Los Angeles Dodgers visit Milwaukee Brewers, an interesting game between two teams that have had a good start in the regular season. LA Dodgers expects the game to be tight and with strong defense on both sides. The home team knows that the visitors will have a starting pitcher who has little experience in the MLB and they can use it to their advantage.
The week was light for the Brewers, they won the series against the New York Mets during the week. The first game of the series was a lost by a run, 4-5, while the second game with a more experienced pitcher was won 7-1. The series finished on Thursday getting a last win of 2-1 in a closed and very slow game.
Milwaukee Brewers has 29 wins and 25 losses in the current season, representing a 53.7% win in 54 total games. The Brewers’ average runs at home is 5.52, 3.38 walks, 8.62 hits, 1.38 home runs. Brewers has won 14 of the last 29 home games, a 48% home win with 19 overs and 10 unders. The majority of the winnings for the bettors are in the TOTALS, with $ 800 in OVERS and a 24.7% ROI.
The starting pitcher for the Brewers will be Zach Davies, who is in his third year in the MLB and has always been part of Milwaukee Brewers. Davies’s stats are: 5 wins and 3 losses, 62% win, 5.18 ERA, 57.1 Innings, 71 Hits allowed, 33 allowed runs and 1.64 WHIP. Not bad numbers, he will probably end the season with numbers similar to the previous year in which he had 11 wins and 7 losses.
On Los Angeles Dodgers side, the team is strong, they have 33 wins and 22 losses and they are placed second in NL WEST, just below Colorado Rockies with a similar record. The week for the Dodgers was somewhat complicated, since last Sunday (May 28th) they started a long series of 4 games against St. Louis Cardinals, they won the first 2 games; 5-1 and 9-4. They showed power by being visitors, but the next two games they lost 1-2 and 0-2. The team’s defense was almost perfect, but the batters did not manage to score enough runs to tie or win the game.
Los Angeles Dodgers is scoring an average of 4.27 runs on the road, 4.00 walks, 8.31 hits, 0.81 home runs and 8.81 strikeouts. The last 26 games on the road, Los Angeles Dodgers have won 12 games. They have been suffering to win on the road, since the beginning of the season they did had problems facing the Colorado Rockies and losing the first 2 games of the series in April.
Kenta Maeda will be Los Angeles Dodgers starter, a Japanese pitcher with only 1 year in the MLB. This pitcher’s record for 2016 was 16 wins and 11 losses with 3.48 ERA. During 2017, Maeda had a high performance, this week he won against the Cardinals, his personal record is 4 wins and 2 losses with 66% of win, 5.21 ERA, 48.1 innings, 29 runs allowed and 1.28 WHIP.
The advantage is on the side of the home team, they have better opportunities in the offense, although Kenta Maeda can be a danger for the Brewers hitters.
