Milwaukee on a role
The Brewers are on a big hot streak right now, winning their last six games. That includes a four-game sweep of the Marlins last weekend. Milwaukee is now 14-9 on the season and 6-3 on the road. They are putting up 4.09 runs per game this season while allowing 3.87 per contest.
Zach Davies gets the start for Milwaukee tonight. He is 1-2 through four starts this season. Davies has a 4.84 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP. Over 22.1 innings of work, he has 20 strikeouts with seven walks.
Kansas City salvages split
The Royals are coming off a four-game split with the Tigers in Detroit. They have not strung together back-to-back wins this season. The Royals are 5-15 on the season and 1-7 at home. KC is averaging just 3.40 runs per game while allowing 5.60 per contest.
Ian Kennedy is starting tonight for the Royals. He is 1-2 through four starts. Over 23 innings of work, Kennedy has 22 strikeouts with seven walks, a 1.30 WHIP and a 2.35 ERA.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won 15 of their last 21 road games, but they are 0-5 in their last five against AL Central opponents. They are also just 2-5 in Davies’ last seven starts.
The Royals are just 4-9 in their last 13 interleague games and 1-6 in their last seven series openers. They are 1-4 in Kennedy’s last five home starts.
Milwaukee has momentum going for it and the Brewers have been beating up on some bad teams as of late. KC would qualify as another bad team. The Royals can’t find consistent hitting or pitching. While Kennedy has looked good, he hasn’t gotten support from his hitting. I think the Brewers will find a way to win again tonight.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -140
