Houston Astros vs Milwaukee Brewers 5/22/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Houston Astros will go against the Milwaukee Brewers in MLB action in American Family Field, WI, on Monday, May 22, 2023, at 7:40 PM ET.


Although playing the Athletics was very beneficial, the Houston Astros awoke on Sunday with a six-game winning run still going strong.


Houston went 9-1 over their 10-game streak up to the game on Sunday. The Astros welcomed Jose Altuve back to the starting lineup as their offensive attempts to recapture its supremacy from 2022.


After being ninth in 2022, Houston is only ranked 17th in runs scored per game. The squad has one of the lowest home run totals in the league and only ranks 23rd in slugging percentage.


Although the Astros are getting healthier and have an exceptional strikeout percentage, the Astros’ early run production needs to be improved.


Houston has a .380 slugging percentage, was rung up 364 times, and was walked 136 times. They totaled 370 base hits, 191 runs batted in, and a .246 batting average as a team this season.


The Astros hit 77 two-baggers as a team, and 40 balls left the stadium. The Houston Astros are scoring 4.4 runs per game as a team, which places them in the league’s bottom half.


As they were the league leaders in ERA before their game on Sunday, Houston’s pitching was outstanding once more. The starting lineup is vital to that success, and Christian Javier will take the field next for Houston to win.


The Astros won all three of Javier’s outings in May, and each of those starts was also strong. Although he was not as productive this season on the road, his 3.60 road ERA isn’t horrendous.


Javier has a 0.968 WHIP due to his 28th-place ranking among qualified pitchers’ 5.8% walk rate. The Houston bullpen, which has MLB’s second-lowest ERA, is in front of Javier.


  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Houston’s last 11 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 7-0 SU in their last seven matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Houston’s last five games on the road.

Houston Astros vs Milwaukee Brewers  Predictions 5/22/2023


Before Sunday’s game, Milwaukee dropped its previous four contests. They made it possible for the Pirates to retake the lead over them in the NL Central, and the rest of the division closed the deficit to five games.


The club managed just eight runs in those five games, including two straight scoreless contests, making its lackluster offense the main culprit. In terms of runs per game this season, the squad fell to 23rd.


Milwaukee has some power; this season, it ranks 13th in home runs. In addition, the Brewers had an 80% success rate (36/45) in attempts to steal bases before Sunday’s game.


Milwaukee’s offense would improve significantly if they could reduce their strikeouts. At 25.2%, they currently have the 27th-lowest strikeout rate this season.


The Milwaukee Brewers are responsible for a .313 on-base percentage and a .238 batting average for the entire season.


They received 351 base hits and reached base 417 times, placing them sixth in the league. Milwaukee has 179 RBIs and 53 home homers so far this season.


The Brewers rank 23rd in MLB with a 4.16 run average per game and a team slugging percentage of .386. In addition to scoring 187 runs and getting free bases 154 times, they recorded 55 two-baggers.


They might have little work to do in this one since Corbin Burnes is expected to start. Burnes pitched 6.0 innings in his last two home starts, allowing just one run.


Milwaukee wants Corbin Burnes to be their starting pitcher. Therefore, he must perform at his highest level if the Brewers are to turn things around.


  • The Milwaukee Brewers are 2-4 SU in their last six matches.
  • The total went OVER in 13 of Milwaukee’s last 19 games against Houston.
  • The Milwaukee Brewers are 7-3 SU in their previous ten games at home.


Houston Astros vs Milwaukee Brewers. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros.


The Houston Astros recorded 1,202 putouts, 370 assists, and 17 errors for the season. They now rank sixth in professional baseball in fielding percentage (.989), generating 39 double plays.


Out of 3,606 innings played, the Astros turned 68.7% of balls in space into outs, placing them 18th in the majors. 


It’s a fairly even matchup for the starting pitcher. Everything else is in Houston’s favor, particularly given how both teams have been playing recently.


The Astros’ lineup and bullpen are both significantly better. They are also winning games. Only Milwaukee has their ace and home field at this time.


The Milwaukee lineup needs help scoring runs while dealing with what is perhaps baseball’s best pitching staff. The Astros should continue their impressive homestand. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
