How To Bet the Houston vs Milwaukee MLB Odds
There is something about spring that makes baseball fans feel as though their team has a shot at going all the way this year. Every team, regardless of what they did last season, enters the new one with a clean slate, and potentially the chance to make amends for previous failures. Of course, some of those teams are going to prove very quickly that they are just not good enough to compete this season, but others are going to rise up and be dominant right from the off. There are some high expectations for the Houston Astros this season, especially since they made it all the way to the ALDS last season. They have not made a particularly great start to the season, and will be looking to get things back on track quickly when they head to Milwaukee for a 3-game set against the Brewers. The second game of that series is set to go on Saturday night, and you can get your pro baseball lines wagers on for this one at MyBookie.ag.

Why bet on the Houston Astros
If there was going to be one major sticking point for the Astros (1-2) this season, it was going to be their pitching. Scott Kazmir was shipped out last season, and they didn’t really do much to replace him. The starting rotation is certainly not the worst in the league, but the bullpen looks pretty iffy. They certainly did nothing to allay those fears in their opening series against the Yankees, losing 2 of 3, and giving up 27 runs in the process. It is far too early to panic, and the Astros have a number of very solid pieces in their line-up that should help cover some of their flaws. It doesn’t help to start the season with 7 games on the road, and the Astros will be looking for a rebound series versus the Brewers. Doug Fister is set to start, and he went 5-7 with a 4.19 ERA for the Nationals last season.
Why bet on the Milwaukee Brewers
The Brewers (1-2) are in one of the toughest divisions in all of baseballs, and are not expected to compete this season. This is a team that is filled with aging guys and raw prospects, so it’s tough to say what we are going to see from day to day, although you get the idea that this group is going to be fun to watch as they continue to tinker and rebuild. The Brewers opened the season at home to the Giants, and managed to avoid the sweep by winning the final game of the series. The good news is that they looked a little more competitive after getting shelled 12-3 in the season opener. Wily Peralta will be on the mound for the Brewers. He went 5-10 with a 4.72 ERA las season.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
There is no recent history between these two ball clubs, so it’s tough to go on anything but their opening series this season when picking a winner. Call this one a hunch, but I like the Brewers here.
