MLB betting favors the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday as they host the San Diego Padres.
It is the first of a six-game homestand for the Brewers and the first game of a six-game road trip for the Padres. Gamblers who bet on MLB action will be wary about taking San Diego since they struggle on the road.
MLB betting tells us that the teams have split their last 10 meetings in Milwaukee. The Padres will be sending Clayton Richard to the mound on Tuesday. He is one of the players they got from the White Sox in the Jake Peavy trade. Richard is 5-3 on the season with a 4.49 ERA as MLB betting statistics indicate. This is Richard’s second start for the Padres. He got a win in his first outing with San Diego even though he gave up three runs on five hits in just over five innings of work.

In his last start against San Diego he allowed six runs and 10 hits. Looper is 10-5 with a 4.84 ERA this season as MLB betting stats show.
