Milwaukee’s Scorching Offense Looks to Stay Hot in Atlanta

Avisail Garcia's Brewers are favored in the Milwaukee vs Atlanta odds for July 31.

The Milwaukee Brewers are 4-0 over their last four games including a 9-5 win against the Atlanta Braves on Friday. The Brewers will look to keep things rolling against the Braves in the second game of their three-game series this Saturday night in Atlanta.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Atlanta Braves
  • Date/Time: July 31, 7:20 p.m. ET
  • Stadium: Truist Park
  • TV Coverage: BSSE
  • Opening Odds: Brewers -151 | O/U 8.5 runs (Line History)
  • Brewers vs. Braves (Matchup Report)

Opening Odds Analysis

The Brewers opened as -151 road favorites in this matchup and the line has remained steady at Milwaukee -150. The Braves are going off as +130 underdogs and the total has moved up to nine runs since opening at 8.5 runs. The OVER is 4-2 in the last six games between Atlanta and Milwaukee.

Starting Pitchers Analysis

Brandon Woodruff pitched well last Sunday against the Chicago White Sox as he allowed five hits and three earned runs with nine strikeouts across seven innings. But despite the strong effort, Woodruff took the loss as Milwaukee scored only one run in the 3-1 defeat. Woodruff enters the weekend with an unlucky 7-5 record to go along with his elite 2.14 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 146 strikeouts in 126 innings pitched.

Kyle Muller is enjoying a solid rookie campaign through his first six appearances with a 2.55 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP across 24.2 innings pitched. Muller earned the second win of his career on Monday after he pitched five shutout innings in Atlanta’s 2-0 victory over the New York Mets. The 23-year-old has struggled at home this season with a 5.06 ERA in two starts and one bullpen appearance.

Milwaukee News & Notes

Milwaukee’s trade deadline acquisition Eduardo Escobar fit right in on Friday night as the third baseman hit a home run, drew two walks and scored two runs in his Brewers debut. The Brew Crew have been on an offensive tear over their last four games averaging 9.3 runs per game, outscoring the Pittsburgh Pirates 28-3 in a three-game sweep this week.

With their acquisitions of Escobar to help the offense and of Daniel Norris and John Curtiss to bolster the bullpen, the Brewers are in excellent position to finish the regular season strong. Milwaukee currently holds a seven-game lead over the Cincinnati Reds for the top spot in the National League Central with a record of 62-42. The Brewers are 9-3 over their last 12 games.

Atlanta News & Notes

With Ronald Acuna Jr. out for the rest of the season and a sub-par 51-53 record on the season, the Braves could have remained quiet or even have been sellers at the trade deadline. Instead, Atlanta revamped its outfield with trades to bring in Jorge Soler, Eddie Rosario and Adam Duvall. Rosario is currently on the injured list with an abdominal injury, but Soler should be ready to join the team on Saturday.

Atlanta is 9-9 over its last 18 games and has alternated wins and losses in each of its last 14 games. The Braves had spent each of their last nine games on the road before Friday night’s loss at home; Atlanta is just 2-4 over its last six home games.
