Baseball Betting – Plenty of Scoring expected Wednesday between Brewers and Cardinals
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
The St. Louis Cardinals (62-53) host the Milwaukee Brewers (65-50) in a key NL Central showdown from Busch Stadium Wednesday night. Baseball betting will be big on this contest and you can get the best lines at Bookmaker Sportsbook; the choice for all serious gamblers.
The Brewers lead the Cardinals by three-games to start their three game series and Game 2 of this series showdown at Busch Stadium is Wednesday August 10 at 8:15 ET. This series should generate big baseball betting odds action with the Cardinals installed a small home favorite by the oddsmakers.
The Brewers have been hot and playing great baseball the past two weeks while rewarding their baseball betting backers. Milwaukee is on a 11-1 run entering the St. Louis series and the Brewers took two of three games from the Cardinals August 1-3. However, this series is in St. Louis, and the Brewers have struggled on the road more than expected with a 24-39 record. But Milwaukee has the best division record in the NL Central winning 31 of 49 overall match-ups.
During Milwaukee’s hot recent run, the Brewers were a baseball betting favorite in 10 games and won nine games as a -140 favorite or better. However, Milwaukee will be a small underdog in this contest as lefty Randy Wolf tries to regroup after the Cardinals scored five runs on nine hits against him back on August 3rd. Wolf (8-8 / 3.61 ERA) has nearly identical home and road statistics this season, but can be prone to the long ball with 16 HRs allowed.
Jake Westbrook (9-5 / 4.83 ERA) has by no means pitched as well as his record would indicate; in fact, the veteran right-hander has posted a 6.30 ERA at home with a .298 BAA at Busch Stadium. The Brewers big bats should generate some hits and runs against Westbrook and don’t expect either pitcher to be in the ballgame in the seventh inning as plenty of hits are expected off the starters in this baseball betting contest.
The Brewers have scored 7, 7, 8, 10, 7, 6, 5 and 6 runs their last eight games including 23 runs in three games against the Cardinals. Milwaukee skipper Ron Roenicke is trying to lead the Brewers to a division title and NL Pennant in his first season at the Brew Crew’s helm, and he has the big bats and some solid pitching to carry them through the closing stretch.
While the Brewers are #2 in the NL in home runs (127) and #3 in batting average (.262), the Cardinals lead the NL with a .271 batting average and 552 runs scored. They too have some strong hitters and have hit 117 home runs. With average starting pitching and both bullpens ranking in the lower half of the NL with ERAs over 3.70, this should be a higher-scoring baseball betting game.
Baseball Betting Picks: Expect plenty of hits and scoring chances and play this game ‘over’ the total.
