Brewers vs Giants Prediction & Pick

The Brewers hope that right-handed pitcher Colin Rea can put this five-game losing streak behind them. Unfortunately, he's been far from consistent this season. Rea is 0-2 with a 4.79 ERA through four starts, giving up a whopping 10 runs over his last 15 innings pitched alone.

The Giants, on the other hand, have been getting much more reliable pitching from Alex Cobb, who has a 2.43 ERA in six appearances. Cobb also tends to pitch well against his upcoming opponent, recording a 0.83 ERA in three previous starts against the Brewers. With his owning a 1.83 ERA at Oracle Park this stadium, more success could be on the way.

Not only do the Giants have the pitching advantage, but momentum is also on their side. Milwaukee looks more demoralized as its losing streak grows, whereas San Francisco is boosted by a three-game winning streak with two of those victories coming against the defending World Series Champions.

Final Score Prediction: Giants: 5 | Brewers: 3

Brewers vs Giants Best Bet

As for tonight's best bet, I like the Giants covering the 1.5-run spread. For starters, the Brewers have lost each of Rea's last two starts by multiple runs. Secondly, each win during San Francisco's three-game winning streak has come by a two-run margin.

With the Brewers losing five straight games by an average of three runs, the Giants are in a great spot to cover the spread.

Bet: Giants -1.5 (+122)
