|Date & Time||Friday June 15, 2018, 8:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -135 / Philadelphia Phillies +125 --- Over/Under: 9
The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers meet Friday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The Philadelphia Phillies could use a victory here after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Phillies have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Philadelphia Phillies have won five of their last nine games when scoring more than two runs. Odubel Herrera leads the Phillies with 70 hits and 34 RBI while Cesar Hernandez and Carlos Santana have combined for 116 hits and 60 RBI. Jake Arrieta gets the ball, and he is 5-4 with a 2.97 ERA and 48 strikeouts this season. Arrieta is 8-5 with a 2.96 ERA and 85 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Brewers have allowed seven runs in their last three games and four or less runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won six of their last nine games when allowing four or less runs. Offensively, Lorenzo Cain leads the Brewers with 69 hits and 22 RBI while Christian Yelich and Travis Shaw have combined for 125 hits and 71 RBI. Brent Suter gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 4.61 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Suter is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League Central, 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 2-6 in Arrietas last 8 starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in their last 6 vs. National League East, 8-2 in Suters last 10 home starts and 4-1 in Suters last 5 starts. The over is 4-0 in Suters last 4 home starts and the over is 4-1-1 in Arrietas last 6 road starts.
Usually getting Arrieta and plus money is worth a look, but he's allowed four or more runs in three of his last five starts and has an ERA over four on the road with an allowed batting average of .295. Suter has allowed three or less runs in each of his last five starts and the Brewers have won five of the last seven games in which he's pitched. The Philadelphia Phillies also as a team overall have been fade material the last two weeks, while it's only a matter of time before the Milwaukee Brewers get back on track. I'll lay the reasonable price with the home team here.
