Brewers hitting their stride
Milwaukee has been one of the better teams over the last handful of weeks. They have won eight of their last 10 coming into this weekend series. The Brewers are now 36-21 overall with an 18-10 record on the road. Milwaukee is putting up 4.30 runs per game this season while allowing just 3.70 per contest.
Chase Anderson gets the start for the Brewers tonight. He has started 10 games this season and has a 4-3 record with a 4.42 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Anderson has pitched 55.0 innings this year and has 38 strikeouts with 22 walks.
White Sox still losing
The White Sox haven’t been able to find any consistency when it comes to winning. They enter this weekend having lost four straight and six of their last seven. The Sox are now 16-37 overall and 8-18 at home. Chicago is putting up 3.94 runs per game this season while allowing 5.53 per contest.
Hector Santiago gets the start for the White Sox tonight. He has started five games and appeared in a total of 15 games this year. He has a 1-2 record with a 4.87 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Santiago has 40 strikeouts and 22 walks over 44.1 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won six of their last seven series openers and four of their last five interleague road games. They also have won 10 of their last 13 on the road.
The White Sox are just 2-7 in their last nine interleague home games. They are also 5-18 in their last 23 games against NL Central opponents.
The Brewers are rolling right now and I don’t see the White Sox being able to slow them down. Chicago doesn’t have a dominant pitcher to slow down Milwaukee’s recent hitting uptick and the Sox certainly don’t have the hitting to light up this strong Brewers’ staff.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -135
