MLB betting should be exciting on Thursday as the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs open up a big four-game series in Chicago.
The teams are fighting to stay in the National League Central race and this is a pivotal series before the All-Star break. MLB bet stats tell us that this has been a lot more of a road team series than you might think.
MLB betting trends point to a few things in this series. The Cubs have won 12 of the last 20 games between the two teams and they are split the last 10 at Milwaukee. The teams usually play exciting games in this MLB betting series at Chicago. Last year in September the Cubs won two of three against the Brewers and two of the games were one-run ball games as MLB betting numbers show.
Milwaukee has been a streaky team this season in MLB betting. When they are playing well they can be a profitable team to follow in MLB betting but they are so inconsistent. The Brewers are actually just about as good on the road as they are at home as MLB bet statistics indicate. That is good news in this MLB betting series since the Brewers are the road team. Milwaukee is just outside the Top 10 in hitting as sports betting stats tell us and below average in pitching. That probably doesn’t bode well for them making the playoffs.
Chicago is not any better than Milwaukee and in some ways they are worse as the online sports betting numbers tell us. The Cubs are strong at home and weak on the road though so they definitely can give Milwaukee trouble. Chicago has a solid pitching staff that has been in the Top 5 in the league as MLB betting stats show. Their hitting is another story as they rank in the bottom third of the league as MLB bet stats indicate.
Wagering on the total has been profitable if you have bet on high scoring games in this MLB betting series. 12 of the last 20 overall and six of the last ten at Chicago have gone over the MLB betting total with two ties.
