Padres Trying To End Road Slump

The Padres haven’t fared well away from Petco Park this season and came into this series on a six-game road losing streak. Even though the team has already been eliminated from playoff contention, they will be trying to kill two birds with one tstone of Tuesday with a win over the Brewers, which will snap their road losing streak and keep the Brewers ouof the second Wildcard playoff spot.

San Diego hasn’t played well offensively. The team’s .242 batting average is 25th in the league. Their .312 on-base percentage is 23rd, as is their .420 slugging percentage. The 654 runs they have scored are 25th in the league.

Eric Hosmer leads the team with a .277 batting average and 94 RBI, while Hunter Renfroe leads the team with 31 home runs.

San Diego’s pitching also hasn’t been very good. Opponents have a .255 batting average against the Padres, which is 18th in the league. Their 4.62 ERA is also 18th, while their46 quality starts are 24th in the league.

In his last start, Paddack gave up three hits and zero earned runs in six innings, leading to a 4-0 win over the Chicago Cubs. He has not faced the Brewers during his rookie campaign but has given up only one run in his last three starts.

Brewers Trying To Move In to Second Place In NL Wildcard Standings

The Brewers have been on a roll over the last two weeks and have won nine of their last 10 games, which has allowed them to move into third place in the NL Wildcard standings, one game behind the Chicago Cubs. They will try to pick up their 10th win in their last 11 games and move into second place in the Wildcard standings with a win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Milwaukee has been inconsistent offensively. The team’s .248 batting average is 18th in the league. Their .329 on-base percentage is ninth, while their .439 slugging percentage is 12th in the league. The 701 runs they have scored are 20th in the league.

Christian Yelich leads the team with a .329 batting average, 44 home runs, and 97 RBI. However, the reigning NL MVP suffered a season-ending injury last week. The team will need other players to continue stepping up to fill the void he left on offense.

Milwaukee’s pitching has been average this year. Opponents have a .250 batting average against the Brewers, which is 12th in the league. Their 4.59 ERA is 17th, while their 33 quality starts are 27th in the league.

In his last start, Gonzalez gave up seven hits and two earned runs in four innings, leading to a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins. He is 2-1 with a 2.88 ERA in his last four starts against the Padres.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Brewers are playing very well at the moment, even without Yelich in the lineup, winning nine of their last 10 games, while the Padres have struggled on the road and have lost their last six games against teams with winning records. With the Brewers needing a win to keep up in the playoff race, and Gonzalez having a 2-1 record with a 2.88 ERA in his last four starts against the Padres, expect the Brewers to win comfortably.

Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Padres have played under the total in four of their last five games against teams with winning records, while the Brewers have played under the total in nine of their last 12 home games. The two teams have played under the total in two of their three meetings this season and with Gonzalez and Paddack giving up four combined runs in their last three starts, don’t expect them to score a lot of runs in this game.

Prediction: Under
