The Brewers enter tonight’s matchup sporting an 8-2 record that pegs them as the best team in the NL Central. Coming off their 3 game series against the Chicago Cubs that saw them go 2-1, the Brewers will be vying for an even more lopsided series against the Angels. Seeing as how the Angels struggled out of the gate, it comes as no surprise to see tonight’s online MLB betting odds favor Milwaukee here. However, the favoritism isn’t as large as one would expect. All in all this makes taking Milwaukee straight up this evening quite alluring.
Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Milwaukee has a substantial edge here. After all, they rank 5th in runs and 7th in both batting average and on base percentage. Comparatively the Angels rank 24th in runs, 25th in batting average and 21st in on base percentage. Lastly, the Brewers will be sticking with Jhoulys Chacin this evening. Chacin is 2-0 this season with a 4.22 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP.

Los Angeles Angels
The Angels fly into this evening’s contest sporting a 4-6 that ranks them 5th overall in the AL West. Although they had a rough start to the season, Los Angeles enter tonight’s matchup riding a 3 game winning streak over the Rangers. So will the Angels be able to extend that win streak over the Brewers at home tonight? If Los Angeles is to get the upset tonight, it will have to come off the back of their pitching.
This is because they have a slight advantage over Milwaukee pitching wise. At the present time Los Angeles ranks 13th in ERA and 10th in team WHIP. On the other hand, the Brewers rank 21st in ERA and 14th in WHIP. Correspondingly, Trevor Cahill will be the main in charge of getting this win for Los Angeles. Cahil is 0-1 on the year with a 3.75 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP.
