The Colorado Rockies will host the Milwaukee Brewers for game two of their three-game set this Wednesday from Coors Field. Colorado snuck away with a one-run, underdog win in game one, 3-2.

Brewers Betting Preview 

Milwaukee moved to 18-11 after falling to Colorado. The Brewers have now dropped back-to-back games after stalling against the Rockies yesterday, and they’ll look to bounce back Wednesday evening. The Milwaukee offense is 4.83 scoring runs per game, while batting .256, with a .333 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.07 ERA, with a 1.35 WHIP. William Contreras recorded an RBI double in game one, and he leads the Brewers in batting at .293. Rowdy Tellez has produced a run in four of the last five games, and he leads the team with 21 RBI. 

Eric Lauer (3-2, 5.19 ERA, 23 Ks) will take the mound for Milwaukee. The sixth-year left hander had a tough time with Detroit at home last week, lasting just three innings and allowing four runs to take his second loss of the season. Prior to that start, Lauer delivered twice on the road, with an impressive 7.2-inning outing in Seattle being one of the longest of his career.  

Rockies Betting Preview

Colorado moved to 10-20 following the win over Milwaukee. The Rockies stole game one with some late heroics, and they’ll look double down on the Brew Crew here. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .257, with a  .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.34 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Elias Diaz provided clutch hitting yesterday, homering early and knocking in the game-winning run in the eighth to bring his team-lead in BA to .321. C.J. Cron leads Colorado in RBI (16) after a big game in the series finale versus Arizona.

Kyle Freeland (2-3, 4.32 ERA, 21 Ks) will get the ball for Colorado. The seventh-year pitcher delivered another quality start last week at home versus Arizona despite taking a third straight losing decision. Freeland has been able to eat innings reliably, but he’s cleared five strikeouts in only three of his six starts. 

Milwaukee vs Colorado Trends

Milwaukee is 15-14 ATS this year, with a 12-16-1 over/under record. Colorado is 11-19 against the spread this season, with a 13-17 over/under record.

Corey's Free Pick

Colorado comes in with a rare pitching advantage, but after stealing game one at home, I think Milwaukee storms back in game two. The Brewers have been one of the best teams at the plate this season, and after just scoring in one inning last night, you can bet they come out stronger here. Back the Brew Crew at Coors this Wednesday evening.
