The Milwaukee Brewers will play the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of their series at Great American Ball Park on Monday night.
The Milwaukee Brewers are 19-10 this season and have lost two games in a row. Milwaukee is coming off of a series loss against Atlanta, where they lost two of the three games in the series. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 3.25 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a .206 opponent batting average this season. The Brewers offense has scored 138 runs with a .232 batting average and a .308 on base percentage. Rowdy Tellez is batting .258 with seven home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Brewers this season. The projected starter for Milwaukee is Brandon Woodruff, who is 3-1 with a 5.18 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 24.1 innings pitched this season.
The Cincinnati Reds are 5-23 this season and have won two of their last three games. Cincinnati is coming off of a series win against Pittsburgh, where they won two of the three games in the series. The Cincinnati pitching staff has a 6.57 ERA, a 1.64 WHIP, and a .278 opponent batting average. The Reds offense has scored 100 runs with a .204 batting average and a .277 on base percentage this year. Brandon Drury is batting .276 with five home runs and 15 RBI’s for the Reds this season. The projected starter for Cincinnati is Luis Castillo, who is making his first appearance of the season.
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.
