The San Francisco Giants and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in MLB action from American Family Field on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


Milwaukee is a -130 home favorite while San Francisco is a +110 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Alex Wood will start for San Francisco and is 0-0 with a 4.05 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Milwaukee is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

San Francisco’s 5-0 win on Thursday made it three wins for the Giants in the last four head-to-head meetings with the Brewers.


San Francisco is 7-2 in their last 9 games overall and 13-28 in their last 41 road games against a team with a winning record while the under is 10-1 in their last 11 game two matchups. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 14-6 in their last 20 game two matchups while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a left-handed starter.


I’m backing the Brewers here. Freddy Peralta has been far more effective at home this season with an ERA that’s four runs lower than his road ERA, and while the giants have been playing the better ball as a whole, I’m still not sure what to make of Alex Wood in the starting role and think he could be in trouble here. I’ll back the Brew Crew at home in this one.
