Major League Baseball Handicapping Call: Astros vs Brewers
Along with bettors around the world, we got robbed on our last Free Pick as the NFL replacement referees gift wrapped a win for the Seattle Seahawks over the Green Bay Packers during Thursday Night Football.
We look to get back on the winning track tonight as the Houston Astros visit the Milwaukee Brewers for MLB action on Friday, September 28, 2012, at 8:10 PM ET from Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Milwaukee Brewers: Clinging to slim Wild Card hopes
Time is running out on Milwaukee as they chase the St. Louis Cardinals for the right to battle the Atlanta Braves in the NL Wild Card playoff game on October 5. Despite the fact that their chances are slim and none, with slim about to leave town, we like Yovani Gallardo on the bump tonight. Milwaukee is 22-10 when Gallardo starts – including 11 straight wins. While having Big G on the hill is not the only reason to back the Brewers (they’re the better hitting team) it’s a good one!
Houston Astros: Left in a spoiler role status
Despite losing double the amount of games they have won during the 2012 MLB season, the Houston Astros have been mildly successful in their late season spoiler role. RHP Edgar Gonzalez (2-1 ERA 3.94) makes his fifth appearance of the season for the ‘Stros as Houston plays out the string on the road. Sitting 43 games back in the NL Central, Houston is the worst team in baseball. We’ve been bolstering our bankroll with them regularly – no sense backing off now.
Milwaukee vs. Houston Sportsbook Review MLB Prediction
We got stung by the Astros as they upended the St. Louis Cardinals the last time we bet against them back on Wednesday night at our Sportsbook Bonus sister website. Once bitten – not shy – is our mantra tonight. We’ll party with the Brew Crew as we back Milwaukee over Houston with the Money Line at the premium Bovada.lv online sports and entertainment wagering website.
