Brewers vs Phillies: Live stream, start time, picks and predictions, how to watch Saturday
The Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies face off Saturday with the first pitch scheduled for 4:05 p.m. The game takes place at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and will only be available on local television or through an MLB.tv subscription. The Brewers will look to Adrian Houser, while Zack Wheeler will take the mound for the Phillies.
The Brewers rode a four-game winning streak Friday night with a 4-2 loss to the Phillies and went just 1-8 with runners in scoring position. Milwaukee received a string of strong performances from their starters, who allowed just 5 earned runs in the previous six games.
The Phillies scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning last night to take the lead and win their second straight game after a three-game losing skid. Bryce Harper had two hits in the win and is looking to extend his hitting streak to seven games on Saturday afternoon.

Choices and predictions
Moneyline choice: Phillies-145
You won’t get a ton of value with Philadelphia at that number, but there’s a good chance the Phillies will win the first two games of this series. Wheeler is coming off a rough start, allowing 7 earned runs in 3 innings of work in an 11-3 loss to the Miami Marlins. Still, he’s been one of baseball’s best pitchers the past two seasons and faces a Brewers offense that wasn’t that impressive early on.
Choice of player accessories: Christian Yelich U0.5 success (+125)
You get an incredibly good bet on Christian Yelich to not register a hit in this game. He’s played 13 games this season and gone hitless in six of them. Yelich hit a Grand Slam earlier this week and in the three games since, he’s had 1-for-12 at bats. Now he’s up against one of the best pitchers in the sport, so getting some added value is a great bet.
