Pick #1 – Milwaukee Brewers At Los Angeles Dodgers
Two teams struggling to hover around five hundred? That descirbes the Brewers and the Dodgers which will hopefully provide a little extra incentive to break out the bats tonight. Two teams with plenty of power and passionate baseball personalities behind them there has to be some excitement about each teams potential this season. Both teams are struggling as of late as the Dodgers are 4-6 over their last 10 games while the Brewers are a mere 5-5 ball which actually works in our favor as means there are plenty of runs up for grabs in any games these two are intertwined with. The game were picking to try our insight out on tonight is the Milwaukee Brewers (31-36) versus the Los Angeles Dodgers (35-33) who are each trying to get thet winning feeling back as they steadily fluctuate around playing .500 baseball. Starting to look at some of the specific key factors of this particular game we notice that the total has gone OVER in 6 of Milwaukee's last 7 games on the road. Even more appealing is the fact that he total has gone OVER in 8 of Milwaukee's last 12 games when playing on the road against LA Dodgers. Add all of this on to an OVER in 5 of the LA Dodgers's last 7 games when playing Milwaukee and we start to formulate a situation that is hard to pass up. The only game played between these two NL rivals went over easily so we should see no issue with this contest doing the same. The last game between these two teams which was played yesterday was a 8-6 run final so these teams clearly have no problem putting up nice numbers on the scorebaord when ballting each other. One angle of this game that really favors us is the fact that the Dodgers pitcher might be on some what of an unknown limited pitch count hopefully giving plenty of at bats to Brewers againt relievers. These two teams have been playing a highly offensive style of baseball lately and the public consensus seems to confirm this notion as the MLB total lean is a generous 62% on the OVER. The Brewers produce 4.1 runs this year and the Dodgers put up 4.16 runs on average on the year so we are easily flying OVER this total on any given night. The weather at odger Stadium is 75°F,Mostly Sunny, Humidity is 55% , and the Wind is WSW 1 mph so ideal playing conditions which should make for some solid hitting. The total over/under spread for this MLB game opened at 7.5 and has stuck at 7.5 so the money here is not really sending off any signals. A nice final point to this pick is the fact that starting pitchers J. Urias (L) and Z. Davies (R) combine for a 10.07 ERA this year giving us a nice lean towards the OVER. The computer predicted score for this matchup is also 8.3 so lets feel very confident about taking the OVER at 7.5 and feel really good about where the score of this game should end up at.
