Milwaukee Brewers -111 / New York Mets +102 -- O/U: 8.5
The New York Mets and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in game two of their three game set in MLB action from Miller Park on Saturday night.
The New York Mets will look to bounce back after suffering a 3-1 loss in the series opener on Friday. Wilson Ramos accounted for the lone Mets RBI in the loss while Michael Conforto went 2 for 4 with a double. Jeff McNeil, Pete Alonso, Amed Rosario and starting pitcher Steven Matz each had base hits as well in the loss for the Mets. Matz took the loss on the mound after allowing all three runs on nine hits while striking out three to fall to 3-2 on the year. Zack Wheeler will start game two and is 2-2 with a 5.05 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. In his career, Wheeler is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 24 strikeouts against Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to keep their momentum going after picking up the win in the series opener on Friday. Ryan Braun led the Brewers by going 3 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs while Lorenzo Cain had a solo home run to round out Milwaukee’s scoring as a team in the win. Hernan Perez went 3 for 4 with a double while Mike Moustakas went 2 for 4 with a double. Brandon Woodruff added a base hit as well to cap off Milwaukee’s offense as a team in the win. Woodruff got the win to improve to 4-1 on the year after allowing just one run on six hits while striking out seven over five innings of work. Josh Hader closed out the 8th and 9th for his 8th save of the season. Gio Gonzalez will start game two and is 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA and 2 strikeouts this season. In his career, Gonzalez is 15-6 with a 2.85 ERA and 147 strikeouts against the Mets.
New York is 2-10 in Wheeler’s last 12 starts against the NL Central and 1-5 in their last 6 road games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Milwaukee is 5-0 in Gonzalez’s last 5 home starts and 4-1 in their last 5 games against the NL East while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 home games. New York is 1-6 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams in Milwaukee.
I want to take a shot with the Mets, but the problem is we aren’t getting enough plus money to make it worth taking a shot on New York here. Milwaukee looked solid in winning game one on Frida and Gonzalez has had a lot of experience and success against the Mets in his career from his time with the Washington Nationals. I just think that Milwaukee is the better team here and getting them at home with a low line is the way to go in my opinion.
