Milwaukee Brewers Betting           

Freddy Peralta - Milwaukee Brewers vs. Houston Astros BettingThe Brewers kick off this two-game series versus the Astros sporting a 38-28 record that, as aforementioned, ranks them as the top dog in the NL Central. Nevertheless, it’s clear the MLB baseball betting odds are pegging Milwaukee as a slight underdog here. Apparently the odds aren’t all that convinced by Milwaukee’s current 4-game winning streak.

The Crew will be starting RHP Freddy Peralta this Tuesday night. All in all the club had shied away from Peralta as he hadn’t started a game since May 13. That was until last Thursday’s start over the Miami Marlins. And since Peralta held Miami to 4 hits, 1 earned run, not a single walk and an eye-catching 9 Ks. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why Milwaukee is sticking with Peralta. Specifically he is 3-2 this season and enters with a 5.11 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Lorenzo Cain (4 HR, 27 RBI, .2544 BA), Mike Moustakas (20 HR, 43 RBI, .275 BA), and Orlando Arcia (8 HR, 28 RBI, .257 BA).

Houston Astros Betting   

Brad Peacock Milwaukee Brewers vs. Houston Astros bettingThe season has had its up-and-downs for Houston. A 5-8 run in April saw them fall to 18-14 on the year. However, it didn’t take ‘Stros all that long to bounce back seeing as how they currently lead the AL. Nevertheless, Houston will be put to the test tonight as they’re forced to face a red hot Milwaukee team.

To help make this home stand, Houston will be starting RHP Brad Peacock this evening. He enters this matchup with a 5-3 record as well as a 3.20 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Last year’s action saw Peacock fill in the relief slot but he’s now being moved back into a starting role. It’s easy to see why since Peacock has allowed 2 or fewer runs in every one of his last 6 starts.

Players to Watch: Michael Brantley (10 HR, 38 RBI, .317 BA), Yuli Gurriel (4 HR, 29 RBI, .253 BA), and Alex Bregman (18 HR, 44 RBI, .272 BA).
