Brewers Look for Revenge on Tuesday Night in our MLB Picks

Milwaukee Brewers

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 4:57 PM GMT

Milwaukee rallied after falling behind early to the Padres last night, only to see their comeback halted in extra innings. Let’s review the MLB odds on tonight’s rematch and cash a winner.

Brewers Need to Slow Renfroe

Hunter Renfroe has been the straw that stirs the drink for the Padres’ offense over the last two games and if the Brewers hope to avenge last night’s stinging defeat, they will have to find a solution to the problem that he has become.  Milwaukee was behind most of the game until they tied up last night’s contest in the eighth, sending the game into extra innings. In the top of the 10th inning Eric Sogard smashed a solo shot to move the Brewers in front 5-4. But Hunter Renfroe got a hold of an Oliver Drake fastball and knocked it out of the park with one aboard to secure the 6-5 win. Renfroe has driven in seven runs over his last two games and the rookie now has seven dingers and 17 RBI on the season.

 

The Breakdown
  • San Diego is 10-17 (-5.3 units) against right-handed starters this season.

  • San Diego is 4-9 (-5.4 units) in May this season.

  • San Diego is 63-92 (-21.6 units) after a win over the last three seasons.

  • Milwaukee is 16-11 (+8.6 units) in night games this season.

  • Milwaukee is 10-7 (+4.4 units) after a loss this season.

  • Milwaukee is 9-7 (+5.3 units) on the road this season.

 The Verdict

The Brewers’ lineup can hammer the ball and they should add considerably to their second-ranked offense against San Diego starter Clayton Richard who checks in with a 2-4 mark and a 4.34 ERA. Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson may have an ERA that is only slightly better at 3.99 but he has been stellar in his last two outings and should handle the anemic offense of San Diego (26th) with little difficulty. The MLB odds on this one has me a bit perplexed as Milwaukee is playing the role of underdog in this matchup but that just means the bookmakers pay us the vig when we cash instead of us sending it their way if it loses…which it won’t! Take the Brew Crew and include them in your MLB picks for Tuesday night.
