Why you should back the Brewers

Milwaukee is expected to send right-hander Jakob Junis to the mound. The veteran is in his eighth year at the MLB level. In 40 games, including four starts for the San Francisco Giants last season, he went 4-3 with a 3.87 ERA. In 86 innings, he allowed 90 hits, 37 earned runs and 21 walks, while striking out 96. In 10 career games against the Twins, including nine starts, he has a 1-2 record and 5.15 ERA. In 43.2 innings, he has allowed 25 earned runs and 18 walks, while striking out 44.

Former National League MVP Christian Yelich is back to his old form early this season, and is tied for the team lead with a .455 average. He has homered and driven in two runs with two walks and two stolen bases. He had three hits, including a home run, in the season-opening 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday. He has had some success against Minnesota. In 27 career games against the Twins, he is hitting .283 with nine doubles, three homers and 16 RBI. See which team to pick here
