Expectations are not high in Milwaukee this year. Last year they finished in fourth place in the National League Central and 25th overall. They are not expected to do much better this year. Especially with such a top-heavy talent pool in the Central, ruled by the Chicago Cubs, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St Louis Cardinals. The Brewers are one of 8 teams in Major League Baseball to have never won a World Series title. The team’s only World Series appearance came in 1982. The Brewers have been the home for a number of Hall of Famers, including Hank Aaron, Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Don Sutton and Robin Yount.

Milwaukee Brewers Betting
In basketball and football, the league leaders routinely beat the cellar-dwelling teams and win up to 80% of their games throughout the season. Sometimes they win as high as 90%, and they’re often nearly invincible at home.
But in MLB, a bad team will still win 30% or 40% of their games whereas a division leader will win 65-70%. So if a lowly team in last place is playing the talented powerhouse in a 3 game series, the favorites may lose a game, without it being a big statistical upset.
If you’re betting on the Milwaukee Brewers this year, you’re going to have to pick your games carefully. They’re not going to be great, but they can always beat great teams. This year, their lineup will include Scooter Gennett, Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, Chris Carter, Aaron Hill, Ramon Flores, Jonathan Villar and Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
On the mound, the Brew crew will include Matt Garza and hard-throwing, 26-year-old starters Jimmy Nelson and Wily Peralta. But they are not deep, nor intimidating.
They don’t look great, even on paper. And if they’re going to make any noise in that division, they’re going to need a career year and performance from nearly everyone on their roster. They’re also going to need a bit of luck and stay healthy all year. It’s really asking for perfection, just to get a Wild Card. But stranger things have happened.
