Miami Marlins at Milwaukee Brewers MLB Odds Analysis

Posted by Mila Anderson on Tuesday,August 18, 2015 4:00, EST in

While there are a bunch of teams fighting it out for the precious playoff spots, others are already looking ahead to next year. There are quite a few teams who are going to have some work to do in the offseason if they hope to be in contention next baseball betting season. The Miami Marlins and Milwaukee Brewers are among that group, and they will get a chance to size each other up when they meet in Milwaukee to close out their 3-game series on Wednesday.

A Quick Look at the Miami Marlins at Milwaukee Brewers MLB Odds Analysis & Game Info

Date/Time: Wednesday, August 19th, 2:10 PM
Venue: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI
TV: FSWI
Radio: 940 AM WINZ, WAQI 710
Opening Line: Milwaukee -139

It may be a season to forget for Milwaukee (51-69) but their fans can at least take some heart from the fact that management pulled off some trades at the deadline that set them up quite nicely for the future. Yes, it is going to take some time for the young prospects they go to come good, but at least the moves show that the Brewers are looking to build a solid foundation. There certainly hasn’t been a lot to cheer about this year, but the tam is sure to be delighted with the 3-game sweep of the Phillies they managed before this series began. They did follow it up with a loss to the Marlins in the opening game, so they will be looking to bounce back and close out this short home stand with a winning record. Wily Peralta (3-7, 4.07 ERA) will be on the mound as he goes in search of back to back wins.

The future looks a little more up in the air for the Miami Marlins (48-70). They also made a number of trades at the deadline, but it was more of an attempt to offload payroll than build for the future. This is a team that now only had a handful of guys signed beyond this season, which means they are likely to be doing a lot of shopping in the offseason. In fairness, this is a team that needed to be blown up and rebuilt, as this season has been nothing short of a disaster. The Marlins are actually having a decent run of form at the moment, having won 5 of their last 7, with the two losses coming against a vastly superior St. Louis Cardinals team. Tom Koehler (8-10, 3.68 ERA) will start, and will be trying to snap a 4-game losing streak.
