Milwaukee Brewers vs. San Diego Padres

Where and when:  PetCo Park, San Diego, California, Tuesday, 10:10 pm EST

The Milwaukee Brewers will play the opener of a three-game set at PetCo Park in San Diego, California, as they take on the Padres in their first meeting of the year in National League action.  

Injuries to their pitching staff have continued to increase as a total of five pitchers hit the list from the end of May to the present.  For their series with the Rockies, they were limited to starting Nick Margeicius (2-6, 6.41 ERA) along with Cal Quantrill 1-2, 5.46 ERA), who combined to give up fourteen homers in just over three innings of pitching to the offensive-minded Rockies.  Eric Lauer ties Joey Lucchesi for total wins for the Padres, yet, was torched for five earned in game two of the set in Denver in just 2 ⅔ innings.

Their last series at Petco Park saw San Diego get the tie versus the Washington Nationals as they went up two games to nothing before surrendering the final two after plating just three runs, total.  In all, they have dropped six of their last ten at home.

The Milwaukee Brewers remain in the top spot within the NL Central division just ahead of the pursuing Chicago Cubs.  Furthermore, they entered their three-game road set versus the San Francisco Giants winners of five of their last six games.  However, a slow night from their offense, led by Christian Yelich, made it unable to overcome lackluster pitching performances in games one and two from normally-sound Zack Davies (7-1) along with Jimmy Nelson (0-1) and suffered the series loss.

They are now on the back end of an eight-game road trip.  And with a tie in a two-game set versus the Houston Astros along with a terrible, overall, performance versus the Giants, the team will certainly be looking to show and prove versus a struggling Padres squad.  Fortunately, they will trot out a pitcher that has assisted the team in winning nine straight contests with him on the mound.

Woodruff continues to be a spark for Brewer’s staff

Brandon Woodruff (8-1) ERA has gone up a bit (3.87) in his last three outings after allowing twelve earned runs to the Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates and, most recently, the Houston Astros.  However, the Brewers picked up wins in each contest thanks to the offense plating twenty-eight total runs. Woodruff, however, pitched seven strong innings in the 6-3 win while also preventing the home run in a four-hit performance, in the end.

The third-year right-hander from Mississippi State is brimming with confidence at the moment and will like nothing better than to get a bit more time to get acquainted with San Diego’s lineup.  In his last matchup in 2018, he pitched 2 ⅔ innings while allowing an earned run on two hits in an 8-6, ninth inning rally on May 30th.

Woodruff has only one at bat versus Manny Machado, Manuel Margot, Eric Hosmer, along with Austin Hedges, and they are all hitless.

No pitcher assigned for Padres for opener

The Padres have not decided upon a pitcher for this contest on Tuesday night; However, their staff can certainly bear the brunt of the blame during a horrible string of outings.  As stated earlier, they have had to deal with a slew of recent injuries, yet their collective ERA has risen to 4.65 on the year, good for 19th in the league, due to an awful display on the mound versus the Colorado Rockies in their prior series as they allowed a total of thirty-nine runs, total, during the three-game set.

And while the Padres have a bit more solid at Petco Park this year, they gave up an average of 5.5 runs per game during a prior ten game home stand in three-game losses to the Philadelphia Phillies and the Miami Marlins before settling for the tie in a four-game set versus the Washington Nationals, as stated.  Whoever should pull the start for game one for San Diego, it is apparent their pitching must get better to allow the team to remain in games, particularly with an offense that was averaging a tad over two runs in four games prior to their series with the Rockies. The Padres plated forty-four runs during this time.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

 

Not only is Milwaukee the better team at this point in the season, but past performances from Woodruff will spark overall team performance in he will confuse a San Diego lineup that, gained a bit of a shot in the arm at the plate versus Colorado; Nonetheless, one that continues to struggle at the plate during a tumultuous time.

Prediction: Pick:  Milwaukee Brewers -110

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I happen to see this as a low-scoring affair as the Brewers will be bringing to the mound one of their most exciting pitcher in Woodruff to the mound in the opener.  On the other hand, the Padres cannot afford to make many mistakes on the mound if they are to get their off-and-on offense a fighter’s chance.

Prediction: Pick: Under 8.5

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I only see the Brewers picking up a nice win in this contest versus San Diego.  Expect their dismal offense to pick things up a bit while putting up some early runs.  On the other hand, the Padres seem to struggle at the plate, more often than not, which will lead to a multiple run lead for the road team in the end.

Prediction: Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -1.5

First Five Innings Side Pick
Rating:

Look for the Brewers to possess a small lead at the end of five innings in this contest.  San Diego has indeed picked up some momentum as of late; However, the Brewers are in desperate need of a win if they are to hang on to the top position in the NL Central.

Prediction: Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -0.5

First Five Innings Total Bet
Rating:

As stated, San Diego continues with their present struggles at the plate.  On the other hand, runs have been tough to come by for the Brewers as well.  With that being said, look for the under to be the strong play at the halfway mark of this game as I see a low-scoring, competitive contest versus two teams that are desperately in need of a victory to maintain/pick up confidence.

Prediction: Pick: Under 5

First Five Innings Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Brewers will hold on to a small lead at the midway point of this contest as their offense is clearly the much better of the two.  And while they are experiencing a bit of a lull at the plate, they are too good of a squad to be held back for an extended amount of time.  In all, take the Brewers on the money line after five innings.

Prediction: Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -115
