Brewers coming to town
Including the Atlanta Braves last three opponents (Dodgers, Diamondbacks, and Cardinals) and their next one in the Brewers, the combined records of those four teams is 103-76 coming into Friday's action.
This weekend will be another big challenge for the Braves as they could be facing a team they'll be battling over a Wild Card spot with.
They've really helped out the Atlanta Braves this year as the Brewers are 11-2 against the NL East so far this season. Hopefully they don't continue that trend against the Braves this weekend.Game 1 - Jhoulys Chacin vs Max Fried
After a dominating start to the season, Max Fried has cooled off a good bit in his last two starts giving up 7 earned runs in just 6 innings pitched.
Talking Chop: If it ain't broke... Braves roll onwards with same lineup for Brew Crew opener
Hey, look, it's the same lineup that the Braves have used since Austin Riley's debut two games ago:
Not much more to say about this arrangement at this point.
With Travis Shaw hitting the IL and the call-up of Keston Hiura, this is the first time the Brewers have deployed this particular squad. The main difference between this lineup and what you might normally see is Mike Moustakas grabbing an off day against a southpaw, and Hernan Perez starting in his place.
Despite the fact that Max Fried made a start against the Brewers last year, there's actually not a lot of history between him and most of Milwaukee's roster.
Talking Chop: Braves ride high into weekend showdown with Brewers
An era of good feelings is currently upon the Braves for this mid-May weekend series: the Braves are two games above .500 for the first time since April 16, their playoff odds are at their highest point since April 11, and they've won back-to-back series for the first time since reeling off three straight in their second, third, and fourth series of the year. Those series wins came against the upstart Diamondbacks and contender Cardinals, too, so they haven't exactly been cheapies. This upcoming series doesn't look like a cheapie either, however, as the Brewers come to town on a roll of their own.
Brew Crew Ball: Series Preview: Milwaukee Brewers @ Atlanta Braves
Maybe it's because after a month of playing division rivals and the Los Angeles Dodgers, everything else seems easy. Maybe it's because they're just hot right now. But whatever the reason, the Brewers have owned the NL East so far this season.
The Brewers are now 11-2 against teams from the East after a dominating series in Philadelphia -- 3-1 against the Phillies, 5-1 against the New York Mets, and 3-0 against the Washington Nationals. The only team (not counting the Marlins, because let's be honest about what would likely happen) they've yet to play in that division are the Atlanta Braves, and that changes this weekend.
