MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 5-1 in their last six during game three of a series. Milwaukee is 13-3 in the last 16 Woodruff starts.

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 1-4 in their last five home games. Pittsburgh is 2-6 in the last eight Kingham starts.

Prediction:

Woodruff has really come into his own as a starting pitcher over the last month-plus and is coming off a fantastic start against the Phillies. This will be a reasonably tough test, but if he can navigate around the likes of Bell and Marte he should be in good shape. Meanwhile, Kingham has had a rough go of it much of his time at the MLB level. Taking Milwaukee seems like the only right choice here.
