Both of these teams are streaky and both are playing well right now. Cincinnati needs this series to get back over .500 and into the race in the NL Central.
The Brewers have lost just once in their last 10 and are tied with the Cubs atop the NL Central. They are getting more consistent offense of late and have claimed to 9th in homers. Christian Yelich has hit two in June after just one in April and May combined.
Adrian Houser pitched in relief in his last outing but he threw 98 pitches so we are not really looking at a role change, more of circumstances. He has been good of late with just one run allowed in his last 10 innings. His road splits are not favourable though.
Milwaukee has great high leverage relievers. Josh Hader has more wild pitches than runs allowed this season, 3 to 2. When he comes into the game it is basically over.
The Reds just completed a four-game sweep of the Cardinals. Once again the bats are booming, especially that of OF Jesse Winker who hit three homers on Sunday. He and Nick Castellanos and the top two average hitters in the league and with Tyler Naquin they are the most productive outfield in the game right now.
Sonny Gray should probably have more than one win this season for the way he has pitched. He did get roughed up in his last start and his homers are concerning. The offense can back him up but he is not the pitcher he was a couple of years ago.
Cincinnati’s bullpen has one of the highest strikeout rates in the league. They can dominate but their consistency has not been great. They have a bunch of guys with saves but some of that has been out of necessity.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Intriguing matchup as the Reds get to avoid one of the Brewers’ better pitchers in the opener. I have been burned by Gray a bunch of times this season so I am getting a little gunshy I must admit. With the Brewers in such good form they are a nice underdog value today.
