Padres vs Brewers Betting Pick
This game will be played at American Family Field at 7:40 PM ET on Thursday, June 2, 2022.
Why Bet The Padres:
✅ The Padres will give Sean Manaea a nod, and the 30-year-old left-hander hasn’t impressed in his first season with San Diego. He carries a 2-3 record, 4.02 ERA, and 1.11 WHIP into Thursday’s clash against Milwaukee, which looks like a nice opportunity for a strong performance. The Brewers are way more dangerous when hitting the righties (.243/.318/.431 triple-slash). Against the lefties, the Brewers are slashing only .211/.293/.358. Also, they have a poor .611 OPS and 77 OPS+ against the left-handed starting pitchers.
✅ Adrian Houser will get the starting call for Milwaukee, and the 29-year-old righty tortured the Padres last week, throwing six innings of a one-run ball in a no-decision. Only five days later, Houser was pounded for eight runs (five earned) on nine hits across four innings of work in an 8-3 loss at St. Louis. The Padres should have learned the lesson, while Houser carries a 3-5 record, 3.69 ERA, and 1.38 WHIP. The Brewers are winless in Adrian’s last four starts.
✅ The Brewers own one of the best bullpens in the majors, but over the last ten days, their relievers have recorded a couple of losses to go with a 3.32 ERA, 3.76 FIP, and .303 BABIP. During that stretch, the Padres’ bullpen registered a 2.93 ERA, 3.97 FIP, and .246 BABIP.
San Diego Padres
The Padres are tallying 4.18 runs per game on a mediocre .233/.313/.354 slash line. They are yielding 3.71 runs in a return. San Diego was 30-19 on Wednesday, laying at the second spot in the NL West, three games behind the LA Dodgers. The Padres have dropped five of their previous seven tilts.
The Brewers are allowing 3.84 runs per contest while scoring 4.61 in a return. They own a .234/.311/.409 triple-slash. Milwaukee was topping the NL Central on Wednesday, three games above the 28-21 St. Louis Cardinals. The Brewers have won six of their last nine contests.
