DBacks-Brewers: Can’t-Miss Online Baseball Betting Matchup
Posted by: Charlie Smith
Wednesday’s online baseball betting action gave way to some very interesting results. The New York Mets melted once again in the 9th inning, proving the franchise’s bullpen is really as bad is it looks. The Cincinnati Reds’ Billy Hamilton showed off his speed by scoring off of a single. And the Minnesota Twins were able to sweep the Baltimore Orioles, picking up their fourth-straight win. Overall, Wednesday’s action was fairly predictable, and that includes Albert Pujols’ 507th career home run.

Players who bet on MLB games can tune into Thursday’s action at midday, when the Seattle Mariners travel to Washington to take on the Nationals. After that contest begins, the league will have 10 other matchups for bettors to wager on. Originally, Major League Baseball had 11 other contests lined up. However, the matchup between the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals has suffered a rain-delay and has been postponed. That was one of the better matchups on deck for Thursday’s action, and in lieu of that pairing bettors can wager on an equally competitive contest between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Diamondbacks are one of the youngest franchises in the MLB and as young franchises usually do, Arizona has been struggling severely as of late. The Diamondbacks have gone three straight online baseball betting seasons without posting a winning record, and five straight without making a postseason appearance. With that kind of track record, Arizona fans came into this season with exceptionally low expectations. However, the Diamondbacks have been performing better than expected.
As things currently stand, Arizona is sitting on a 29-19 that pegs them as the second-winningest team in the entire National League. Additionally, the Diamondbacks are the second best team in the NL West, just two games behind division-leading Colorado. The Rockies own the best record in the NL, and watching these two go back-and-forth this season should prove to be entertaining.
In Game 1 of their series against the Brewers, Arizona will be starting Robbie Ray. Ray is 3-3 on the season, with a 3.91 ERA.
Like the Diamondbacks, success has been rather scarce in the Brewers’ organization recently. Milwaukee has gone five-years without making the playoffs, and two without posting a winning record.
Zach Davies will be getting the start for Milwaukee. Davies is 5-2 on the season with a 5.44 ERA.
