Brewers at Pirates MLB Wednesday Night Online Wager Tips

September baseball is picking up in excitement as the Milwaukee Brewers visit the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. First pitch is slated for 7:05 PM ET as these two playoff hopefuls fight for the second Wild Card spot in the National League. We like the white-hot Brewers over the Pirates in this one.

Brewers Try to Stay Hot and Gain Ground in Wild Card

Milwaukee is 8-2 in its last 10 games, has won three straight, and has climbed ahead of the Pirates in the NL Wild Card standings by one game. The Brewers are just 2.5 games behind the Cardinals for the second spot in the Wild Card. Milwaukee sends Marco Estrada to the mound tonight to keep the Pirates reeling. Estrada faced the Pirates on September 1, striking out 10 over seven innings of one-run baseball.

Pirates Aim to End Tailspin Against Central Division Rivals

Pittsburgh is just 2-8 in its last 10 games and has fallen mightily in the NL Wild Card standings. The Pirates have gone from being the second Wild Card team to falling 3.5 games out of that spot in just over one month of play. Pittsburgh will send Kyle McPherson to the mound, who is making his first career Major League start in the midst of a pennant race. McPherson replaced James McDonald in the rotation and is listed as the team’s Number 10 prospect by MLB.com.

September baseball doesn’t get any better than it has been this year with the dual Wild Card spots in both leagues creating major playoff races. The top online sportsbook of Sportsinteraction.com has the Brewers at -1.5 (+110) favorites over the Pirates on the road. Place your bet now for the Brewers in this NL Central contest.
