MLB Odds: Visiting Brewers Travel to Washington

The Milwaukee Brewers have been one of the biggest surprises of the season so far. With a 53-48 straight up record, they’re sitting second in the National League Central. On Tuesday, they’ll head to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Nationals, one of the World Series favorites. This will be the second of a four-game series.

The Brewers will go with Zach Davies (11-4, 4.76), who took a no-decision in a 3-2 loss at Pittsburgh in his last outing. Davies went seven innings, allowing a run on eight hits with four strikeouts and a walk. This will be his first time facing the Nationals. He’s 5-0 in 10 road starts with a 3.18 ERA.

The Nationals counter with Gio Gonzalez (8-5, 2.83), who lost his last outing by a 7-0 score on the road against the Los Angeles Angels. Gonzalez gave up four runs on five hits over 5.2 innings, striking out three and walking three. Gonzalez is 2-3 in seven starts against the Brewers with an ERA of 4.95. He’s also 1-2 in nine home starts with a 1.95 ERA.

Going into their first meeting of the season, the two had split their last 10 games. Five games have gone over the posted total, with a push.

MLB Odds: Nationals Host Brewers on Tuesday

Tuesday’s marquee MLB matchup comes from the nation’s capital. The Washington Nationals have been running away with the National League East while the Milwaukee Brewers have been a pleasant surprise in the Central.

This game could be all about run support for the pitchers. The Brewers will put out Zach Davies (11-4, 4.76), who is third in the majors in run support, with his offense scoring 5.95 runs when he starts. The Nationals counter with Gio Gonzalez (8-5, 2.83), who is 34th in the majors with 4.80 runs. That could be the difference when the two meet on Tuesday.
