Betting Tip: Brewers favorites to win at odds of -150 with DraftKings Sportsbook
Both the Atlanta Braves (88-73) and Milwaukee Brewers (95-67) have managed to make the postseason in each of their last four years, though the 2021 NLDS is the first-ever postseason meeting between these two teams.
The National League Division Series between these two sides is set to take place on October 8, 2021 at 4:37 p.m. ET with Game 1 at American Family Field. The Brewers emerged winners of the NL Central crown at 95-67 and boast of one of the most dominant rotations in all of baseball. On the other hand, the Braves powered their way to their 4th straight NL East Title, managing to finish with a record of 88-73.
The upcoming match is expected to be a quality matchup between the quality of Brewers’ starting pitching versus the Braves’ powerful offense. Charlie Morton is expected to start Game 1 for Atlanta, while Burnes Corbin will get the start for the Brewers. Below is a breakdown of the odds for this upcoming NLDS series matchup, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
DraftKings is one of the best bookmaker for wagering on baseball. Based on the upcoming matchup series that will see Brewers facing off with the Braves, DraftingKings prices Milwaukee Brewers at odds of -150 and Atlanta Braves at +250.
If Atlanta manage to get a good starting pitching from Ian Anderson, Morton, and Max Fried to the match Brewers’ rotation of players such as Freddy Peralta, Burnes, and Brandon Woodruff, then there’s a high chance that this series will go the full 5 games.
But coming into this series, the Braves are highly capable of putting up a big inning with the likes of star players such as Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman, Jorge Soler, and Adam Duvall. The Braves did end their previous season averaging 4.91 runs per game and managing to hit 1.48 home runs per match. However, Atlanta have the tendency to rack up the strikeouts, something that could work out in the Brewers’ favor.
But again, on the other end of the spectrum, you have the Brewers, who have the capability of scoring some runs though they aren’t so depended on the long ball. The Brewers are averaging 4.65 runs per game, but are just like the Braves in that their attack will experience a period of struggles.
But many believe that the series will eventually come down to the bullpens and as things currently stand, many believe that the Brewers will come out victorious in their upcoming match against the Braves. As a bettor, you may want to pick the Brewers at odds of -150 at DraftKings Sportsbook. They have the upper hand against their rivals heading to this game.
