I’m siding with the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday over the Houston Astros in Game 2 of this NL Central series. After losing 3-8 last night, which was their third loss in four games, the Brewers have plenty of reason to be motivated heading into this one.
Milwaukee has a huge edge on the mound with Shaun Marcum over J.A. Happ. Marcum is 2-1 with a 3.07 ERA and 1.159 WHIP in seven starts this season. Happ is 2-3 with a 5.72 ERA and 1.551 WHIP in seven starts this year for the Astros.
Marcum is 2-0 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.080 WHIP in four career starts against Houston. Happ is 2-2 with a 5.70 ERA and 1.733 WHIP in six career starts against Milwaukee.
The Brewers are 59-27 in their last 86 games as a favorite. Milwaukee is 47-17 in their last 64 vs. a team with a losing record. The Brewers are 7-2 in Marcum’s last 9 starts as a road favorite of -110 to -150. The Astros are 10-30 in Happ’s last 40 starts overall. Bet the Brewers Thursday.
