Money Line: -120 Milwaukee
5* MLB Trap Game of the Week on Brewers -122
The Brewers have lost 6 in a row and have 14 more losses than the Nationals, who have won 5 straight. Yet, the odds makers have Milwaukee laying a little juice here. They want the public on the Nats, and they are getting their wish early. We'll go against the grain as Milwaukee has played well against the Nats at Miller Park, and it puts the better starter on the hill.
Milwaukee is 6-0 at home against Washington since 2010, winning those contests by an average of 3.2 runs. Plus, Gallardo, who has a 3.14 home ERA and a 2.89 ERA over his last 3 starts, is 17-1 on the money line in home games versus NL teams with an on-base percentage of .325 or worse since the beginning of last season.
Washington's Jackson, who has a 4.07 road ERA and a 4.58 ERA over his last 3 starts, is just 2-8 on the money line in road starts this season. Bet the Brew Crew.
