The Milwaukee Brewers are still in search of their first World Series championship since breaking into the league as an expansion team in 1970. The closest the club ever got was in 1982 when the Brewers — then playing in the American League — reached the World Series. Despite a valiant effort, pushing the final to a seventh and deciding game, the Brewers fell to the mighty St. Louis Cardinals. Milwaukee had its best season ever that year, posting a 95-67 record and winning the franchise’s first and only pennant.
The Brewers have bounced around since the club was founded, starting in the AL West before moving to the East and then the Central. In 1998, Major League Baseball’s realignment saw the Brewers moved to the National League where the club has competed in the Central Division ever since.
Overall, the Brewers have won an AL Pennant, a NL Central Division title and an AL East crown. The club also clinched a playoff wildcard spot in 2008.
Ryan Braun — the Brewers’ star outfielder — grabbed sole possession of the all-time home run leader. Braun has hit more then 290 home runs and counting. Robin Yount still holds the record for most hits with the Brewers, totalling 3,142 during his time in Milwaukee.

How To Win At Milwaukee Brewers Betting
If the Milwaukee Brewers stand any chance in competing with the powerhouse clubs in the National League, the club needs to find more offense, thereby producing more runs.
The Brewers boast depth in the batting order but are missing that all-star slugger many top contenders possess. During the 2016 season, the Brewers generated 671 total runs — fourth fewest in the National League. The club also finished second last in overall hits with 1,299, just 14 more than the last place San Diego Padres.
Eric Thames — the Brewers’ big slugging first baseman — is the team’s home run machine. Thames led the Brewers in home runs in 2017 after struggling to make it to the Big Leagues.
The Brewers have a strong bullpen and finished fifth in the NL in saves in 2016 with 46.
It’s important to do your research before putting your money down on the Brewers. Make sure the matchup is intriguing enough to place a bet on the club. The Brewers did not have a strong record against the World Series champion Chicago Cubs in 2016, posting a 3-8 record against their division rivals.
They historically play better on home field, which was the case in 2016 when the club finished 41-40 at Miller Park, compared to their road record of 32-49.
