Brewers bounce back
The Brewers answered Friday’s 8-3 loss with a 5-0 victory on Saturday for their sixth win in eight games. The Brewers are now 37-22 overall with an 19-11 record on the road. Milwaukee is putting up 4.28 runs per game this season while allowing just 3.78 per contest.
Brent Suter takes the mound for the Brewers on Sunday afternoon. He has a 5-3 record this year through 12 appearances. Suter has won his last three starts and now has a 4.63 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP. Over 58.1 innings in 2018, Suter has 48 strikeouts with 12 walks.
White Sox fall flat
The White Sox weren’t able to sustain their success for long, getting shutout on Saturday. The Sox are now 17-38 overall and 9-19 at home. Chicago is putting up 4.02 runs per game this season while allowing 5.48 per contest.
Dylan Covey will get the start for Chicago today. He has started just three games this season and is 1-1 with a 3.63 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Covey has 14 strikeouts and seven walks through 17.1 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won 11 of their last 15 road games and 11 of Suter’s last 16 starts. They also have won 13 of their last 16 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
Chicago is 2-6 in its last 8 Sunday games and 1-5 in their last six home games against a left-handed starter.
Covey has some promising numbers through limited action and I think he can continue that against an average Milwaukee lineup. However, he doesn’t get deep into games and will eventually hand the ball over to an awful bullpen. I think this game will be close for a while before Milwaukee pulls away late.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -165
