San Francisco Giants vs Milwaukee Brewers Betting Pick

The Pick: San Francisco Giants +100

This game will be played at American Family Field at 4:10 p.m. on Saturday, May 27, 2023.

Why Bet the San Francisco Giants:

✅ San Francisco has hit a good patch of form winning five of their last six games played.

✅ On the road, the Giants have won four of their last five away from The Bay.

✅ Milwaukee is struggling a bit having lost six of their last nine games overall.

San Francisco Giants Hitting Their Stride

San Francisco has flipped their switch and they are seeing a climb up in the standings. The Giants have won nine of their last 11 games and have not lost a series, including this one against Milwaukee, since May 12th-14th. San Francisco is now third in the NL West and are just 4.5 games back of the first place Dodgers.

Logan Webb is set to make his 11th start of the season and he has been brilliant through the first two months. Webb has posted a 2.91 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 65.0 innings pitched.

The Giants have been balanced at the dish with Thairo Estrada batting a team high .301, Michael Conforto mashing 11 home runs, and J.D. Davis leading the way with 29 RBIs.

The Milwaukee Brewers Are Coming Back to the Pack

Milwaukee is heading in the opposite direction as the Giants and the NL Central is getting tight because of it. Including this series against San Francisco, the Brewers won just two series in the entire month of May. Milwaukee still sits at the top of the NL Central, but every team is within five games of first.

Corbin Burnes will be taking the mound for the 11th time this year and he will look to improve on his slow start. Burnes has posted a 3.97 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 56.2 innings pitched.

Rowdy Tellez is having a nice start to the season as he leads the Brewers with a .259 batting average and 12 home runs. Brian Anderson has knocked in a team leading 28 runs.
