Are the Giants the hottest team in baseball?
San Francisco has ripped off eight of 10 games to get over .500, highlighted by a 15-1 win in Milwaukee on Friday night. Now, the Giants send out Logan Webb to make it three straight over the first place in the NL Central Brewers against Milwaukee ace Corbin Burnes.
The game is lined as near-pick 'em, but is that correct?
Let's dig into the odds and dish out our best bet:
Giants vs. Brewers odds, run line and total
Giants vs. Brewers prediction and pick
The Giants are surging while the Brewers are falling apart after the teams started in the opposite direction through the first two months or so of the season.
Milwaukee is hitting just .209 as a unit over the last 15 days while the Giants are up to .250 after a slow start to the season.
The Brewers also won't get the usual cushion it receives with Burnes on the mound. This is not the same pitcher that won the Cy Young two years ago, his ERA is is touching 4.00 and he is striking out only eight batters per nine innings, the first time since his rookie season he is below double digits and more than two fewer compared to last season.
It'll be tough going for Milwaukee's lineup against Logan Webb, who is on a run of six straight quality starts in which he hasn't allowed more than two earned runs. Against a Brewers lineup that can't get anything going, this is going to be another elite outing from the Giants top arm.
The Brewers are ice cold and the Giants are red hot, don't overthink this one, San Fran makes it three in a row in Milwaukee on Saturday.
