MLB Odds and Picks
- Milwaukee is 40-56 against the run line so far this season.
- Colorado is 43-51 against the run line so far this year.
- The Brewers are 23-19-1 against the run line at their home field.
- The Rockies are 22-20-3 against the run line when playing on the road.
- Milwaukee is 39-33-3 against the run line as a favorite.
The Colorado Rockies (43-53) and Milwaukee Brewers (53-43) prepare to square off in a Monday night affair. The Brewers have dominated this four-game series and enter Monday leading 3-0. They can earn an impressive sweep with a victory in this ball game.
With that being said, it should be noted that the Rockies have covered the run line in two of the first three games. On Friday, Colorado lost 6-5. On Sunday, they dropped a competitive 10-9 ball game.
So the Brewers have been a safe moneyline pick… but a risky run line pick in this series.
The first pitch is scheduled for 8:10 PM EST on Monday, July 25th, at American Family Park in Milwaukee.
Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers Odds
The Brewers are the clear favorites in this contest. They have taken the first three games of the series and are the leaders in the NL Central. Meanwhile, the Rockies sit in fourth place in the NL West.
But as aforementioned, the Rockies feature upset potential. They haven’t exactly been blown out of the water from a competitive standpoint. Rather, the Brewers have simply found ways to win games late.
The over/under will be tough to predict on Monday. On the one hand, neither the Brewers nor Rockies tend to score runs in bunches. If this game was in Colorado, that would be a different story.
But in Milwaukee, they may not score as many runs. However, the Brewers won a high scoring 10-9 game on Sunday. So betting on the over/under may be difficult.
I would lean towards the over since neither pitcher is dominant in this one. Kyle Freeland (4-7. 4.96) and Aaron Ashby (2-7, 4.57) are the scheduled starters for both the Rockies and Brewers.

Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview
Colorado Rockies Preview
The Rockies haven’t been awful this season. They are ten games under .500 and feature upset potential.
According to the stats, they are one of the better offensive teams in baseball. Colorado is second in batting average, fourth in OBP, 10th in slugging percentage, and seventh in runs scored. However, they also play their home games at Coors Field.
This is a completely different lineup away from home. To make matters worse, they have to deal with the Brewers’ elite pitching staff.
The Rockies are currently in the midst of a four-game losing streak. They need to pitch better without question. They have allowed at least six runs in each contest during their recent four-game losing stretch.
Colorado is 28th in team ERA, 28th in WHIP, and dead last in batting average against. They surrender a ton of base runners which leads to plenty of scoring opportunities for opponents.
Kyle Freeland will aim to contain the Brewers lineup on Monday and help the Rockies salvage a Game Four victory.
Milwaukee Brewers Preview
The Brewers have lit up the Rockies pitching staff. Milwaukee hasn’t exactly been a force in terms of scoring runs this season, but they have seen that narrative change during this series.
Overall, they are just 21st in batting average, 13th in OBP, eighth in slugging percentage, and ninth in runs scored. So this is a lineup capable of producing an impressive offense. But they have taken their production to a whole new level against Colorado.
The Brewers still have a strong pitching rotation, but it isn’t as good as it has been in years past. Milwaukee ranks 13th in ERA, 14th in WHIP and eighth in batting average against.
However, they have dealt with a number of injuries, and closer Josh Hader has struggled mightily. If Hader can return to form and the Brewers can return to full health, this pitching staff could become elite once again.
For now, Milwaukee will aim to continue shutting down the Rockies. Aaron Ashby will be tasked with leading Milwaukee to a series sweep at home.
For the Rockies, Tyler Kinley, Helcris Olivarez, Scott Oberg, and Ryan Rolison are all on the 60-day IL. No, those are not big names. However, their injuries affect Colorado’s overall pitching depth.
Meanwhile, pitcher Peter Lambert is on the 10-day IL with right forearm inflammation.
Other than that, this is a fairly healthy Rockies team.
For the Brewers, Freddy Peralta remains on the 60-day IL with a lat strain. The right-hander emerged as a star last season but has battled injuries in 2022. Milwaukee is hoping he can return at some point in August.
Pitchers Justin Topa and Jake Cousins are also on the 60-day IL.
Luis Perdomo, Adrian Houser, and Miguel Sanches are currently on the 15-day IL. Houser stands out as he is an important part of the pitching rotation. He is dealing with a right flexor strain.
Infielder Jace Peterson is also injured with a sprained left elbow. He’s on the 10-day IL.
Colorado Rockies at Milwaukee Brewers Picks and Predictions
The Rockies enter this game with upset potential. They have covered the run line in two of the three games this series and could do the same on Monday.
However, the Brewers are playing good baseball and could be in line for a big offensive performance against Kyle Freeland.
We should be in for an entertaining game, but I like the Brewers as a favorite in this one.
The Pick: Roll with the Milwaukee Brewers -1.5 in this Monday night ball game.
