Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
This is a series between the two best teams in the National League Central. I think it will be very good series. In this one, I feel better backing the Brewers.
The Reds have been better as of late, but I still think the Brewers are the better team. They have also been playing great at their home ballpark.
Tyler Mahle is the better pitcher than Adrian Houser, but I am not so confident he will be really good against the Brewers. I think Milwaukee will do enough against Mahle and get to their bullpen.
I will lay the 120 with the Brewers in this one.
