Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers will visit the San Diego Padres to play a 3-game series at thePetco Park. The Brewers won their last series against the Nationals while the Padres swept the Giants.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers get here with a 26-15 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. They're are averaging 4.78 runs while allowing 2.16 runs per game. Rowdy Tellez leads the team with 9 home runs and 32 RBI while Hunter Renfroe is batting for a .268 AVG.

Brandon Woodruff leads the piching staff with a 4.76 ERA, 49 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Brewers.

Probable Pitcher: 

Adrian Houser (3-4, 3.22 ERA) will start for the Brewers in the 1st game of the series. The right-hander has been somewhat inconsistent early in 2022, posting a 3.22 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 36.1 innings spanning seven starts.

San Diego Padres

The Padres get here with a 27-14 record and have won 4 straight games. The team is averaging 4.38 runs per game with a .233 at bat while allowing 3.88 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 8 home runs and 27 RBI and a batting average of .374.

Musgrove leads the pitching staff with a 1.90 ERA, 51 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Padres.

Probable Pitcher:

Nick Martinez (2-2, 3.89 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Martinez struck out six in four scoreless innings as a long reliever Wednesday against the Phillies after starting in his first six appearances this season. However, he'll reclaim a starting role in Monday's series opener after Mike Clevinger (triceps) was placed on the 15-day injured list.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 12 of Milwaukee's last 18 games.

Milwaukee are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

San Diego are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of San Diego's last 11 games against Milwaukee.

Prediction

These are two of the top offenses in the league and even with the under having cashed in 8 of the last 11 head to head games this game will have many runs. Houser has been inconsistent this season same as Martinez. With both teams averaging over 4 runs per game I think this game will go over the total.

PICK: Over 8 (-110)
