Brewers Decreasing the Gap, But…
The Milwaukee Brewers are doing their best to close the gap on the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central race. However, after a three wins in a row, Milwaukee still finds itself seven games behind as the season finish approaches.
The Brewers have won five out of their last six, including an 8-4 victory over St. Louis Tuesday night. They’re two back in the wild-card race, which seems to be a far more attainable goal at this point.
Can they cash on the MLB betting odds again Wednesday, gaining in both races?
Brewers Turn to Burnes
Milwaukee Brewers has a good chance at a Wednesday win. Ace Corbin Burnes is on the mound. The righthander is 10-6 record with a 2.93 ERA (15th-best in MLB rankings). He’s second in strikeouts this season (214).
The Cardinals have really struggled against him, batting just .209 lifetime (.111 this season). Paul Goldshmidt is 9-for-27, Paul DeJong 5-for-16, but just about everyone else is sitting at or below .176.
Burnes had a couple of shaky outings of late, but was dominant (one run, three hits, 14 strikeouts) and a 2-1 victory against the San Francisco Giants in his last start.
Add in a sparkling 0.43 ERA against the Cardinals in three starts this season (21 innings), so his track record indicates he could be a good option to back if you bet online.
Wainwright Stepping Out For Cardinals
Righty Adam Wainwright has the St. Louis Cardinals’ Wednesday assignment, entering at 10-9 with a 3.33 ERA.
His last two games have been eerily similar. He lasted a total of 10 innings combined (four runs and nine hits in each). That’s not successful.
The last time he pitched against the Brewers, it went well. He lasted nine innings (one run, three hits) It was an extra-inning loss, however.
