The Milwaukee Brewers and the Houston Astros will close out their series from Houston this afternoon. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Astros gave their fans something to cheer about yesterday after getting consecutive wins against the Brewers. They scored 6 runs on 12 hits and all which was plenty for their pitching staff who pitched better than normal. This afternoon the Astros will start Jordan Lyles who is looking to end a personal losing streak. Lyles is pitching to a dreadful 5.69 ERA in 91 innings of work this season.
The Brewers have thrown in the towel as their miserable road record continues. They lost yesterday and will look to Yovani Gallardo who has won his last two starts to get things back on track. Gallardo is pitching to a 3.79 ERA in 140 innings of work this season.
Houston is 20-40 in their last 60 games against the NL Central, 11-41 in their last 52 games overall, and 1-4 in Lyles last five home starts. Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last seven games as a favorite, 6-11 in their last 17 games against a right handed starter, and 8-3 in Gallardo’s last 11 starts. Milwaukee is 20-9 in the last 29 meetings of these two.
Milwaukee has been miserable on the road but we look for them to win with Gallardo on the hill tonight. Give us Milwaukee as a moneyline favorite in this game at online sportsbook usa.
