Why The Brewers Could Cover The Spread

The Brewers are a team that struggles to hit the baseball. However, they still have some players that can do some damage at the plate if they find the right pitch and if they get hot.

Rowdy Tellez is batting .220 with 12 home runs, 31 RBIs, and 21 runs. However, he is hitless through four games. Owen Miller is hitting .284 with four home runs, 19 RBIs, and 22 runs. Sadly, he is in a 1 for 14 stretch. Christian Yelich is batting .267 with nine home runs, 32 RBIs, and 49 runs. Meanwhile, William Contreras is hitting .241 with eight home runs, 24 RBIs, and 27 runs. The Brewers are 28th in batting average, 25th in on-base percentage, 26th in runs, 17th in home runs, and 27th in slugging percentage.

The Brewers will need good pitching to support the hitting. Now, Miley gets to take on a lineup that is not strong, and then he will hand it off to a bullpen that is 17th in team ERA.

The Brewers will cover the spread if they can jump out to an early lead. Furthermore, they need Tellez and Miller to snap out of their cold streaks. The bullpen must pitch well in this battle.

Why The Guardians Could Cover The Spread

The Guardians were poor hitters early in the season. However, they have slowly picked it up and built themselves back up to respectability. But the team still does not have that much pop.

Josh Naylor is batting .295 with nine home runs, 55 RBIs, and 26 runs. Likewise, Jose Ramirez is hitting .293 with 11 home runs, 44 RBIs, and 43 runs. Josh Bell is batting .233 with six home runs, 31 RBIs, and 14 runs. Ultimately, this lineup is 16th in batting average. But the struggles have continued elsewhere, as they are 22nd in on-base percentage, 27th in runs, 30th in home runs, and 28th in slugging percentage.

But the Guardians are confident in their pitching. Significantly, Bieber is amazing. But the Guardians also have the second-best bullpen in baseball. Now, they have a chance to do some damage at home.

The Guardians will cover the spread if their offense can  get hot. Likewise, Bieber must have a quality start.

Final Brewers-Guardians Prediction & Pick

Both pitchers are great. Ultimately, this game could easily be a low-scoring game. But it also might be a game that goes down to the wire. Therefore, expect the Brewers and Guardians to build some drama in this one. The Brewers will cover the spread as this game does not have a winner decided until the very end.

Final Brewers-Guardians Prediction & Pick: Milwaukee Brewers: +1.5 (-170)
