Milwaukee Brewers vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Predictions

The Brewers defeated the Phillies 5-3 on Saturday to tie the series up at one game apiece. Milwaukee hit the ball fairly well with nine hits, five runs, and went 4-8 with runners in scoring position. Starting pitcher Adrian Houser went 6.0 innings and gave up five hits and three earned runs. The other three pitchers used gave up a combined two hits and zero runs. The southpaw Eric Lauer is scheduled to take the mound Sunday. Lauer is 1-0 in two games this season and has allowed eight hits, four earned runs, and struck out 10 batters in 10.1 innings of work.  

After winning game one 4-2, the Phillies struggled to have the same success on Saturday. Philadelphia was held to seven hits, three earned runs, and were 2-4 with runners in scoring position. Starting pitcher Zack Wheeler lasted 5.0 innings and gave up seven hits and four earned runs. The other four pitchers used gave up a combined two hits and zero runs. Right-handed pitcher Aaron Nola Is expected to start for the Phillies. Nola is 1-2 in three games this season and has allowed 13 hits, nine earned runs, and struck out 16 batters in 14.2 innings.  

I like Milwaukee moneyline and the total to go over here. The Brewers have struggled to score runs consistently, but this young roster is bound to break out eventually and what better time to do it than on Sunday Night Baseball. The Phillies have been solid at the plate this season and should help push the total over. While I do think the Phillies have a decent chance to win this game, I like the value in the Brewers at +146. Backing Milwaukee moneyline and over eight runs here.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Philadelphia Phillies Betting Conclusion

The Brewers have a slugging percentage of just .340 this season, but this will be a great game to break out under the bright lights on ESPN. The Phillies should do their part with the total as the bats have been consistent for them throughout the season. I like the Brewers to win because of the depth in their bullpen. If Lauer can't get it going Sunday, the Brewers have a great group of relievers that can help secure the W. Backing Milwaukee moneyline and over eight runs in this matchup.
