MLB Odds on Brewers at Reds

June 26, 2012 MLB Baseball

Bet on BaseballThis National League Central division matchup continues tonight featuring the Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds. The game is scheduled to start at 7:10ET in the Great American Ballpark.

It was great for the Reds to capture the opening MLB betting game of this set last night. The 3-1 win was only their second in their last seven contests. Much, if not all of the credit for last nights victory should go to Cincy starter Mat Latos who had a 1 run, 4 hit complete game performance. Oh yeah, he struck out 13 Brewer batters and had 2 singles of his own.

Norichika Aoki accounted for the only Brewer run with a home run. This marked 63 games in a row at the Great American Ballpark with at least one round tripper. Jay Bruce had a double and 2 runs batted in for Cincinnati.

Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun’s 18 game hit streak ended as did Aramis Ramirez mini streak of 8. The Brewers(33-40) are sitting in fourth place in the NL Central, 3 games in front of Houston, but trailing St.Louis by 5.5. They are behind tonights opponent by 7.5. The Brew Crew is an even 5-5 in their last 10 and just 15-22 when outside of Wisconsin.
Dusty Baker’s Reds are the division leader. They have a won/lost record of 40-32 on the year. They also own a 5-5 mark in their last 10 tries and are 22-15 in Great American.

The Brewers are looking to righthander Marco Estrada (0-3,4.50ERA) to come off the disabled list and proceed directly to the mound to pitch tonight. He has been on the sidelines since May 23. Prior to that, he had a 5.63 earned run average in three starts. One of those games was against these same Reds when he yielded 5 runs on 8 hits in 7 innings of work.

Another righty, Bronson Arroyo(3-5,4.19ERA) takes the mound for Cincy as he did in the earlier game mentioned above versus Estrada. He has had better success against Milwaukee in allowing just 1 run on 6 hits in 6 and 2/3 innings in a win there May 7.
Cincinnati is a home favorite at SBG Global sportsbook -$152, while the Brewers are +$142. The over/under is 8.5 total runs on a $115/$100 moneyline.
