The Houston Astros and Milwaukee Brewers meet Tuesday in MLB action atAmerican Family Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Houston Astros Betting Preview
The Houston Astros have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 8 games. The Astros have won 8 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Mauricio Dubon leads the Astros with 47 hits and 9 RBI, while Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez have combined for 92 hits and 79 RBI. J.P. France gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 4.11 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be France’s first career game against the Brewers.
Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview
The Milwaukee Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 7 games. The Brewers have lost 10 of their last 11 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 43 hits and 24 RBI, while Willy Adames and Brian Anderson have combined for 72 hits and 50 RBI. Colin Rea gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 5.52 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Rea’s first career game against the Astros.
The Astros are 31-12 in their last 43 road games and 39-16 in their last 55 Tuesday games. The Brewers are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 13-6 in their last 19 during game 2 of a series. The under is 5-0 in Astros last 5 road games. The under is 4-0 in Brewers last 4 Tuesday games. The Astros are 14-38 in the last 52 meetings in Milwaukee.
I'm going to side with the over in this spot as the Milwaukee Brewers offense is kind of due for a breakout performance and neither pitcher has been great. J.P. France is a rookie still finding his footing and he could struggle on the road. Colin Rea has a 5.52 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through 31 innings. The Houston Astros are tearing the cover off the ball right now. I expect some fireworks. Give me the over.
