The Cincinnati Reds will play the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of their series at American Family Field on Friday night.

The Cincinnati Reds are 42-62 this season and have won four of their last five games. Cincinnati is coming off of a series win against Miami, where they won two out of the three games played in the series. The Cincinnati pitching staff has a 5.01 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a .253 opponent batting average this season. The Reds offense has scored 449 runs with a .240 batting average and a .308 on base percentage. Joey Votto is batting .221 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI’s for the Reds this season. The projected starter for Cincinnati is Robert Dugger, who is 0-0 with a 4.05 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP over 6.2 innings pitched this season.

The Milwaukee Brewers are 57-48 this season and have lost four games in a row. Milwaukee is coming off of a series loss against Pittsburgh, where they lost all three games played in the series.

Cincinnati is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 5-12 in their last 17 Friday games. The under is 4-0 in Cincinnati’s last 4 games. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 6-1 in Milwaukee’s last 7 home games. Cincinnati is 3-12 in these two teams last 15 head to head meetings.

Milwaukee comes into this series after a very weird series against Pittsburgh, where they were swept. Milwaukee will try to stop the bleeding with Eric Lauer on the mound, who has allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his last five starts. For the Reds, Robert Dugger has allowed three runs over 6.2 innings with Cincinnati this season. I like the over in this game as I think Milwaukee will have plenty of scoring chances here.
