Milwaukee Brewers: mlb FUTURES & BETTING ODDS
MILWAUKEE BREWERS 2021 OUTLOOK
The Brewers have made the playoffs in three-straight seasons, which is the longest streak in franchise history, but they're still searching for that elusive World Series title (and first appearance in nearly 40 years now).
The Brewers have a very talented young core that could end up being the best in team history, and that has to have the fans excited, along with manager Craig Counsell, who is going into his sixth full season as manager and is gaining a reputation to be as smart of a manager as he was a player, going 96-64 in one-run games over the course of his managerial career.
2021 Featured Players
You might not know the names yet, but be on the lookout for Brewers pitchers Brandon Woodruff and Corbin Burnes. Woodruff had a 3.05 ERA with a 11.12 K/9-inning ratio while Burnes had a 2.11 ERA and a K/9 ratio of 13.27. Both will have to prove 2020 wasn't a fluke, but the odds are in their favor. Josh Hader is a fireball closer who can save 40 games, and Devin Williams was the 2020 NL Rookie of the Year based on his "Airbender" pitch—drawing comparisons to Mariano Rivera's famous and deadly cutter.
On offense, Christian Yelich struck out a bit more than the Brewers would've liked last year, but he's still an easy 30-home run, 100-RBI player anchored in the middle of the lineup. Lorenzo Cain and Avasail Garcia are also strong options in the outfield, and Daniel Vogelbach can emerge at first base this season.
Bet on the Milwaukee Brewers! Milwaukee Brewers Odds for 2021
The Brew Crew has a solid core and a great 1-2 combination on the mound. Will that be enough to get Milwaukee to the promised land? The oddsmakers aren't so sure, as the Milwaukee Brewers odds to win the World Series are fairly long at 50/1. A bet on the Milwaukee Brewers to win the National League and reach the World Series for the first time since 1982 will pay out at a strong 30/1 odds, and the Milwaukee Brewers odds to take home the NL Central are a reasonable +375 but still behind St. Louis (+105) and Cincinnati (+333) in the division.
Milwaukee Brewers Logo, Uniform & Stadium History
The Brewers reached the 1982 World Series but lost to St. Louis thanks to future Hall of Famers Paul Molitor and Robin Yount. Milwaukee went 16 years before they made the playoffs again, reaching the postseason in 2008 and '11 under a new crop of stars like Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun, Carlos Gomez, and Corey Hart. Pitching has never been Milwaukee's strong suit, however, but that could change this year with Woodruff and Burnes atop the rotation.
Milwaukee plays their home games at American Family Field, which was known as Miller Park from its opening in 2001 until last season.
The Brewers changed their look last year, going back to the glove and ball logo from the 1970s and 80s. The cap is navy blue with the glove and ball logo on it in red. The home white uniforms have "BREWERS" written across the front in navy blue with yellow trim. The road grays say "MILWAUKEE" across the front in navy blue and yellow trim. There's an alternate home jersey that's a pinstriped look to match the uniforms from a generation ago and a dark blue alternate top as well with "Milwaukee" written in script across the front in yellow.
