MLB Betting Trends
The Mets are 1-6 in their last seven games against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams in Milwaukee but the under is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings, including in last night's matchup.
Anderson had a good start in his return from the disabled list and is one of the more talented pitcher's on Saturday's slate despite flying under the radar. The Mets have cooled considerably at the plate and the Brewers have a great matchup offensively versus Vargas, who was on the verge of losing his spot in the rotation before a solid effort against a weak-hitting Marlins club. The Brewers are an elite offense when right and benefit from playing at hitter-friendly Miller Park. They're not cheap but they should keep rolling today.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -150
