Brewers on a roll vs. Colorado
With the two wins this weekend, the Brewers have now won four straight meetings with the Rockies, dating back to last year. Milwaukee is now 23-16 overall and 13-7 on the road. The Brewers are averaging just 3.92 runs per game this season while allowing 3.90 per contest as well.
Chase Anderson takes the mound for the Brewers today. He is 3-3 through eight starts with a 3.97 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. Anderson has pitched 45.1 innings and has 30 strikeouts with 16 walks.
Rockies on a skid
The Rockies have now lost three straight following the two losses to the Brewers this weekend. Colorado is now 21-18 overall and 6-10 at home. The Rockies are scoring 4.05 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.56 per contest.
Kyle Freeland starts for the Rockies tonight. He is 2-4 through seven starts with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He has pitched 41 innings this season and has 38 strikeouts with 13 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have now won five straight road games and seven straight against NL West opponents. They also have won six of Anderson’s last seven road starts.
The Rockies have lost six of Freeland’s last seven home starts and four of their last five games following a loss.
The Brewers have found ways to win the last two nights and I think they will do that again tonight. The pitching matchup is relatively equal, but the trends are backing Milwaukee right now. Their bullpen is more reliable and Colorado has been struggling at home this season.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +120
