The Milwaukee Brewers will host the Los Angeles Dodgers for game one of their three-game series from American Family Field on the MLB Network.

Dodgers Betting Preview

Los Angeles improved to 21-14 after taking two of three from San Diego. The Dodgers have won five of six games to begin May, and they’ll look to wrap this road trip up strong. The Los Angeles offense is scoring 5.31 runs per game, while batting .235, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.26 ERA, with a 1.28 WHIP. Freddie Freeman has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and up to team-leads of 41 hits and 25 runs.Max Muncy has produced a run in three of the last five games, and he’s first on the team in RBI (28).

Tony Gonsolin (0-0, 3.38  ERA, 4 Ks ) will get the call for Los Angeles. The fifth-year pitcher is still shaking off the rust from a late April season debut. Gonsolin gave up three runs in 4.2 innings pitched against Philadelphia last week, and he’ll attempt to build on that in this tough spot with Milwaukee.

Brewers Betting Preview 

Milwaukee fell to 19-15 after dropping two of three to San Francisco. The Brewers snapped a five-game skid in the series finale with the Giants, and they’ll look to get back on track this week. The Milwaukee offense is 4.17 scoring runs per game, while batting .240, with a .317 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.62 ERA, with a 1.24 WHIP. Christian Yelich recorded a pair of hits in the win over SFG, and he leads the Brewers in hits (32) and runs (25). William Contreras added three hits of his own to bring his team-lead in BA to .289. Rowdy Tellez has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he’s first on the team in RBI (22). 

Freddy Peralta (3-2, 3.63 ERA, 41 Ks) will take the mound for Milwaukee. The sixth-year pitcher put together a gem at the hitter-friendly Coors Field last week against the Rockies, striking out ten in six full innings, while allowing just two runs. Freddy P has been strong at home this season (3-1, 2.66 ERA), and he may make life tough for the Dodgers’ bats. 

Los Angeles vs Milwaukee Trends 

LA Dodgers is 18-17 against the spread this season, with a 19-15-1 O/U record. Milwaukee is 16-18 ATS this year, with a 15-18-1 over/under record. 

Corey’s Free Pick

Milwaukee jumped out to a great start last month, but May hasn’t treated them very well, and they need to make a stand at home versus a fellow NL pennant contender. Freddy Peralta will take the mound on the heels of two great starts, and I like that momentum carrying into this matchup, which should lead to Brew Crew victory. Tony Gonsolin hasn’t looked like the 16-game winner of 2022 early on, and the Brewers should be able to find success at the plate versus him. Bet on Milwaukee to take game one of this series.
