RED SOX TEAM TOTAL U5.5 -120 PREDICTION: July 31, 2018
OVER 8 RUNS -110 *BEST BET*
The Brewers face the Dodgers in LA tonight. Both of these teams are gearing up for a post season run. The Brewers added major bats in Mike Moustakas and Jonathan Schoop while the Dodgers have added one of the best players in baseball Manny Machado to their star studded lineup. In tonight’s matchup Walker Beuhler starts for the Dodgers and Wade Miley starts for the Brewers. Both of these pitchers are ticking time bombs. Wade Miley has struggled with control over his career and since his call up but somehow has an ERA just over 2. He will struggle against a very strong Dodgers lineup that ranks 9th in the MLB in runs scored. Walker Buehler has not been good lately for the Dodgers and could struggle against this strong Brewers team. He has allowed 5 runs in 2 of his last 3 starts and could not even escape the first inning in one of those. He has also shown a tendency to run up a very high pitch count and to not be able to pitch deep into games. He has not thrown more than 5.1 innings in a start since May 27th against the Padres. I expect at least one or these teams to have a big game offensively. Backing the over at the low total of 8 runs is the way to go here.
