The Reds will be on the Road in Milwaukee to face the Brewers for the third and final games of the series. Game two is being played at 8:10 ET Tuesday night.
These two clubs met on Monday and the Reds won handily by a score of 10-2.
This contest should be a good pitching matchup. The Reds are going with Tyler Mahle and the Brewers will counter with Freddy Peralta.
The Reds started off the season in a very sluggish manner. However, they have recently picked things up.
They are one of the hottest teams in baseball at the moment. As a result, they only find themselves four games out of first place in the National League Central.
Before their game two victory of the Brewers, they swept the Rockies in a three game set at Great American Ballpark.
Rookie right hander Vladamir Gutierrez went 6 innings and only allowed two runs on Monday to earn the win.
Tyler Mahle has been impressive so far in his 2021 campaign. In his last four starts, he is 4-0 with a 2.31 ERA.
As a whole, the Reds pitching staff has an inflated ERA, close to 5. This ranks 26th in baseball. This is a bit surprising however because pre-season Ace Luis Castillo has been the exact opposite of an ace pitcher. He has an ERA of 6.47 and only 60 strikeouts.
The Reds feature one of the best offenses in baseball, especially as of late. They rank 4th scoring a tick over 5 runs a game.
Jesse Winker is their hottest hitter. He recently had a three home run game, which brought his season total to 17.
Like the Reds, the Brewers have been playing some very good baseball. They are tied with the Cubs for first place in the National League Central with a record of 38-28.
Before the loss on Monday to the Reds, Milwaukee swept the Pirates in three games over the weekend. They have won 9 out of their last 11 games.
Freddy Peralta has pitched excellent this year. He currently has a 2.25 ERA. He will look to continue that success against the Reds Wednesday.
Corbin Burnes and Brandon Woodruff are two other arms that have had good seasons this year. Milwaukee is 7th with a 3.55 ERA.
The Brewers have been playing much better ever since they acquired shortstop Willy Adames from the Rays.
Milwaukee is toward the bottom of the league scoring 4.08 runs per game.
The Brewers have hit 80 home runs, which is 13th best.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Reds are 2-8 in their last 10 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
- Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series.
- Brewers are 7-1 in their last 8 home games.
- Brewers are 6-1 in their last 7 games vs. a right handed starter.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
Both of these pitchers have performed well this year. This could shape up to be a pitchers duel.
Freddy Peralta is the better pitcher and I like the fact that he is pitching at home. He is going to have to be solid because I do not think this will be a high scoring game.
7.5 is a very low total and I have a hard time taking the under on that number.
I like the Brewers to win and the total to go over 7.5 runs.
