Brewers drop opener

The Brewers were lit up on Friday, losing 8-3 to the struggling White Sox for their second loss in three games. The Brewers are now 36-22 overall with an 18-11 record on the road. Milwaukee is putting up 4.28 runs per game this season while allowing just 3.78 per contest.

Milwaukee sends Jhoulys Chacin to the mound this afternoon. He is 3-1 through 12 starts this year with a 3.69 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Chacin has 45 strikeouts and 28 walks through 63.1 innings this season.

White Sox end skid

The White Sox put an end to their four-game losing streak on Friday with the 8-3 win. The Sox are now 17-37 overall and 9-18 at home. Chicago is putting up 4.02 runs per game this season while allowing 5.48 per contest.

James Shields will be the starter for Chicago this afternoon. He has a 1-5 record with a 4.54 ERA and 1.25 WHIP through 11 starts this season. Shields has went seven innings over his last three starts, allowing six runs in 21.1 innings. Shields has 45 strikeouts with 30 walks this season.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers have won 11 of their last 15 games and 20 of their last 26 games following a loss. They also are 21-9 in their last 29 road games against a right-handed starter.

Chicago

The White Sox are just 3-7 in their last 10 interleague home games and 18-38 in their last 56 interleague games overall.

Prediction:

While Shields has been pitching somewhat well lately, I don’t see Chicago have the roster to put together wins consistently, especially against a winning team like Milwaukee. The Brewers have strong pitching that should be able to bounce back from Friday’s letdown.

 

The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -140
