Brewers vs. Braves Odds
|Time||5:15 p.m. ET|
Game 4 of the Brewers-Braves NLDS matchup will pit Milwaukee left-hander Eric Lauer against Atlanta righty Charlie Morton.
The Braves enter this game as a favorite, with their impressive two-game stretch leaving sportsbooks feeling very comfortable with their chances of closing out this series on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee’s offense has been non-existent over the last two games, with the Brewers literally scoring no runs since their 2-1 Game 1 victory.
Usually, there aren’t silver linings for teams that have been beaten by an aggregate score of 7-2 over the course of a series. But the Brewers are that rare team.
Though Milwaukee has been thoroughly dominated this series, its 2-1 Game 1 win came off of Atlanta’s Charlie Morton.
The Brewers should have a bit more confidence facing off against Morton again, as he gave up a massive 411-foot two-run homer to Rowdy Tellez in Atlanta’s Game 1 loss.
Milwaukee’s Eric Lauer has no postseason pitching experience to speak of, but the 26-year old had a career-best regular season. Lauer finished 2021 with a 7-5 record, 3.19 ERA and 1.14 WHIP.
If Lauer and the Brewers offense can do enough to get Milwaukee on top early, their Josh Hader-led bullpen has the goods to shut the door on Atlanta’s hopes to end this series early.
