Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview
The Brewers look for a win after winning 7 of their last 10 games. The Brewers already clinched the NL Central. The Brewers pitching staff is 3rd in ERA (3.75), 2nd in WHIP (1.18) and 5th in quality starts (68). The Brewers' offense is 17th in runs per game (4.55), 23rd in batting average (.242) and 23rd in homers (162). Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 148 hits and 75 RBI, while William Contreras and Willy Adames have combined for 260 hits and 154 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 12-9 with a 3.71 ERA and 206 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 3-1 with a 4.07 ERA and 34 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
Miami Marlins Betting Preview
The Marlins look for a win after winning 6 of their last 10 games. The Marlins are 1 game back in the NL wild card race. The Marlins pitching staff is 16th in ERA (4.28), 18th in WHIP (1.29) and 16th in quality starts (50). The Marlins' offense is 26th in runs per game (4.15), 5th in batting average (.258) and 24th in homers (160). Luis Arraez leads the Marlins with 202 hits and 69 RBI, while Bryan De La Cruz and Jorge Soler have combined for 261 hits and 147 RBI. Edward Cabrera gets the ball, and he is 6-7 with a 4.35 ERA and 110 strikeouts this season. Cabrera is 0-1 with a 2.35 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
You can make a strong case for the Brewers with Freddy Peralta on the mound, but the truth is they don't have a ton to play for with the division wrapped up. The Marlins are fighting for their life in a tight wild card race, and they have to take advantage of home games if they're going to lock up a spot. Edward Cabrera has issues with control at times, but he has raw talent and could put together a dazzling performance if he's got his stuff going. Big game for the Marlins. Give me the home team that's more desperate for a win.
