Brewers flip flopping

The Brewers are actually coming off a surprising series loss at the Chicago White Sox. They have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. The Brewers are 37-23 overall with a 19-12 record on the road. Milwaukee is averaging 4.23 runs per game on the season while allowing 3.75 per contest.

Junior Guerra takes the mound for the Brewers on Tuesday night. He is 3-3 with a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. Over his last four starts, he has given up a total of five runs. Guerra has pitched a total of 54.1 innings this season and has 51 strikeouts with 20 walks.

Indians back in a slump

After going on a six-game win streak, the Indians have followed that up by losing three straight at Minnesota this weekend. Cleveland is now 30-28 overall and 18-11 at home. The Tribe are putting up 5.02 runs per game this season while allowing 4.66 per contest.

Corey Kluber gets the start for the Indians tonight. He is 8-2 on the season with a 2.02 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. Kluber has pitched a total of 84.2 innings this season and has 88 strikeouts with just 10 walks. Kluber hasn’t walked a batter in five of his last six starts and he hasn’t allowed a run in his last two outings.

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers are 21-6 in their last 27 games following a loss and 6-2 in their last eight series openers. They also are 9-3 in their last 12 road games against a right-handed starter.


The Indians have won 37 of their last 52 home games. They also are 44-17 in Kluber’s last 61 starts overall and 58-28 in his last 86 home starts.


Kluber has been really locked in in his recent starts and I think he should be able to continue that today against a Milwaukee lineup that struggles to hit against average pitching. While the Brewers have good pitching in their own right, I trust the Cleveland hitters at home more than I would Milwaukee on the road. Especially against one of the best pitchers in the game.


The Pick: Cleveland Indians -210
