Baseball betting fans are expecting an improved Cincinnati team while Milwaukee is a question mark against the baseball odds after losing key personnel from last year’s playoff team. The probable baseball betting starters for this one will be right hander Bronson Arroyo for the Reds and left hander Manny Parra for the Brewers.
Arroyo has been effective against the baseball odds versus Milwaukee with a lifetime earned run average of 3.59 and a 7-5 record. He has a mark of 1-0 with a 7.50 earned run average to start the 2009 baseball betting season. Parra has gotten off to a rocky start this baseball betting season as he is 0-1 with a 10.38 earned run average.
This will be Cincinnati’s first road trip this baseball betting season as they opened at home against the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates while losing 3 of their first 5 games. Cincinnati has struggled at the plate as they ranked 23rd to begin the year and has also struggled on the hill with a 25th overall ranking.
Joey Votto got off to a great start for the Reds with a .428 average, .500 on base percentage, .812 slugging percentage and 2 home runs along with 7 runs batted in. Milwaukee got off to a similar start this baseball betting season by losing 3 of their first 5 games and ranking just 24th overall at the plate and 23rd overall on the mound.
The Brewers were one of the top pitching teams in all of baseball betting for 2008 but that is not likely to happen, especially because of losing team most valuable player and workhorse CC Sabathia to the Yankees due to free agency. The team ERA was 5.86 at the start of the baseball betting season.
The Brewers have also suffered from a severe power shortage as nobody hit more than one home run in the first five games. New manager Ken Macha has a lot of worrying to do, from what it looks like so far.
