Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee Brewers 

Monday, April 16th, 2018, Miller Park

SP: Castillo (CIN) vs. Suter (MIL)

The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers will open a three-game series on Monday at Miller Park in Milwaukee. First pitch is set for 7:40 P.M ET and can be seen on MLB Extra Innings. Both teams are coming off losses in their most recent game.

Reds Struggling in 2018

Of all 30 teams in the MLB, the Cincinnati Reds have the worst record with a 2-13 mark. At this point, with a limited number of brand names on their team, it’s safe to say the Reds are in the middle of a rebuild.

Both the pitching staff and offense have been to blame so far. In fact, they’re both pulling down some really ugly-looking rankings. The pitching staff is sporting the worst ERA in baseball (6.04) while their offense is second-to-last in total runs scored (42).

Luis Castillo will be making his fourth start of the season for the Reds. In his first three, he’s gone 0-2 and has an ERA of 7.31.

Brew Crew Up and Down This Year

Through 16 games this year, the Milwaukee Brewers have been consistently on a roller coaster. Now, heading into Monday’s game, they’re 8-8 and sit 3.5-games behind the Pirates for first place in the NL Central. Most recently, the Brewers were beaten by a walk-off home run versus the Mets.

Offensively, the Brewers rank N0. 18 in runs scored. However, two of their biggest stars — Ryan Braun and Eric Thames — are both hitting under .225. Once they get going, the team could start tallying up some consistent W’s.

On Monday, the team will send Brent Suter to the bump for his fourth start of the year. In his previous outings, Suter has been average: 1-1 win-loss record with an ERA of 4.70.

Trends:

CIN:

  • 23-53 in their last 76 road games.
  • 0-7 in their last 7 games overall.

MIL:

  • N/A

The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers will open a three-game series on Monday at Miller Park in Milwaukee. First pitch is set for 7:40 P.M ET and can be seen on MLB Extra Innings. Both teams are coming off losses in their most recent game.

Betting-wise, you can’t take anyone but the Brewers. The Reds are struggling in every aspect of the game and it won’t get any better playing in front of opposing fans.
