3-unit Play #956 Milwaukee Brewers over Pittsburgh Pirates (2:10pm EST) The Milwaukee Brewers are the hottest team in baseball right now, reeling off eight straight victories en route to a 9-2 record. They also hold the best run differential in the sport at +25 runs. But still, they aren't getting enough respect by the betting public. Milwaukee is only a modest favorite in their home ballpark, where they've played very well over the last several years. Kyle Lohse goes for the Brew Crew today, and he might be part of the reason why this line is suppressed. Lohse comes into today off of two mediocre starts to begin the season against the Phillies and Braves. But one thing is for sure with Lohse, you pretty much know what you're going to get from him. He's a 35-year old veteran that is well-prepared for each start and rarely pitches so poorly that his team doesn't have a chance to win. His first two starts weren't great, but he only gave up three runs in each and came up with the win in his last one. He'll face a Pirates team that I think is going to have a hard time repeating what they accomplished last year. The Buccos won a ton of close games last season and stayed relatively healthy for the entire season. The rest of the NL will be ready for the Pirates this year and it's going to be tough for them to make the playoffs again. With the way the Brewers are playing right now they are the right side here.
