MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks have dropped 10 of their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and they have dropped five straight road games.
The Brewers are 8-2 in their last 10 Tuesday games and 11-2 in their last 13 against NL West opponents. They also have won nine of their last 12 at home.
Can the Brewers stay hot while the Diamondbacks continue to fall? It’s hard to image the Diamondbacks having this losing streak continue much longer, but I just can’t trust them against a surging Milwaukee team that has one of their better starters on the mound. Milwaukee’s pitching has been pretty dialed in as of late, masking their average hitting.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -140
