MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 5-2 in their last seven road games. Milwaukee is 1-4 in its last five interleague games.
The Astros are 4-1 in their last five interleague home games. Houston is 4-0 in the last four Peacock starts at home.
Peralta was sharp in his last start, but that came against Miami and the Astros are an entirely different beast. With Peacock usually in good form at home, I'm taking the hosts on what is a shorter line than what I would have expected. Take advantage of this as I don't think Peralta will slow down this offense.
