The Milwaukee Brewers and New York Mets in the midst of a series in which both teams are desperately looking for some sort of momentum.
The Mets are all the way down at fourth place in the NL East at 36-43, and need to start winning with consistency immiadtely if they want to get back in the hunt for a playoff spot. Meanwhile, the Brewers are doing their best to catch the Reds in the NL Central, who lead it by half a game.
The two teams have split the first two games of the series. Let's find out what the oddsmakers think will happen in Game 3.
Brewers vs. Mets odds, run line, and total
Brewers vs. Mets prediction and pick
The Brewers are 6-4 in their last 10 games, but don't let their record fool you. Their offense has been ice cold lately and we, as bettors, should stay away from wagering any of our money on them.
Yes, the Mets have been anywhere from disappointing to downright awful, but let's look at some of Milwaukee's numbers. Over the last 14 days, they rank 27th in OPS at .624 while batting just .199. The Mets, on the other hand, rank inside the top half of the majors in OPS and have a batting average of .237.
Not great numbers, but certainly a lot better than what the Brewers have.
You may hesitate to bet on the Mets when you see that they'll be facing Wade Miley today with his 2.91 ERA, but Miley's ERA may be a little bit fraudulent. He also has a 4.30 FIP (Field Independent Pitching), which usually indicates some regression is coming for a pitcher.
I'll back the Mets as home favorites tonight and fade the Brewers' ice cold bats.
