It has not been a good season for the Milwaukee Brewers vs. baseball odds at Internet gambling companies but the team did get some good news recently as Corey Hart agreed to a three-year contract extension.
The Brewers have been a team to avoid vs. the online gambling odds for the most part this season but Hart is having a very good year.
Internet gambling companies list the Brewers as underdogs most of the time in baseball odds. Milwaukee is well behind St. Louis and Cincinnati in the National League Central division. The Brewers have a decent offense that is 11th in the league but they have not gotten much pitching as they are 26th in the league.
One player that is doing well for Milwaukee is Hart. He is hitting .288 with 23 home runs and 72 RBIs this season. He made the All-Star game and was in the home run hitting contest. The Brewers locked him up for the next three seasons at a cost of $26.5 million. Hart’s 23 home runs are one shy of his career high of 24 which he hit in 2007. He is not far behind his career high in RBIs of 91 which he set two years ago. Hart is hitting .275 in his career with 90 homers and 332 RBIs.
Milwaukee was expected to be a better team this season but they have gotten very little pitching. The offense has been good enough to win most of the time but the team ERA has been poor. Milwaukee averages 4.6 runs per game but they give up almost five runs per game. The Brewers are third in the league in home runs but too often it doesn’t matter how many they hit because the starting pitchers give up just as many.
The Brewers are 10 games below the .500 mark and that is a disappointment since they were considered to at least be a team that could put pressure on St. Louis in the division. That role has gone to Cincinnati though as the Reds are the surprise team in the division, while the Brewers and Cubs are the disappointments. The Brewers will still be a team that makes an impact in online gambling odds this season though since they will play both Cincinnati and St. Louis down the stretch.
