Milwaukee is 15-5 in their last 20 games and 1-5 in their last 6 Monday games. The under is 5-0 in Milwaukee’s last 5 Monday games. Cincinnati is 16-38 in their last 54 games and 1-7 in their last 8 game 1’s of a series. The over is 13-4 in Cincinnati’s last 17 Monday games. Milwaukee is 8-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.

The Reds have been really bad to start this season, but did just win their last series against the Pirates. Milwaukee is playing very well this season, but is coming off of a series loss. It is tough to say how Castillo will be for the Reds since he hasn’t pitched this season, but I would doubt he is going to last very long in this one. The Brewers are clearly the better team here and I like them by 1.5.
