Baseball Betting on the Nationals vs. Brewers

May 15th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Anyone that has bet on baseball in the past two seasons would be hard pressed to argue that there is no bigger loser in the baseball betting than the Washington Nationals. This team is awful and on July 27th it will have a chance to prove just how bad it is against the visiting the Milwaukee Brewers.

Baseball odds makers can the day off on this game. Trying to set the bet on baseball wagering lines on this matchup is not rocket science. The Brewers are an above average team with one of the most dangerous batting lineups in baseball. The team is also in the thick of a pennant hunt and desperate to win every game.

The Nationals on the other hand are exhibit A in futility for the bet on baseball world.  They have awful pitching, below average activity at the plate and have the worst record in baseball betting (27-66).  The Nats’ incentive is actually to lose this bet on baseball match up as it will increase their chances of getting the number pick in next year’s baseball betting draft -a position that they seem to have already locked up.

The only advantage Washington seems to have in this baseball show down is home field advantage.  But in the July heat on a week night, 10,000 fans in the seats is hardly an advantage.  And with a home record of just 17-31 at home there really is no such thing as a home field advantage in the baseball betting for this team.  Scott Olsen could get the start here or it could be Livan Hernandez who has shown signs of life in his last baseball outing.  Either way, whoever the Nats throw out on the mound will likely be devoured by a powerful Brewers lineup.

The Brewers are a power surge waiting to happen and have some of the best sluggers in baseball.  Prince Fielder is not only the fattest man in the line up but also it’s most powerful with 24 dingdongs and a .316 BA so far in the baseball.  Ryan Braun and Mike Cameron are also sending balls deep with great proficiency (17 and 14 HRs, respectively).

On the mound Trevor Hoffman has been savior in the bullpen the team expected him to be when they signed him in the baseball off season.  The starting pitching has been the weak link for this team but against the popless Nats lineup it shouldn’t be problem.

The Brewers are .500 on the road but after this baseball trip against the Nats and several other NL lightweights they should improve on this mark; starting with this baseball betting win.
