Philadelphia Phillies -117 / Milwaukee Brewers +107 O/U: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies will meet up to continue their MLB series on Tuesday.
In the Monday game, the Phillies secured a 7-4 victory by scoring twice in the second, twice in the fifth and three times in the seventh.
For Tuesday’s matchup, the Brewers will be sending out Brandon Woodruff in the start. Across a 5-1 record this year, Woodruff has a 4.25 ERA with 54 Ks to his credit.
Milwaukee’s offense came up with 12 hits on Monday, but couldn’t turn them into runs. Lorenzo Cain had a great day however with five hits, a run and an RBI.
Over on the Phillies’ side, they’re sending out Jerad Eickhoff in the Tuesday start. Eickhoff has a 2-1 record so far this year alongside a 1.50 ERA and 31 strikeouts.
Philly was out-hit 12-11 on Monday, but did well plating runs. Cesar Hernandez put up a two-run homer and scored three runs.
Philadelphia is 865-908 against the money line when playing against a team with a winning record since 1997 and Milwaukee is 126-90 versus the money line in all games over the last two seasons. The Brewers are 26-13 against the money line in May games over the last two seasons and 52-35 against the money line after a loss in the last two seasons.
Woodruff logged a 5.81 ERA over his first five starts, but since then has been a lot better—better to the tune of three earned runs across 16 innings over his last three appearances.
As for Eickhoff, he’s coming off a great game against the Cardinals, and didn’t allow a runner to second base until the eighth inning.
This should be a fun pitching matchup and a low-scoring affair. I’m not touching the game, but I’m leaning toward Woodruff and the Brew Crew to eke one out.
