Brewers win series opener
The Brewers have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games following a 5-2 win at Colorado on Thursday night. The Brewers are 22-16 overall and 12-7 on the road. Milwaukee is averaging just 3.74 runs per game this season while allowing 3.74 per contest as well.
Brandon Woodruff gets the start for the Brewers today. He hasn’t been starting much this season, appearing in just five games and pitching a total of 9.1 innings. He has a 3.86 ERA this year with a 1.29 WHIP. He also has recorded 10 strikeouts with two walks.
Rockies’ win streak ends
The Rockies were coming off a 6-game win streak recently, but have now lost back-to-back games following Thursday’s loss. Colorado is now 21-17 overall and 6-9 at home. The Rockies are scoring 3.89 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.39 per contest.
Chad Bettis gets the start for the Rockies tonight. He has started seven games this year and has a 4-1 record with a 2.05 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. Bettis has pitched 44 innings with 27 strikeouts and 14 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won four straight road games and six straight games against NL West opponents. They also are 9-4 in their last 13 games following a victory.
The Rockies have won seven of their last 10 Friday games and six of their last eight against a right-handed starter. They also have won Bettis’ last four games against a winning team.
The Brewers had a nice win on Thursday, but I think the Rockies answer tonight. Milwaukee doesn’t know what it really has in Woodruff. He hasn’t pitched many innings and what he has done has been spotty. Bettis has been very strong for the Rockies and he faces a Milwaukee lineup that really doesn’t put up big numbers.
The Pick: Colorado Rockies -140
