2 units on Milwaukee +135 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
2 units on Milwaukee PICK runs -167 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
Despite their one-run loss to Jake Peavy and the Padres yesterday, Milwaukee remains a very hot team as they have won eight of their last nine. They have outscored opponents 51-15 over this nine-game stretch, or 5.7 to 1.7, that is a full four runs a game. The pitching has not only been outstanding, but the bullpen has been absolutely terrific as well. Only one pitcher in one outing over the last nine games has given up any runs. Otherwise the Brewers’ pen has been perfect in the other 16 innings they have worked. The Dodgers are off a four-game sweep of the Phillies, and may have a bit of a mental letdown. With the Brewers winning by big margins we will take the value here and play the Brewers on the road as a nice, sizeable dog.
