Sports Gambling - Playoff Hopes Brewing in Milwaukee

Sports gambling excitement is back regarding the prospects of the 2009 Milwaukee Brewers and their playoff potential.

Sports gambling disappointment was widespread last year as Milwaukee failed to repeat its online sports gambling success of 2008 when it broke through as a wild card team. The Brewers finished with a disappointing sports gambling record in 2009 of 80-82 after a good start as their pitching staff performance imploded in the stretch drive of the season.

Milwaukee went under the sports gambling total in just 70 out of those games last year.  Handicappers going to a sports gambling site for action on the Brewers may be getting a better value than was the case last year as the lineup is strong and the pitching staff is improved.

Milwaukee’s starting rotation is led by right hander Yovani Gallardo who had a sports gambling record of 13-12 with a solid 3.73 earned run average last year.  Gallardo has a career ERA of 3.57 in three seasons at Milwaukee.

Left hander Randy Wolf arrives from the Los Angeles Dodgers to provide much needed sports gambling depth and value.  Wolf was 11-7 last year for the Dodgers with a 3.23 earned run average, which was his beset season since 2002 when he was with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Another new face in the rotation is left hander Doug Davis, who was with the Arizona Diamondbacks last year where he compiled a sports gambling mark of 9-14 but with a respectable 4.12 earned run average.  Davis was previously with Milwaukee in 2003-2006.

First baseman Prince Fielder is one of the top power hitters in the game.  Last year Fielder hit .299 with 46 home runs and 141 runs batted in with 35 doubles and 110 walks.  Left fielder Ryan Braun led Milwaukee with a .320 average last year along with 39 doubles, 32 home runs, and 114 runs batted in.

The National League Central Division has the St. Louis Cardinals as the favorite and defending champs but if the Redbirds stumble the Brewers could be right there waiting and also contending for a wild card spot.
