The Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants meet Saturday in MLB action at AT&T Park.

The Milwaukee Brewers look for another victory after winning five of their last seven games. The Brewers have scored 13 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in five straight games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won five of their last six games when scoring more than two runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 111 hits and 54 RBI while Lorenzo Cain and Travis Shaw have combined for 179 hits and 87 RBI. Jhoulys Chacin gets the ball, and he is 9-3 with a 3.58 ERA and 97 strikeouts this season. Chacin is 8-7 with a 3.22 ERA and 85 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants could use a win here after losing five of their last six games. The Giants have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and three or more runs in six straight games. The San Francisco Giants have lost 12 of their last 16 games when allowing more than one run. Offensively, Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 102 hits and 42 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 188 hits and 76 RBI. Johnny Cueto gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.76 ERA and 38 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 11-3 with a 2.74 ERA and 117 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.

The Brewers are 1-6 in their last 7 Saturday games, 0-5 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 13-5 in Chacins last 18 starts. The Giants are 2-5 in their last 7 Saturday games, 5-1 in Cuetos last 6 home starts and 8-3 in Cuetos last 11 starts. The Brewers are 3-11 in the last 14 meetings in San Francisco and 6-17 in the last 23 meetings.

We're once again getting the better, hotter team in the Brewers with the plus money. It's hard to turn that down. The San Francisco Giants can't put runs on the board in the second half, something that has hurt this team all season long and has prevented them from really putting a run together. Cueto has shown flashes since his return, but he's given up 12 runs in his last 17 innings and has allowed eight homers in his last four starts wen he allowed zero bombs in his first four starts. Give me the Brewers again and the sweet price. 

Milwaukee Brewers +120
