The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -141 / San Francisco Giants +120 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants meet Sunday in MLB action at Oracle Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers could use a win after losing three of their last four games. The Brewers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 79 hits and 56 RBI while Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain have combined for 139 hits and 72 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.80 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 3-2 with a 4.71 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Giants have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The San Francisco Giants have have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 57 hits and 28 RBI while Joe Panik and Kevin Pillar have combined for 110 hits and 51 RBI. Jeff Samardzija gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 3.72 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Samardzija is 3-6 with a 4.28 ERA and 85 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games, 24-9 in their last 33 during game 3 of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 vs. National League West. The Giants are 5-11 in their last 16 Sunday games, 10-26 in their last 36 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Samardzija's last 6 starts. The Brewers are 5-13 in the last 18 meetings in San Francisco and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Samardzija's last 7 starts overall. The over is 5-2 in Anderson's last 7 road starts.
Anderson has been solid throughout the season, but he's been hittable on the road and has given up 11 hits six earned runs in his last 10 innings overall. Samardzija is having his best season yet in a Giants uniform and is allowing a 2.53 ERA with a .216 batting average in 32 innings at home. The San Francisco Giants are also finding ways to score runs for a change and look like a different team during this four-game winning streak. How long will it continue? Who knows? I still like the Giants and the plus money based on their current form.
