The Brewers will host the division rival Cardinals in Miller Park as both teams look for some momentum as the first half of the season comes to a close.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals and their high-flying offense will look to get the best of a very impressive Junior Guerra, but it won’t be an easy task.
The Red Birds rank fourth in the majors averaging more than five runs per game, and guys like Matt Carpenter and Aledmys Diaz have really sparked this offense that has exceeded expectations thus far.
St. Louis has had a tough time staying consistent and it’s kept them from winning more than a handful of games.
The Cards will turn to Mike Leake who they signed in the offseason to bolster the rotation. He’s been hit or miss this year, especially on the road where opposing batters are hitting him for a .292 average.
Leake was shelled in his previous start for five earned runs in a 5-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
After finishing May with a 2.31 ERA, he regressed in June and finished the month with a 4.85 ERA.
The Brewers were hanging with both the Cardinals and Pirates in the NL Central but have since fallen back in the standings.
The Brew Crew are 10 games under .500 and most likely won’t be in the NL playoff hunt, but they have some nice young pieces to build around.
Junior Guerra is one of those nice pieces and he’ll look to capitalize off his last two performances where he’s given up just four hits in 15.1 innings pitched.
Guerra comes in with a 6-1 record to go with a 2.93 ERA. Opposing batters are hitting him for a .201 average on the season and the Brewers are 10-2 when he starts.
If Milwaukee can score some runs off the inconsistent Leake, they’ll be in prime contention to win with Guerra on the mound. But scoring runs has been a problem for Milwaukee this year, especially against the Cardinals.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Cardinals are 0-4 in Leake’s last four starts.
- Cardinals are 4-1 in last five vs. Brewers.
- Cardinals are 11-6 on the road vs. NL Central.
- Brewers are 10-2 when Guerra starts.
- Brewers are 13-9 as favorites.
- Brewers O/U is 3-6-1 in last 10 games.
Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The Cardinals seem to have the Brewers’ number this year, but Junior Guerra has been absolutely phenomenal.
He suffered his lone loss of the season to the Cardinals back in May, but the Milwaukee offense was shut down by the impressive Carlos Martinez.
Leake has not been impressive as of late, and the Red Birds have gone 1-5 since the beginning of June whenever he starts. I like Milwaukee to spoil the Cards’ momentum burst heading into the All-Star break.
