Brewers vs Diamondbacks betting preview
Brandon Woodruff (5-3, 1.94 ERA): Woodruff gave up five earned runs in five innings against the Colorado Rockies last game but he deserves a break with that game being played at Coors Field. Heading into that one, the righty had allowed two or fewer earned runs in 12 games in a row. He is missing bats at an incredible rate and it won’t take long for him to get back in the win column.
Caleb Smith (2-2, 3.21 ERA): Smith faced this Milwaukee team back on June 6, when he gave up just one earned run in five innings. The lefty struck out eight batters in that game, and he should be pretty confident coming into this one. Smith was excellent his last time on the mound as well, when he threw six shutout innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Betting trend to know
The Brewers are 2-6 in their last eight games. Find more MLB betting trends for Brewers vs. Diamondbacks.
The Brewers are batting just .218 against left-handed pitchers this season, and they’re also missing Lorenzo Cain, who has made a career being an absolute monster against southpaws. This matchup is just an extremely tough one for Milwaukee, which just so happens to be a massive favorite in this game.
The Brewers obviously have a good chance of winning this game, but so do the Diamondbacks — that’s what makes them such an enticing underdog this afternoon.
Woodruff is a legitimate Cy Young candidate this season but some of these Arizona hitters have had their way with Woodruff in the past. Eduardo Escobar is 3 for 5 with an RBI against the righty, and Josh Rojas hit a homer off him in their last matchup.
If those two can come through for the Diamondbacks, that just might be enough in what should be a low-scoring game. And of course, Ketel Marte and David Peralta are always capable of giving Arizona big games, so the two of them are going to be players to watch as well.
PREDICTION: Diamondbacks ML (+172)
This series hasn’t featured a whole lot of scoring, as the two teams combined to score six runs in the series opener and then followed it up with five runs last night.
Now, two very good starting pitchers will be clashing on the mound, and it wouldn’t be surprising if both of them get it going here.
Woodruff has the ability to strike out 10 batters whenever he touches the rubber, and Smith has to like his matchup against a Brewers team that hasn’t been very productive against left-handed pitchers on the year.
PREDICTION: Under 7.5 (-104)
