Phillies split with Cubs
Philadelphia began a long road trip with four games in Chicago against the Cubs this week. They split the two games, but they are 5-2 in their last seven. The Phillies are 29-21 on the season, 11-11 on the road and 27-22 with the under. Philadelphia has Jerad Eickhoff on the mound tonight. He is 2-2 on the season with a 3.23 ERA.
The Phillies are right near the top 10 in hitting and pitching this season. Their pitching staff has a 4.05 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Offensively, Philly is putting up 4.98 runs per game while hitting .246. Rhys Hoskins is leading the team with nine doubles, 11 home runs and 38 RBI while Bryce Harper has 13 doubles, nine home runs and 32 RBI.
Brewers looking for a trend
Milwaukee is coming off an 11-9 win at home over Cincinnati, but the Brewers are just 2-3 in their last five games. Milwaukee is 29-22 on the season, 17-9 at home and 30-20 with the under. The Brewers have Chase Anderson on the mound. He is 2-0 on the season with a 2.66 ERA.
The Brewers are in the middle of the league in hitting and pitching. The offense is averaging 4.90 runs per game while hitting .249. On the mound, Milwaukee has a 4.31 team ERA and a 1.32 team WHIP. Leading hitter Christian Yelich is questionable to play tonight due to a back injury. Yelich has 19 home runs and 41 RBI. Mike Moustakas is adding 12 doubles, 12 home runs and 30 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Phillies are 5-1 in their last six road games against a right-handed starter and 4-1 in Eickhoff’s last five starts against NL Central opponents.
The Brewers are 35-16 in their last 51 home games and 9-3 in their last 12 games against a right-handed starter.
The Brewers have won three of four against the Phillies in Philadelphia this season. Eickhoff has given up nine runs over his last nine innings after starting the year really strong. He gave up five runs in four innings to the Brewers. Anderson only has three starts, but he has allowed just two earned runs over his last 15 innings on the mound. Hitting was the issue for Philly in previous losses to the Brewers and I think it will be the problem against tonight.
MLB Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers -135
