Rockies vs. Brewers Free Pick
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Brewers are whopping -192 money line favorites over the Rockies, who are +176 on the ML. The total for tonight's game is currently sitting at 8.5 runs.
LINE MOVEMENT: The Rockies opened as +170 money line underdogs but their odds have been bet up to +176, while the Brewers' odds have gone from -185 up to -192. Rather surprisingly, the total has moved from 9 down to 8.5 despite both offenses providing plenty of run-scoring potential (not to mention Colorado's brutal pitching staff).
PUBLIC BETTING: Of the current wagers placed on tonight’s game, 68% of the betting public currently favors Brewers. This information is subject to change, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most updated numbers.
PITCHING MATCHUP: The Brewers will send Wily Peralta to the hill to face Coloardo's Christian Friedrich. Peralta is 8-5 on the year with a 3.02 ERA while Friedrich is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA for the banged up Rockies. Colorado enters play just 35-43 on the year and 15-24 on the road, while Milwaukee is 48-32 and 21-17 at home.
MLB FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest MLB trends, the over is 12-2-2 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and 4-1 in the last five meetings in Milwaukee. The over is also 4-1 in Peralta's last five starts overall, 4-0 in his last four starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance and 6-1 in his last seven starts as a home favorite. On the other side, the over is 6-1-1 in the Rockies' last eight road games, 10-2-3 in their last 15 games overall and 4-1-1 in their last six games following a loss. Again, with how good Colorado's offense is, coupled with how bad the pitching staff is, coupled with Miller Park, there should be plenty of runs scored tonight in Milwaukee.
