Surprising stability is present in the Rockies Brewers Expert Baseball Tips here at HRWager. One of the qualifications for the games we choose is that they have established starting pitching. By the time that late August arrives, many teams start inserting rookies to audition for later years. Even though Colorado and Milwaukee are not making any post season threats in 2016, their starters each have over 100 innings pitched this season. SO let us see who has the momentum in this 7:20PM start on August 22nd.
Milwaukee is back from on the road where it took sustained offensive output on Sunday to avoid an 0-7 trip. Not exactly a great deal of momentum to start with in going 2-8 in their last ten for a overall record of 53-70. So we have Bettis (Col Low 5 ERA) vs Nelson Milw (4’s ERA) facing in this one. Total is at the nine run level with the chalk on the over side. Have to really do your homework with momentum regarding Colorado starters. Half their games are at home and in that bam box of his. That is part of the reason why Bettis still has a job let alone over 140 IP this year. Steam has been present in this game as the Brewers started at -120 and are all the way to +107 now as a result of overnight wagering interest.
Both Teams are in for an Easy Time?!
Thin air should not affect walks nor overly inflate whip but Nelson has six walks and a 1.93 WHIP in his last three. Brewers starter is even worse here with 8 walks, WHIP of 1.88, and an eye popping ERA of 9.42. However with the exception of letting 5 runs in at Texas, Nelson is performing near his expectation in terms of earned run average both at home and away for at least a month and a half. Stable pitcher that lets in three runs per six innings or so. Nelson suffers from being on the road letting in six runs each of his last three starts. At home, he is much better in allowing seven runs in his last three starts. This is why the total has been stable at nine instead of launching upward.
Movement on the visiting Rockies is correct. So is the stagnation of the total. The path to profit still exists in the -1 1/2 RL here. Most times that the Rockies win here is in a romp so if you were going to bet COL ML then just go RL for the +140 or so to your wager. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at HRWager.
