In a matter of two weeks, the National League race tightened up like Kim Kardashian in a cat-suit. Those making sports picks will have to make difficult choices the rest of the way for MLB betting. With four teams within three games of each other, baseball handicappers and those students of the MLB odds will have their work cut out for them. Let’s review each team’s upcoming scenarios.
The Brewers have played like many of the revelers hanging around the beer tents at the city’s Summerfest event on the shores of Lake Michigan, in losing 10 of 12 in July.
Milwaukee’s starting pitching which had been a strength, has fallen to ninth in ERA (3.86) and eighth in OPS (.698) in the NL. Marco Estrada has been pulled from the rotation after allowing 27 home runs or one every four innings he’s pitched.
The offense was also lethargic, averaging 2.6 runs a game prior to their 11 run outburst in the last game before the All-Star break.
