Padres Looking To Pick Up Second Straight Win in Milwaukee
You are going to find plenty of MLB games to bet online for Saturday, including a big matchup in Milwaukee. The Brewers will play host to the San Diego Padres for game three of their weekend series, and both teams have picked up a win.
San Diego has been terrific on the road as they have won 18 of their first 29 games. The Padres are 31-21, and they are making a strong case to be a playoff team this MLB season.
Milwaukee brings an overall record of 33-21 into this game and i has been a tough team to deal with at home. The Brewers are 15-7 at American Family Field, and they are one of two top teams in the Central Division.
The MLB lines on Saturday have the Milwaukee Brewers as the moneyline betting favorites at -125.
Padres Searching for Power
The absence of Fernando Tatis Jr. has been felt by the San Diego Padres all season long, but especially with the offense. San Diego has less than 40 home runs, and it is missing another bat that can do some serious damage.
Manny Machado has been carrying this lineup up to this point as he leads the team with nine home runs and 32 RBIs. Machado belted a three-run homer on Friday night prompting Brewers starter Corbin Burnes to say, “He’s a good hitter so you have to find multiple ways to get him out.”
Rookie MacKenzie Gore will make the start for the Padres and he is 3-1 with a 1.71 ERA to begin the year. If Gore continues to pitch this well then the Padres are going to be a tough team.
Brewers Battling Through Adversity
The Milwaukee Brewers are dealing with a ton of injuries at this point in the season, especially on the pitching staff. That will force Aaron Ashby to make the start on Saturday and he is just 1-3 with a 2.70 ERA.
Milwaukee has been a tough team to figure out on the offensive side of things as they have been incredibly streaky. The Brewers have belted 70 home runs, but they don’t always put together great at-bats.
Rowdy Tellez is one player that has hit well all season as he leads the team with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs.
Padres vs Brewers Head-to-Head

Both of these teams have been popular to back when making MLB picks this season, and this has the potential to be a potential playoff battle. This starting pitching matchup favors the Padres a bit, and that sometimes helps when doing some MLB online betting.
Milwaukee struggled to do much hitting on Friday night, and Gore will be good enough to shut them down again in this game. The Brewers don’t often lose two home games in a row, but they just have too many injuries at this point.
