Pick on the Moneyline of Brewers-Reds for Friday

VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Friday’s matchup between the Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Milwaukee Brewers have had their worst stretch of the season with a 2-10 mark in their last 12 games and will look to get back on track on Friday in Cincinnati against the Reds.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Cincinnati Reds (-115, 9.5)

The Reds will give Hunter Greene the start, and is coming off of his best two start stretch of the season with one run allowed in his last two starts across 12 innings, but still for the season has a 5.10 ERA with 2.25 home runs and 3.9 walks per nine innings.

The Brewers offense has had their best success against the Reds this season, averaging 9.2 runs per game in their six games against Cincinnati this season and has scored at least five runs in every game this season.

Eric Lauer gets the start for the Brewers, who’s getting 9.8 strikeouts per nine innings and has allowed three runs or fewer in 24 of his last 27 starts, posting a 3.36 ERA.

The Reds have the league’s worst bullpen ERA, posting a 5.15 and are currently the lone MLB team with a bullpen ERA above 5.00.

Brewers closer Josh Hader is unlikely in the bullpen on Friday as he is on the paternity list, but the team has a rested Devin Williams and the Brewers will bust out of their funk and start their series in Cincinnati with a win.
