Milwaukee Brewers -175 / Miami Marlins +161
The Miami Marlins and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in game one of a three game set in MLB action from Miller Park on Tuesday night.
The Miami Marlins will look to keep the momentum going after winning five of their last seven games, including back-to-back 9-3 wins over the Padres to win the series. Jorge Alfaro went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double and four RBIs. Harold Ramirez and Starlin Castro each had two RBIs with Ramirez going 3 for 5 while Castro had a double. Garrett Cooper had a solo home run to round out Miami’s scoring as a team in the win. Brian Anderson went 3 for 5 while Martin Prado went 2 for 4 with a double and Miguel Rojas added a base knock of his own in the winning effort. Trevor Richards got the win to improve to 3-5 on the year after throwing five shutout innings, giving up just one hit while striking out eight. Pablo Lopez will start game one and is 3-5 with a 4.99 ERA and 55 strikeouts this season. This will be Lopez’s second career start against Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to build on a series victory over Pittsburgh following a 4-2 win in the series finale on Sunday. Eric Thames went 2 for 3 with a home run, a double and three RBIs. Manny Pina added an RBI to round out Milwaukee’s scoring as a team in the win while Christian Yelich went 2 for 4 with a double. Ryan Braun added two hits of his own while Hernan Perez and Orlando Arcia each added base hits as well in the victory. Zach Davies got the win to improve to 6-0 on the year after giving up just two runs on eight hits over eight innings of work. Corbin Burnes picked up his 1st save of the year by closing out the 9th. Chase Anderson will start the opener and is 3-0 with a 3.31 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. In his career, Anderson is 3-2 with a 3.57 ERA and 30 strikeouts against Miami.
Miami is 1-7 in Lopez’s last 8 road starts and 15-44 in their last 59 road games while the over is 36-17-2 in their last 55 series opening matchups. Milwaukee is 7-2 in Anderson’s last 9 home starts against a team with a losing record and 8-3 in their last 11 home games while the over is 4-1 in Anderson’s last 5 starts against the NL East. Miami is 2-6 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams in Milwaukee.
There’s no denying that Miami has been quite profitable in the underdog role as of late. However, while Lopez has had a lot of quality outings lately, the majority have come at home. In his last three road starts, Lopez has allowed 18 runs in 12.1 innings. Milwaukee has been pretty solid at home and Anderson has been a decent arm from what we’ve seen so far this season, so I’d lay the juice with Milwaukee in this spot.
