Betting Predictions For Giants Brewers – Giants, Brewers Look To Get On Track Following Slow Starts

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/17/2012 3:25:04 PM

After bringing playoff baseball to their respective fan bases in recent years, the San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers find themselves facing uphill climbs if they are going to reach the postseason this year following sub-.500 starts through the first seven weeks of the season. While the Giants have once again struggled to score runs, the Brewers are once again struggling to stop them, setting the stage for an intriguing showdown to open the sports betting week in the National League.

Despite its struggles overall, San Francisco’s pitching staff ranks fifth in ERA with a 3.31 mark, with their starters fifth in quality starts with 23. The problem is that while they have done a good job keeping opposing offenses off the board, the Giants haven’t been able to score enough on their own to win those games, with an offense that ranks 25th in runs scored. San Francisco could be in trouble in the opener if Madison Bumgarner can’t shake his recent funk, as the 22-year old has given up eight earned runs combined in consecutive losses following a five-game win streak. The Brewers will counter Randy Wolf, and while he did give up six earned in just four innings of work the last time he was on the mound, the veteran’s inconsistencies this season point to a bounce-back game.

With Bumgarner struggling of late, the Giants will feel more comfortable with Matt Cain on the mound for game two of the series, as he gets the start after registering consecutive wins with a combined three earned runs allowed. Despite being one of the better starters for Milwaukee this season with a 3.07 ERA, Shaun Marcum is just 2-1 on the year, and the Brewers lost five-straight games that the 30-year old started before snapping that slide with an 8-2 win over the Chicago Cubs. Don’t expect Cain to give up eight runs in this start, as the Giants even the sportsbook series at one.

One of the biggest surprises for San Francisco this season has been the play of Barry Zito, who at 34-years old has registered a 2.53 ERA and has not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his four starts this season. Zito has given the Giants a chance to win in every game that he has played, and will have a good chance to add another as he gets the call opposite Marco Estrada for the Brewers. Milwaukee has lost each of the last three betting website contests that the former reliever has started, and it could be a case of pushing to hard on a square peg above a round hole on a team that has lacked starting depth.
