 My 9* Pitching Mismatch is on the Mil Brewers at 7:05 ET.

The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2021 season having NOT made the postseason in the previous NINE years. The Phillies won their first four games of the current season but their back-to-back wins over the Brewers Monday and Tuesday only got the team back to .500 at 15-15. The "good news" for the Phils is that they play in the NL East, where they are the ONLY team in the division to not own a losing record. The Brewers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons but last night's loss was their THIRD in a row and at 17-13, have fallen a half-game back of the 17-12 StL Cardinals in the NL Central.

The two teams continue their four-game series Wednesday night with Freddy Peralta (3-0, 2.25 ERA) taking the mound for the Brewers and Chase Anderson (1-3, 5.40 ERA) for the Phillies. This marks Peralta's fourth season with Milwaukee and after making 15 appearances but just ONE start for them in 202, he's FIVE straight starts after making a two-inning relief appearance on Opening Day. He owns an excellent 1.00 WHIP to go along with his 2.25 ERA this season plus has held opposing batters to a .146 BAA. He has a 39-11 KW ratio in his five starts with Milwaukee winning FOUR of the five.

Anderson spent time with the Brewers and from 2017-2019 owned a 29-16 record. He's coming off a good start on April 30, going five innings and allowing just one ER in Philly's 2-1 home win over the Mets. However, over his first four starts of 2021, he allowed 12 ERs over a modest 16.2 innings (6.48 ERA), as the Brewers went 0-4 with Anderson taking the loss in three of the games. Pitching edge to Milwaukee in this one, as the Brewers snap their three-game slide and the Phillies fall back under .500.

Good luck...Larry

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
