Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres Betting Predictions

The Milwaukee Brewers enter this matchup first in the NL Central with a three-game lead over the second place St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers are coming off a three-game series against the Washington Nationals, winning two of the three games. The bats have been solid for Milwaukee this season, averaging 4.70 runs per game. The bullpen is also playing well and have recorded two shut outs within their last six games. Right-handed pitcher Corbin Burnes is scheduled to start on Tuesday. Burnes is 1-2 in eight games this season with an ERA of 2.26 and has given up 35 hits, 13 earned runs, and struck out 62 batters in 51.2 innings of work.  

The San Diego Padres are currently second in the NL West, half a game behind the first place Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres most recently swept San Francisco in a three-game series and have won seven of their last 10. The offense has been consistent this year for San Diego, averaging 4.5 runs per game. San Diego’s bullpen has been excellent as of late, holding opponents to one run or less in four of their last six games. The left hander Blake Snell is expected to take the mound on Tuesday. Snell is 0-1 in his one start this season with an ERA of 7.36 and gave up three hits, three earned runs, and struck out five batters in 3.2 innings.  

Both of these teams have been playing excellent baseball, with each team going 7-3 SU over their last 10 games. I like the total to go over in game-two of this series. Snell will be taking the mound for just the second time this season after being sidelined with a left adductor tightness and did not look good in his first outing back. Burnes has been solid this season for the Brewers, but the Padres have been hitting the ball well recently and that trend should continue. Backing the over in this matchup.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres Betting Conclusion

The Brewers are road favorites in this matchup with Blake Snell taking the mound for just the second time this season. While I would lean towards the Brewers to win this game, I think the smart play is the over. San Diego should be able to continue the success they’ve had on offense as of late and the Brewers will want to take advantage of Snell’s lack of play this season. Backing the over in game-two.
