This line is very inflated because the Brewers have a vested interest in the outcome as it pertains to their wildcard tie with the falling Mets. It is hard to lay two-to-one odds on a pitcher that has been on the shelf since May 1, in Yovani Gallardo. That means a lot of innings for a pen that has blown 26 saves already this season. The Brewers have been shaky down the stretch with just seven wins in their last 22 games. Zach Duke has underachieved all season, but he has been very solid in three of his last four starts, where he has allowed two runs or less. Duke keeps the Pirates in the game, then it is roll the dice, and at two-to-one odds I'll stand behind the Pirates.
