Betting baseball excitement is high for Atlanta as they are considered to be the leading threat to the Philadelphia Phillies for baseball wagering supremacy in the National League East Division.
The Milwaukee Brewers will host the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night with a starting time of 8:10 PM ET. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds for this National League showdown so be sure and open your account today for action on a pair of teams favored to contend for the playoffs.
The probable starting pitchers are Mike Minor for Atlanta and Sergio Mitre of Milwaukee.
Atlanta got off to a promising start in the post Bobby Cox era by winning 2 of their first 3 games with the MLB betting odds for new manager Fredi Gonzalez in Washington. Veteran Chipper Jones looked healthy after an injury plagued 2010 as he belted 2 doubles while Brian McCann went 6-13 with 5 runs batted in.
Minor was 3-2 with a 5.98 earned run average last year and split time between Atlanta and the minor leagues as the 23 year old begins his 2nd year in The Show. He replaces Jair Jurrjens who was placed on the 15 day disabled list.
The Brewers got off to a horrible start with the baseball lines as they were swept in 3 games at Cincinnati as they blew a 3 run 9th inning lead on Opening Day and never recovered. Rickey Weeks led off 2 of the 3 games with a home run but the spotty Brewers lineup was ineffective after the opener and the pitching was bad and cause for concern.
Mitre is a right hander that pitched for the Yankees last year. This will be his first start of the season. Mitre had a 3.37 earned run average last year and is expected to be a spot starter and reliever.
Heading into this series the Braves had defeated the Brewers in 6 of their previous 8 matchups with 7 of those 8 games going over the total. Atlanta had won 6 of their last 7 games at Milwaukee with the last 4 meetings between the two teams at Miller Park going over the betting baseball total.
