The Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates meet on Saturday from Miller Park. All MLB odds can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Brewers have finally found their rhythm, but at this point it is too late in the season to really matter. They busted out for 9 runs on 15 hits yesterday in their win over the Pirates. Tonight they will start Marco Estrada on the mound who has won his last two starts. Estrada has allowed 99 hits in 100 innings of work this season.
The Pirates are trying their best to stay alive for the playoffs but did not help their cause last night. They scored three runs on nine hits which was not enough for a pitching staff that struggled all night. Pittsburgh looks to bounce back tonight behind the right arm of AJ Burnett who has been their best pitcher all season. Burnett is pitching to a 3.67 ERA in 157 innings of work.
Milwaukee is 8-1 in their last nine games as a favorite, 7-2 in their last nine games following a win, and are 5-1 in their last six home starts. Pittsburgh is 3-8 in their last 11 games overall, 3-7 in their last 10 games against a right handed starter, and 7-2 in Burnett’s last nine road starts. Pittsburg is 9-48 in their last 57 games in Milwaukee.
Pittsburgh looks to be in a slide right now and we look for Milwaukee to capitalize on that again. Give us Milwaukee as a moneyline favorite at home so read about online sportsbook reviews.
