As we kick things off for the MLB Wild Card Series, we’re taking a look at the first game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the league-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. While most sports bettors forecast the Dodgers to dominate this series, if the Brew Crew has a chance to upset the Dodgers, it will happen in Game 1.
While the Dodgers have a more well-rounded team, the Brewers have an ace-in-the-hole by the name of Devin Williams – their starting pitcher in Game 1. The 26-year old went 4-1 in the abbreviated regular season with an ERA of 0.33 in 22 games and averages over 17 strikeouts per-nine-innings. Williams’ secret weapon is a change-up pitch which he throws more than half the time that’s more than 10mph slower than his fastball. That pitch tends to throw hitters off their game as they expect a fastball and end up swinging too early at a much slower pitch that fades.
That coupled with the fact that the Brewers have top reliever, Josh Hader make for an imposing 1-2 punch in Game 1 while the Dodgers get their bearings. We expect this series to be closer than many people think and are predicting a lot of upsets in this Wild Card round as the madness that 2020 has been will continue.
