Motown Fisher and Mike Dyce (Fish N’ Dyce) bring you the days marquee matchups from a statistics and wagering perspective which we have asked to provide for us.

Yesterdays Recap: The Yankees and Dodgers were all wanting to watch the NBA finals so someone in New York city made it rain and rain it did. On the upside, game 6 was a pretty historically great game. We’ll have a report for game 7 shortly.
Fish’s Record – 1-1 (+1 Unit = $10)
Dyce’s Record – 1-1
PCG’s 2013 MLB Record – 123-116-11 (+42.45 Units)

Today’s Game:

Milwaukee Brewers 28-41 (L2) -120 @ Houston Astros 27-45 (W1) +110 – Over/Under 7 Runs 7:05 Local CST Start.

Stats and Trends provided by

Mil P Kyle Lohse (2-6, 3.84 ERA) has just given up 5 runs in his last 3 games, but also has given up 3 homeruns in that span. He’s faced Houston 18 times in his career with a 10-8 record.  The Brewers have lost 7 of his last 9 starts.

Hou P Erik Bedard (2-3, 4.82 ERA) has pitched extremely solid his past 7 starts, allowing 2 runs or less in 6 of them and allowing just 2 homeruns in that span. He’s looking for his first win vs Milwaukee in 2 starts.

Motown’s Money Analysis

Brewers have lost 3 of 4 and got pummeled last night in the opener 10-1. They’ve scored just 2 total runs in their last 2. This their 8th straight road game of 9 before going home Friday.

The Astros have won 5 of 6 and have allowed just 15 total runs in that time. They are 9-8 in June and looking like a real ball club despite their record.

The Computer calls this game to the underdog Astros to win again. 2 of the better trends to support the prediction:

*The Brewers are just 6-20 (23.1%, +14.23 units to fade [+45.9% roi]) this season against lefties.
*The Astros are 16-15 +28.2% roi this season, at home vs. sub .500 teams.

I like the way Bedard has been pitching and considering how the Brewers have been performing deeper into the road trip, I think the value is clearly on the Astros here for a medium sized play.

The Play

2 Unit Hou +110 ($20.00 to return $42)

Mike Dyce’s Newbie Thoughts: 

As a baseball fan it is hard to bet for the Houston Astros, no matter what the game is. Players are excited to leave their, they have a payroll next to nothing. It’s hard for the casual better, or even the bar/pub bettor, to take the Astros.

However, the Astros have been on a roll at home. They won the series against the Chicago White Sox 3 games to 1, and beat the Brewers 10-1 yesterday. I don’t think they’ll beat the Brewers that bad again, but the Astros are streaking and I think I can ride with them on this game tonight.

On a side note, if pressed I’d take the Over. In that span I discussed they’ve only been under 7 runs twice. One of those games was a 4-2 loss.
