The Houston Astros look to continue their interleague dominance as they head into Miller Park to take on the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Houston Astros look for their second win in as many nights against the Milwaukee Brewers as they send Dallas Keuchel to the mound who is out for his second victory of the young MLB season. The Astros got back in the win column yesterday against the Brew Crew after dropping three of their first four games of the season and they are the odds on favourite to win this one with their ace going to the bump to face off against Jimmy Nelson. The Astros have a ton of expectation on them this season and for good reason as they are loaded top to bottom and match up with most teams in the MLB in terms of a 1-9 lineup and with a modest division the Astros are the consensus favourite to be crowned AL West Champions. The Astros are 16-5 in their last 21 interleague games and are 30-13 in their last 43 games when Dallas Keuchel has four days of rest which sets them up well in this spot against an underwhelming Brewers lineup.

The Brewers meanwhile got away with one in the series opener thanks to the Utley Rule but they were dealt a dose of reality yesterday as the Astros evened things up, setting up the rubber match today at Miller Park. The Brewers are 2-3 on the year and will look to get Jimmy Nelson his first win of the season but they don’t fare well against lefties and with one of the best in the league going on Sunday they will be in very tough even if Nelson can keep the Astros lineup in check. Milwaukee is 0-7 in their last seven games against left handed pitching and 0-4 in Nelson’s last four starts which are good trends for them despite playing at home and while they are getting a ton of value here you have to think Keuchel is the way to go here and at less than -150 odds we are jumping on it.
