MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 21-5 in their last 26 games overall. Milwaukee is 19-7 in its last 26 Saturday games.
The Rockies are 2-9 in the last 11 Gonzalez starts. Colorado is 2-6 in the last eight home meetings.
The battle of the two Gonzalez' is on tap here. The Brewers' Gonzalez has been efficient this season, but I don't really trust him at Coors Field against the right-handed power hitters of the Rockies. As for Colorado's Gonzalez, the numbers are weak but he's actually pitched a lot better over the last month or so. With Colorado solid at home and looking to play a spoiler in at least the sense of a division race, I am going to go with the dogs here.
