Milwaukee Brewers vs. Miami Marlins

Monday, May 20, 2024 – 06:40 PM ET at loanDepot Park

It’s the best of the NL Central against the worst of the NL East when the Brewers and Marlins open a 3-game set in Miami on Monday. Milwaukee is carrying the road chalk with Joe Ross (2-4, 4.61) on the mound, while Miami turns to Ryan Weathers (2-4, 3.81).

Fish Off Consecutive Series Wins

Following a rough April, May has been much better for Ross who has helped the Brewers to wins in 2 of his 3 starts this month. He’ll turn 31 tomorrow, and Ross has enjoyed life on the road this season with a sub-3.00 ERA in 4 assignments.

Weathers has received all of 3 runs of support his last 3 times out, and he didn’t get any while he was on the mound in Pittsburgh last week with 8 innings of shutout baseball. He has a 7+ ERA in 3 home starts, and is facing the Brewers for the first time since his 2021 rookie season.

Underdogs Have Won 6 of Last 9 Meetings

The Brewers edged the Marlins 4-3 in last year’s matchups, 3 of those wins coming in Milwaukee where the ‘under’ has prevailed in 5 of the last 7 meetings. Countering that ‘under’ trend is the fact Miami’s last 6 home games have gone past the marks, but we’ll ignore that for now and play the low side of the total.
