4* MLB SMASH
LA Dodgers vs. Milwaukee,
04/17/2012 20:10 EDT,
Score: 4 - 5
Money Line: -121 Milwaukee
4* MLB SMASH on Brewers -121
Back home, and motivated by 4 consecutive defeats, expect the Brew Crew to take the field with extreme focus this evening.
One thing you don't want to make a habit of is going against the Brewers at home, where they are an impressive 52-22 in their last 74. It is also worth noting that the Brewers are 51-17 in their last 68 games as a favorite, 24-11 in their last 35 games as a favorite of -110 to -150, 43-13 in their last 56 home games vs. a right-handed starter and 19-7 in their last 26 series openers.
Gallardo has been at his best at home, where Milwaukee has won 35 of his last 52 starts. The Brewers are 38-15 in his last 53 starts as a favorite and 25-9 in his last 34 starts when working on 5 days' rest.
The Dodgers are 9-1 but have faced the Padres and Pirates. They take a big step up in competition tonight, and I believe they get beat.
