After falling to St. Louis in their home-opener 4-8, Milwaukee will look to even things up in game two of this series. Milwaukee will be throwing out Chase Anderson to oppose Jack Flaherty. The Brewers opened up as (-127) money line favorites while the line has dropped to (-117) with 61% of the public backing them.
St. Louis Cardinals
Flaherty will give the Majors another go after a short six-game stint with the Cardinals last year. He didn’t leave a good impression posting a 6.33 ERA and 5.27 FIP.
His 8.48 K/9 rate was good, but he couldn’t get a hold of his command posting a 4.22 BB/9 and a 1.69 HR/9. These numbers are off a small sample size, but if he could correct his command issues he could be a nice low key pitcher for the Cardinals.
St. Louis’ lineup is slashing .254/.320/.449 to start the season while they have hit eight HRs and 19 RBIs. Their line has done well against Anderson slashing .274/.364/.407 in 113 at-bats, while they have two HRs, 9 RBI, 15 BB and 26 SO.
What a gem Anderson was for Milwaukee last year posting a 2.74 ERA and 3.58 FIP. He was able to produce swings-and-misses (8.54 K/9) while he kept the walks (2.61 BB/9) and home runs (0.89 HR/9) to a minimum.
Anderson is a well-balanced pitcher who induces his fair share of ground balls and fly balls while mixing in the strike outs. He was a little fortunate last year posting a .265 BABIP, when he has a career BABIP of .290, so I expect to see his ERA inflate some as the year progresses.
Milwaukee is slashing .268/.315/.418 to start the early season to go with 15 extra-base hits and 21 RBI. This is a talented lineup that can score in bunches, and with a hitter-friendly home park, expect the home runs to flourish.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee -117 & Under 9
Flaherty is a pitcher to keep your eye on, but I can’t blindly back him in this outing. At home last year Anderson posted a 2.52 ERA while opponents slash line was .209/.274/.380. I expect Milwaukee to edge out a victory while both pitching staffs do a good job containing the runs.
It is expected to be in the low thirties.
