Brewers extend win streak
Thanks to a 5-2 victory at Kansas City on Tuesday, Milwaukee has now won seven straight. During the win streak they have allowed a total of 12 runs. Milwaukee is now 15-9 on the season and 7-3 on the road. They are putting up 4.12 runs per game this season while allowing 3.79 per contest.
Jhoulys Chacin gets the start for Milwaukee tonight. He is making his sixth start of 2018. Chacin has just a 1-1 record with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. Over 23.2 innings of work, he has 13 walks with 16 strikeouts.
Royals a mess at home
The Royals are now 5-16 overall and 1-8 at home after their latest loss at home. They are putting up just 3.89 runs at home while allowing 5.78 per game. Overall, they average 3.33 runs per game while allowing 5.57 per contest.
Jason Hammel is starting tonight for the Royals. Hammel has started four times this year and is 0-1 with a 3.20 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. Over 25.1 innings of work. Hammel has 16 strikeouts with seven walks. KC has produced just 8 total runs over his four starts.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won five straight over a right-handed starter and they are 16-6 in their last 22 road games. However, their win last night snapped a five-game losing streak in interleague play.
The Royals are 1-11 in their last 12 games against a right-handed starter. They are also 2-8 in their last 10 games following a loss and 0-5 in their last five against NL Central opponents.
The Brewers are rolling right now and the Royals definitely are not. KC doesn’t have any type of home-field advantage. Their pitching is actually worse at home. I think the Brewers should be able to continue to beat up the KC pitching and add to their win streak.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -130
