It's a gamble. I'm gambling on the idea that Chase Anderson will pitch his utmost best possible in this situation. Chase wants back in the rotation, and this is his opportunity.   I also didn't see Jeffress get beat up yet and he's available for relief. And Junior Guerra continues to pitch well out of the pen. Are there faulty arms in the pen, yes. Will Counsell call on somebody not up to the task, possibly.  But, the Brewers want to show they can at least be equal if not better than the team that knocked them out last year. I guess, if there was ever a case for motivation, this might be it.  I mean, one can hardly complain with home field advantage and slight plus money.  Good luck.

Chase Anderson's starting debut for the season is today. It sort of comes at the expense of Freddy Peralta's slight injury. But who's kidding who, Peralta wasn't pitching that well. I agree with Counsell here, that Chase Anderson gives the Brewers their best chance to win. Chase fell off the radar last season and wasn't even invited to either post season series. But Chase pitched the second most amount of innings last season behind Chacin. So, that's got to amount for something. This means Chase Anderson has experience as a  starter and he has seen some  success. This is  clutch for the Brewers and  clutch importance for Chase Anderson.  The Brewer bats should find a way back into being prominent as well. I don't think you can hold them down for long. As far as bullpen help, well , Junior Guerra and Jeffress are available.

Zach Davies is a potential Cy Young award candidate and is on the mound today. The Brewers routed Urias in LA and should find no problems doing it again in Milwaukee.  Cain, Yelich, and Grandall all batting over .300 and starting today. The mentality of "we are better than last year's National League representatives" will continue today.

Hudson is pitching well in his last two starts and Peralta isn't.  The Cardinals are winning games and the Brewers aren't (2-4 on road trip). The last two games it became evident Cain and Yelich lost some of their hitting stride going hitless. I think the Cardinals are out for revenge here and they are known historically for winning the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Grandall knows the Dodgers pitching and is showing results. I think the sweep happens.  The Brewers want to serve notice to the Dodgers that they are not going to be representing the National League in the world series this year.  Stripling takes the mound for the Dodgers and hasn't allowed a run against the Brewers in 5 total past innings. I don't think that's a big enough sample size to say the Brewers are worried about facing Stripling. The Dodgers are in the middle of a losing streak and I don't see any reason why that streak should stop today. Chacin takes the mound today for the Brewers and has pitched medicre so far this year. I get the feeling Chacin will be ready for this one. And I think the Brewers stumbled upon their new closer in Junior Guerra. My prediction is that Junior Guerra will be the #1 closer for the Brewers .  He shut down the Dodgers in the 8th and 9th yesterday.  I do think Hadr will get closing opportunities as well, but it just seems like Guerra has performed the best with Cory Kneble out of the picture now. And , not forgetting about Jeffress, but he is slower and just gave up homeruns in his recent minor league outings. I don't think Jeffress gets that job. I would love to see Guerra get the ball in the 9th today. It probably won't happen, but it would definately show some formation of the Brewer bullpen.

Just like Grandall said yesterday, "The Dodgers aren't themselves right now." One piece of evidence for that is that the Dodgers will be starting someone from the bullpen today due to attrition. Rui went down with a groin injury.  Zach Davies is pitching fairly decently this year, so I'd expect another good performance.  Did anyone notice a little uptick with Jesus Aguillar yesterday? I think Ferguson is the kind of pitcher Aguillar will maul. Let's watch and see. Last year's Dodgers, I'd be thinking bounce back game here. But, this isn't last year.

Brewers wan't revenge whether they publicly say so or not. The Dodgers took out the Brewers in 7 games last year in the national league championship series.  The Brewers had the day off yesterday and should be rested for this. Urias is the starter for the Dodgers but looked bad in his last outing. He's already been notified he's going back to the bullpen. Corbin Burnes on the other hand, has been bombed by homeruns in Milwaukee. That's not good but Corbin actually has the talent to turn it around. Corbin does have 18 strikeouts in 10 innnings. Now, let's just see if some of those homers end up being long fly outs. Both bullpens have been getting tagged pretty good, so neither one can really say it has an advantage there. However, Hadr, is ready and available.  So, Hadr could shut down the 8th and 9th if need be.

I can't see Cole Hamels being successful where Quintana wasn't. Hader is rested as well.  Corbin Burnes has the stuff, let's hope he can keep the balls  from flying out of the park.

ty, I noticed Shaw got ditched in favor of Moustakis to play 3rd base.  It's Woodruff that should get nailed. We'll see.

Do you see what's happening? Dakota Hudson, the young righty is going to get a landslide of left handed bats. If anything take the Brewers -1.5 for +145. Brewers in a romp here.

Correct.  The Patriots will get carved up and lose 45- 17. The Chiefs had no defense and would've won if they won the overtime coin toss. The Patriots allowed 37 points in the 2nd half to the Chiefs. Brady through 3 interceptions in the second half. Belichik, like Landry , will never win another superbowl.  The talent is superior in most positions for the Rams over the Patriots.  Not sure what anyone sees with the Patriots.

NFL Betting / RAMS+120. / View Post

I can see this as being most likely a winner. However, wouldn't it be nice to have Rams +3.5 (-155) .  However , for a typical $1000 bet, you'd make almost double with Rams +120. You'd make $1200 where as taking Rams +3.5(-155) you'd only take back $645.16.    I do think the Rams are much better as the Patriots lost 5 times away from New England and this superbowl is away from New England. It's just one of those what if Brady keeps it close until the end situations.  But the Rams have the better field goal kicker by far and should win the battle.

The ending line will shock some. Rams +1.5.  There are a ton of people waiting to slam the Rams right now because they're  waiting for Rams +3 or Rams +3.5.  Those people that are waiting will still take the Rams at +2.5. That flood of bets will move the line in opposite direction of what is expected.

Yea, it might go over. When it looks like it'll go under, that's when the NFL surprises you with an over. Watch the Titans have a break out night.
