Milwaukee Brewers vs Colorado Rockies 5/4/2023 Analysis, Odds and Free Picks

The Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a rough stretch, having lost their last three games, including two against the Colorado Rockies in a three-game series. They’ll look to avoid the sweep in the final game of the series on Thursday.

Despite their recent struggles, they still have a respectable run differential of +21 for the season.

Taking the mound for the Brewers in Thursday’s game will be left-handed pitcher Wade Miley, who boasts a 3-1 record and an impressive 1.86 ERA this season. In his last outing, Miley gave up just one earned run on seven hits over 6.0 innings of work. Milwaukee is dealing with several injuries, including Brandon Woodruff and Aaron Ashby (shoulder) on the injured list, while Eric Lauer (finger) is expected to start Wednesday’s game against Colorado. The team’s relief pitchers Adrian Houser (groin), Matt Bush (rotator cuff), and Gus Varland (hand) are also on the 15-day IL, while Justin Wilson (elbow) is on the 60-day IL. In addition, 2B Luis Urias (hamstring) and LF Garrett Mitchell (shoulder) are also on the 60-day IL.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Colorado Rockies. The MLB Pick for this contest is Milwaukee -145. The Brewers will be sending a better starter in Wade Miley to prevent a series sweep by controlling the swinging of bats of the Rockies’ hitters on Thursday afternoon. The southpaw starter did not allow more than 3 earned runs in his last five appearances on the mound last April. The prediction: Milwaukee Brewers will win 4-2.
