Milwaukee Brewers vs. Boston Red Sox Betting Analysis

The Red Sox host the Brewers at Fenway Park for Game first of a three-game series on Friday, July 29, 2022.

The Milwaukee leads the National League Central with a record of 55-44, despite yielding a 29-24 record on the road so far this season. The Red Sox entered Friday night fifth in the American League East, 17 games behind the Yankees for the division lead. At home they are 25-25, with an overall record of 50-50.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Boston Red Sox Betting Prediction

The Brewers send RHP Brandon Woodruff to the mound against Boston’s 11th ranked scoring offense on Friday night (4.56 RSPG), who’s having another solid campaign for Milwaukee sitting 8-3 with a 3.73 ERA across 14 starts (1.16 WHIP), which is a slight downtrend from the 2.56 ERA he posted last season; and 3.05 ERA the year before that.

On the other hand, the Red Sox send RHP Brayan Bello to the hill against Milwaukee’s eighth-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.64 RSPG), who’s struggled miserably since getting called up to the big leagues, considering he’s 0-2 with a 10.50 ERA across three career appearances for Boston (2.50 WHIP).

I’ll back Milwaukee here, as Woodruff has tossed five innings or more and allowed two runs or less in four of his last five outings for the Brewers (3-0, 2.20 ERA); likely presenting an uphill battle for the Red Sox and Bello, who’s surrendered four runs or more in four innings or less in all three career appearances for Boston (12 IP, 14 ER).

Score Prediction: Brewers 8, Red Sox 4
Best Bet: Brewers -1.5 (+100)

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Boston Red Sox – Pitching Matchup

Milwaukee: Brandon Woodruff (8-3, 3.73 ERA)

Brandon Woodruff will make his 14th start of the season for Milwaukee, who’s hoping to find some traction after posting a 8-3 record and 3.73 ERA thus far, while tallying a 1.16 WHIP, 22 walks, and 92 strikeouts across 72.1 innings of action. The 29-year-old right-hander lifted the Brewers to a home win over the Colorado Rockies on July 23, 2022. Woodruff tossed six innings in the 9-4 win by Colorado Rockies, while giving up one run on four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk. Woodruff is 3-3 with a 5.26 ERA across this season’s eight starts on the road, which includes 15 walks, 46 strikeouts, and a 1.49 WHIP over 37.2 innings of action.

Boston: Brayan Bello (0-2, 10.50 ERA)

Boston’ right-hander Brayan Bello takes the mound for his fourth start of the season. Bello looks to improve on a 0-2 record and 10.50 ERA in 12 innings, while striking out nine, walking eight batters, and posting a 2.50 WHIP. Bello got assigned the loss in his last start, which came at home against the Toronto on July 24, 2022. He threw four innings, allowing five runs on nine hits with two walks and two strikeouts in an eventual 4-8 the Red Sox defeat. In his two home starts this season, Bello is 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA, a 2.50 WHIP, five walks and four strikeouts over eight innings of work.
