Baseball betting Monday features a National League matchup between one of the hottest teams in sportsbook betting against one that is struggling. Baseball betting fans have been impressed with the Milwaukee Brewers, who are in first place in the National League central division and a surprise sportsbook betting value.
The scheduled probable starters for this baseball betting matchup are right hander Jeff Suppan for Milwaukee and left hander Andrew Miller of the Marlins. Neither has been all that impressive so far this sportsbook betting season.
Suppan has a baseball betting record of 3-4 with a rather high 5.23 earned run average in 10 appearances so far this season. In this last 3 starts he has improved slightly with a 4.60 earned run average. He has a career baseball betting record of 3-3 against Florida with a 3.63 earned run average. Miller has a baseball betting record of 1-2 with a 4.55 earned run average in 7 appearances this season. In this last 3 appearances his earned run average improved to 3.00. He has never faced the Brewers.
Milwaukee is coming off a nice baseball betting sweep of the Cincinnati Reds as they beat them in a three game series at home. The Brewers remain of the most profitable teams in all of baseball betting so far this season. Much of that is attributed to the low expectations that the team had after losing workhorse pitcher CC Sabathia in the off season to the New York Yankees. It is a baseball betting irony that the Brewers pitching staff, which was discounted in the pre season, is ranked 5th overall in the majors even as Suppan has struggled as the most highly paid starter in the rotation. Milwaukee’s offensive production ranks in the middle of the road at 16th. Prince Fielder has clobbered 12 home runs to lead the Brew Crew.
The Florida Marlins got off to a great start this season but have been in a funk since May 1 with a record of 8-20. They rank 19th in hitting and 22nd in pitching.
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
