MLB Pick: Oakland Athletics at Milwaukee Brewers

Brewers MLB PicksOverview

The Oakland Athletics visit Miller Park in Milwaukee tonight for game one of a two game series with the Brewers. The Brewers and Athletics don’t play each other very often and that’s probably good thing for the Brewers as they have won just 1 of 6 meetings going back to 2002.

Head to Head Trends

Athletics are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

Milwaukee Brewers (-125)

The Milwaukee Brewers are 4th in the National League Central with a 26-31 record 14.5 games back of the 1st place Chicago Cubs. The Brewers have been playing some solid ball of late winning 8 of their last 13 games. The Brewers have a decent offense averaging 4.12 runs per game but their pitching has been less then impressive allowing 4.89 runs per game.

Starting for the Brewers today is Zach Davies who is 3-3 with a 4.53 ERA in his 9 starts this season. Davies got off to a slow start but he’s actually been pretty good over his last 6 starts which included tossing 8 scoreless innings in last start while striking out 9.

Milwaukee Brewers Trends

Brewers are 4-1 in Davies’ last 5 starts.
Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 home games vs. a left-handed starter.

Oakland Athletics (+115)

The Oakland Athletics are last in the American League West 7 games under .500 and 10 games out of 1st place. The Athletics have had a few small hot stretches this season where they would win 5 or 6 games in a row but other then that they haven’t really done a whole lot.

On the hill for the Athletics in this one is lefty Sean Manaea who is 2-3 with a 6.16 ERA in 7 starts this season. This is Manaea’s rookie season and so far he hasn’t been overly impressive but he is a big left handed pitcher so if he doesn’t make it as a starter there will probably be plenty of teams with a spot ready for him in their bullpens.

Oakland Athletics Trends

Athletics are 5-16 in their last 21 road games.
Athletics are 4-10 in their last 14 games following an off day.


I’m going with the Milwaukee Brewers over the Athletics in this one. I think the Brewers are just the better team overall plus they’re at home versus a rookie pitcher in an inter-league game so I think they get it done today.
