After sweeping San Diego on the road, Milwaukee heads back home to face divisional foe St. Louis. Milwaukee will be throwing out Zach Davies to oppose Miles Mikolas. We saw Milwaukee open up as (-128) money line favorites, but they have since dropped to (-113) favorites while 66% of the public is backing them.
St. Louis Cardinals
After a three year hiatus, Mikolas has made his way back into the majors. Not too much to rave about with a career ERA of 5.32 and FIP of 4.81. He doesn’t rack up strikes (6.11 K/9), does okay with walks (3.35 BB/9), and is usually due for one HR per game (1.18 HR/9).
Mikolas doesn’t overwhelm in any facet of the game, while his 65% left-on-base percentage is a little worrisome. St. Louis seems to have faith in him awarding him with a 2 year contract worth $15 million even after he’s been out of the league for a couple of years.
St. Louis’ lineup has had their way with Davies posting a slash line of .341/.378/.615 in 91 at-bats. The extra-base hits have been natural for them as they’ve hit eight 2B, 1 3B and 5 HR, which has totaled 13 RBIs.
Sure, he may look like a little kid, but Davies proved he could hang with the big dogs last year posting a 3.90 ERA and 4.22 FIP. It was also encouraging to see he had a WAR of 2.8.
The strikeouts aren’t a big component of his game (5.83 K/9), but he also didn’t give up free bases (2.59 BB/9) nor the long ball (0.94 HR/9). The ground ball was part of his game inducing them 50% of his pitches, while posting a respectable .302 BABIP.
Runs have been easy to come by for Milwaukee as they racked up 17 total runs against San Diego. They currently own a slash line of .280/.333/.381 while smacking 10 extra base hits.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction: St. Louis snaps Milwaukee’s three-game win streak
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: St. Louis +106
St. Louis must see something in Mikolas who was rewarded a nice 2 year contract even though he hadn’t pitched in the big leagues in a couple of year.
The money line has been dropping for Milwaukee despite the majority of the public backing them, so there is some sharp money backing the Cardinals.
St. Louis has had their way with Davies, so I’ll back the money in this matchup.
