Brewers vs D’Backs Series Odds: Neither team is sitting on top of many Major League Baseball leaderboards in 2022, but Milwaukee still has a chance to grab a wild card spot in hopes of cashing a long-shot (30-1) World Series odds ticket.
Before we dive deeper into our Brewers vs D’Backs series odds preview, let’s look at some of the trends that might help us make a smarter wager. Milwaukee has lost 10 of their last 13 road games and six of seven against teams with a losing record. Arizona has won five of their last six and is a respectable 34-33 at home after finishing off a 16-12 August.
Upcoming Schedule Kind to Milwaukee’s Playoff Hopes
Right now the Milwaukee Brewers are still on the outside of the playoff race, trailing the San Diego Padres by 2.5 games.
They start a meaningful four-game series tonight in Arizona, starting a run of 12 straight games where they play a team under .500.
Milwaukee hasn’t been kind to bettors this season despite their 68-60 record. Brewers backers have lost -1155 units this season (Based on a $100 wager per game).
Much of that is not being able to win when they’re a big favorite. Despite their 58-43 record as a favorite, they’re still -818 units. As a -130 to -139 road favorite they are 6-4, +46 units in 2022 and 11-6, +217 units over the last two seasons.
Brandon Woodruff gets the start for the Brew Crew. The lefty isn’t high up in any MLB leaders 2022, but Milwaukee is 14-6 this season when the Mississippi native gets the ball.
Diamondbacks Look to Carry Over August Success
Arizona is coming off their best month of the season, hoping the August success will lead to a big September and perhaps a .500 season. Unlike Brewers World Series odds, the Diamondbacks were not something the public rushed to the window to bet on, but they’ve quietly had a better season than most thought they would.
Despite the success, the Diamondbacks were lit up last night by the Philadelphia Phillies, 18-2, giving up 22 hits in the process. Arizona used five pitchers, and one catcher, to get through one of their worst pitching performances of the year.
They’ll send ace, player Merrill Kelly, to the hill in an effort to put last night’s game behind them. Kelly is 5-0 with a 2.20 era in his past 11 starts and has allowed two runs or fewer in eight of those starts. Unfortunately, for Arizona bettors, the Diamondbacks are just 13-13 when Kelly starts despite his 11-5 record.
Early Wagering Shows Public Undecided
To conclude our Brewers vs D’Backs series odds preview, let’s try to set you in the winners’ circle again tonight. We’ve seen some movement in the number, down from Milwaukee -160 to -130. That makes sense considering the joes look at it as a chance to get home plus money with a pitcher who has lost just three decisions this season.
However, these are games that Milwaukee can’t afford to lose. Be confident that Woodruff will go deep into tonight’s game and that the Brewers will get into a Diamondback bullpen that was ineffective last night.
Our official recommendation… Arizona is one of the worst hitting team in the league (.231) and are 22nd in the team era (4.16). Bet the Brewers and the run-line (-1.5 +125) tonight.Follow us on Twitter
