Betting on the Milwaukee Brewers (+1.5)
The Brewers stopped an 8-game win streak with a 4-1 victory over the Washington Nationals last Sunday. A handful of Milwaukee’s recent losses can be pinned on bad pitching, but Adrian Houser could try to sustain the staff’s form following the Nationals game. Houser is just 3-6 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.40 WHIP this season and he’s also coming off a forgettable performance, allowing 5 earned runs on 7 hots in a 10-0 home loss to the Philadelphia Phillies last week. However, the active Mets hitters only have a collective career batting average of just .033 versus Houser. Milwaukee’s power hitters could also find success against the Mets, who’s been allowing 1.42 homers per nine innings this month – higher than their season number of 1.08.
The Brewers, who are third in the majors with 80 home runs, are 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog.
Betting on the New York Mets (-1.5)
Record: 40-22 Conference
The Mets are also coming off a win, beating the Los Angeles Angels last Sunday, 4-1. That’s a nice way for the Mets to feel good again after an 11-6 loss in the second leg of that 3-game series against the Halos. On the mound for the Mets tonight will be Chris Bassitt, who is eyeing to recover from a poor performance in his most recent start. The 33-year-old Bassitt gave up 6 earned runs on 7 hits in just 3.1 innings of a 13-2 loss to the San Diego Padres on the road on June 9. However, it was not that long ago when he tamed the powerful roster of the Los Angeles Dodgers in a prior start. Bassitt threw for 6.0 innings and allowed just 2 earned runs with 8 strikeouts, albeit in a 6-1 loss at Dodger Stadium on June 4. The anemic bats of the Mets certainly did not help Bassitt in those games, but he could be getting more run support this time around, as New York has averaged 5.0 runs with a .271 batting average in the last 6 outings.
The Mets are 11-3 in their last 14 Tuesday games.
The Mets win, 5-4.
