Analysis: 1* Take Colorado – Milwaukee OVER (#909-910)
The roof will be closed at Miller Park again tonight – there’s no need to worry about the gametime temperatures hovering around the freezing mark. And if we’re not worried about cold weather deflating production, this game has all the makings of another high scoring slugfest in a series that has already seen the first two games fly Over the total!
Colorado’s totals are still somewhat deflated following their anemic level of offensive production for most of the season last year. But last year’s team was an injury riddled mess. This year’s team has a healthy Troy Tulowitzki, a healthy Carlos Gonzalez and a healthy and rejuvenated Todd Helton, all three of whom were essentially non-factors for this team last year.
Rockies manager Walt Weiss, following last night’s eight run outburst: “We really had some good at-bats tonight. We did a little bit of everything out there. I know that if the game is close, our offense will do something…..Tulowitzki looks great. Having him and Carlos in the three and four hole is very nice.” Gonzalez, after homering in each of his first two games: “So far, I feel really good at the plate and it is paying off.”
The Brewers, too, have a high octane lineup poised to beat up mediocre opposing pitchers. Key middle of the order bats Ricky Weeks and Aramis Ramirez are both hitting better than .400 through two games, and former MVP Ryan Braun is just one of six different Brewers to drive in a run already.
Even if the starters excel today, neither bullpen is the slightest bit trustworthy. The Rockies bullpen blew the save opportunity on Monday and took the loss in extra innings. The Brewers bullpen blew the save opportunity on Monday and took the loss yesterday. And neither pen is fresh already, combining for 8.2 innings of work last night following eight innings of work on Monday. Put it all together and you can understand why the sharp money has been pouring in on the Over in early betting action today. Take the Over.
