MLB Betting Lines Preview on San Francisco at Milwaukee

Posted by Alex Murphy on May 26, 2015 in

Everyone knows that repeating as a champion is one of the toughest things to do in sports, but some teams seem to have the ability to make it look easier than most. The San Francisco Giants got off to a bit of a wobbly start this MLB betting season, but right now they are one of the hottest teams in all of baseball. They are now beginning to look like the team that won it all last season, and the Milwaukee Brewers are the latest team to feel their wrath. They will play the third of a 3-game set on Wednesday afternoon in Milwaukee.

An In Depth Look at the MLB Betting Preview on San Francisco at Milwaukee & Game Info

Date/Time: Wednesday, May 27, 1:40 PM
Location: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TV/radio: CSN-BA, KNBR 680, FSWI, Brewers Radio Network, WYMJ 620
Betting Line: TBA

The Giants (26-20) haven’t just been winning recently, they have been quite simply overpowering. They went 34 consecutive innings without giving up a run, which included a 3-game sweep of the Dodgers where they kept LA off the board. They did run into a bit of a wall in Colorado, losing 2 of 3 to the Rockies, but they bounced back nicely to win the opening game in Milwaukee. The San Francisco Giants have also been flashing some real power of late, and have been scoring runs at a rate that makes them a nightmare for opposing pitchers. Ryan Vogelsong (3-2, 4.60 ERA) will be on the hill for the Giants on Wednesday in search of his third straight win.

It looked for a while as though the Milwaukee Brewers (16-30) may be on the road to righting the ship a little, but a 10-game road trip pretty much put an end to all of that. They went 4-6 on the road, and finished it up by losing 3 of 4 to the Atlanta Braves (In fact, their only win was a solid 11-0 victory on Friday, May 22nd that gave Brewers’ fans some hope). Their return home didn’t go as planned either, as the Giants took care of them pretty easily in their first game back. The Brewers have only won 8 games at home all season, so there is no reason to believe that their fortunes might in any way change during this homestand. At time of writing, Milwaukee had yet to make a decision on who would be the starter for the final game in this series.

Key Betting Trends

  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of San Francisco’s last 8 games on the road
  • San Francisco is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games when playing Milwaukee
  • Milwaukee is 6-2 SU in its last 8 games when playing at home against San Francisco
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Milwaukee’s last 10 games at home

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets

I don’t really think it makes much of a difference who Milwaukee sends to the mound on Wednesday, especially with the Giants bats swinging hot right now. I like San Francisco to win this one going away.
