Under the leadership of Craig Counsell, the Milwaukee Brewers have risen from the ashes. Counsell took over a ruined roster in 2015. Methodically he has nurtured superb young talent into a contender. The Brewers are fighting with the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central lead. For the Atlanta Braves this has also been a surprise year. They were not expected to have much success with baseball betting games. But the rebuild of general manager Alex Anthropoglots is far ahead of schedule. Like Counsell manager Brian Snitker has developed his young talented roster. These upstart contenders meet Saturday night!
