Preview

The San Francisco Giants and the Milwaukee Brewers will meet again to play the 2nd game of the series at the American Family Field. The Brewers won their last series against the Padres and the Giants swept the Phillies but are 3-10 vs Brewers this season and haven't beat them in L.A.

 

Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers get here with a 69-62 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. They're averaging 4.57 runs while allowing 4.1 runs per game. They're batting for .236 AVG, 589 runs scored in 1021 hits and 181 home runs, ranking #8 in offense in the league behind the Toronto Blue Jays. Rowdy Tellez leads the team with 27 home runs and 75 RBI while Christian Yelich is batting for a .264 AVG.

Defensively they are allowing 4.29 runs per game and ranking #17 in the league. Corbin Burnes leads the pitching staff with a 3.01 ERA, 195 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Brewers.

Probable Pitcher:  Gio Gonzalez (8-11, 4.40 ERA)

Gonzalez will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Brewers. Gonzalez hasn't pitched more than 2 innings this season so expect a bullpen game for the Giants. He has a 1-2 record with an ERA of 6.10 and 30 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Giants in his career.

San Francisco Giants

The Giants get here with a 64-68 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.47 runs per game and they're batting for .233 AVG, 591 runs scored in 1028 hits and 146 home runs, ranking #12 in offense in the league behind the Houston Astros. Joc Pederson leads the team with 21 home runs and 61 RBI. Thairo Estrada is batting for an average of .263.

Defensively they are allowing 4.41 runs per game and rank #18 in the league. Carlos Rodon leads the pitching staff with a 2.89 ERA, 201 strikeouts and 12 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:  Chris Stratton (11-8, 2.89 ERA)

Stratton will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Giants. Stratton took the loss Tuesday versus the Padres, allowing just one unearned run on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 5.2 innings. He  has a 1-3 record with an ERA of 4.20 and 32 strikeouts in 8 appearances versus the Brewers in his career.

 

BETTING TRENDS

San Francisco are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games against LA Brewers.

San Francisco are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games on the road.

San Francisco are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against LA Brewers.

LA Brewers are 11-5 SU in their last 16 games.

LA Brewers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Brewers continue to stay hot scoring 21 runs in the last 2 games and have dominated the Giants at home this season. For this game Gonzalez will take the mound who has been solid this season and the Brewers have won in 8 of his 10 starts this season including the 8-2 victory vs Giants. Stratton will start for the Giants so looks like they'll go with the bullpen again so I guess the under is the best play again.

PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
