Baseball Betting at BetAnySports — Niese Needs a Bounceback as Brewers Host Mets

The New York Mets are just six games out of the second wild card spot in the National League, and that is why they intend to be active if they can before the trade deadline. For now, they will settle for winning for the fourth time in five games as they take on the Milwaukee Brewers in baseball betting action that is slated to get underway at 7:10 PM ET at Miller Park.

The Mets are 49-54 and trail the Washington Nationals by 8.5 games in the National League East. The Brewers are 58-46 and three games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. They have been in first place by themselves or tied for the lead since April 5.

For the Brewers, Wily Peralta (11-6, 3.58 ERA) gets the start, and he has been brilliant in his last two outings. The Mets go with Jon Niese (5-5, 3.13 ERA), who has probably been their best starting pitcher this season.

In the baseball betting lines that have been established at BetAnySports on this game, the Brewers are the decisive favorites:

Milwaukee Brewers (Peralta – R) -153
New York Mets (Niese – L) +143

Over 8.5 Runs -110
Under 8.5 Runs -110

It has recently been revealed in the New York Post that the Mets are inquiring with the Colorado Rockies about the availability of two players in particular – outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who is affectionately known as “CarGo,” and the very popular Troy Tulowitzki, the shortstop who has been a legitimate MVP candidate this season. Tulowitzki, however, may actually prefer to be the guy who takes over at shortstop for Derek Jeter with the Yankees next year.

It may interest baseball bettors to know that the Brewers are just 29-25 at home this season. Peralta’s home ERA is 3.88, but he is coming off two efforts that have to be considered outstanding. He blanked the Cardinals over seven innings on July 13, then came back with seven more strong innings against the Cincinnati Reds in his last start. He has allowed one run on six hits in his last 14 frames.

Niese was not very effective in his last outing, as he was making a return from the disabled list. He had gone a third of an inning on July 4, then was shelved with inflammation in his shoulder. Against the Mariners on Monday he had a rough time of it, allowing 13 base runners (eleven hits, two runs) in six innings.

As far as the baseball betting trends that BetAnySports customers may be interested in, the Mets have played six of their last seven games under the total, while the Brewers have played four unders in their last five.

Both of these pitchers did well in the last series between these clubs. On June 12, Niese lasted until two outs in the eighth inning and was removed after allowing just one run in what ended up a 5-1 Milwaukee victory. The day before that, Peralta went 6-1/3 innings and yielded just a single run as the Brewers won 3-1.
