Milwaukee Brewers 2024 World Series Odds

Milwaukee Brewers MLB Betting

The Milwaukee Brewers are coming off the most successful six years in their history. Milwaukee has five playoff appearances in that span including a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2018 NLCS 4-3. Unfortunately, there is a sense that the Brewers’ era of annual contention is over. Manager Craig Counsell considered the best in the game, has departed for the hated arch-rival Chicago Cubs. Just as devastating is the loss of ace starting pitcher Corbin Burnes. Thus, optimism is low in Brew City and at the future market betting window.

In 2023, the Milwaukee Brewers had a record of 92-70 and finished 1st in the National League Central Division. Offensively, Milwaukee ranked 17th for runs scored, 23rd for batting average, 23rd for OPS, 24th for home runs, and 11th for stolen bases.

Defensively, Milwaukee ranked 1st for earned run average, 2nd for WHIP, 16th for strikeouts, 8th for quality starts, 11th for fewest errors, and 2nd for bullpen ERA. Milwaukee was +1511 on the moneyline and -581 on the run line.

Last season, Milwaukee was a strong value on the moneyline but in the red on the run line. Much of that had to do with the thin margin of Milwaukee’s games. This year the Brewers are being largely avoided by the public on the future market. The loss of Craig Counsell and several key players has scared off the public.

Key offseason acquisitions: 1B Rhys Hoskins, C Gary Sánchez, RHP Jakob Junis, 1B Jake Bauers, SS Joey Ortiz, LHP DL Hall, RHP Joe Ross

Key offseason departures: RHP Corbin Burnes, RHP Brandon Woodruff, 1B Rowdy Tellez, RHP Adrian Houser, 1B/DH Carlos Santana, OF Mark Canha, OF Jesse Winker, 3B Josh Donaldson, CF Tyrone Taylor, LHP Andrew Chafin

It was a transitional winter for the Brewers, who began the offseason by watching longtime manager Craig Counsell leave to manage the Cubs. They promoted bench coach Pat Murphy to replace Counsell at skipper, then moved on from two linchpins of the Counsell era and locked up the guy they believe is their franchise player of the future.

Out are Woodruff (release) and Burnes (trade). In is top prospect Jackson Chourio, signed to a record extension that could keep baseball’s No. 2 overall prospect in Milwaukee through 2033.

The Brewers then brought in some veteran thump (Hoskins, Sánchez) via free agency, proving this is more of a re-tool than a rebuild for the organization that’s won the NL Central two of the past three years.

Trading Burnes a year before he reached free agency may have been the prudent move for an organization that didn’t expect to sign the 2021 NL Cy Young winner long-term. But without him and Woodruff, there are question marks throughout a rotation that for years had been the backbone of the team. And they were far from the only veteran departures, even before you include Counsell, the winningest manager in franchise history.

In short, things seem certain to be more difficult for Milwaukee in a revamped division where at least four teams are expected to contend.

Milwaukee ranks 24th for MLB payroll.
