Cincinnati is 16-35 in their last 51 games as an underdog and 15-39 in their last 54 games. The over is 5-1 in Cincinnati’s last 6 games. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 6-2 in their last 8 home games. The under is 8-3-2 in Milwaukee’s last 13 games. Cincinnati is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings. The under is 8-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings in Milwaukee.

The Cincinnati Reds are the worst team in baseball and are going to have a very long season. The Milwaukee Brewers will be fighting to win the NL Central and should take care of the Reds in this series without issue. Neither pitcher has been super sharp, so I expect a lot of runs. I like the Brewers to win by 1.5 and am also taking the over.
