The Milwaukee Brewers will try to complete a 3-game sweep in Cincinnati Ohio when they take on the Reds. The Reds have been outscored 12-7 in this series and have lost 3 in a row coming into this game. The current line has the Brewers as slight favorites sitting at -135 on the money line. The Reds are at +115 and Betfred is perfect spot to take a little action on this game. A $100 wager will bring back $115 if you take the Reds, while the Brewers would bring back $74.

This game will feature Adrian Houser who comes into this matchup with a 4.21 ERA. He has been a little rocky on the road posting a 5.72 ERA and has allowed 4 or more in back-to-back road starts. The Brewers have lost 6 of Adrian Houser’s last 7 starts.
Mike Minor will get the start for the Reds, but he has looked rather shaky in his starts this season. He has a 7.36 ERA on the season and has allowed 5 runs, 3 runs, and 4 runs in his 3 games this season. The Reds have lost 2 of his 3 appearances this season. The current total in this matchup is 9.5 with the juice at -110 either way on the over or under. In 2 of the 3 starts by Minor, 9 or more runs have been scored in the games.
A couple trends to consider in this matchup is that the over has hit in 7 of the last 8 head-to-head meetings. Milwaukee has also hit the over in 12 of their last 15-day games. Milwaukee is also 12-3 in their last 15 road games played on Sunday.
Betfred has a lot of betting options, and you can use your free bet on the total. A $100 bet on the over or under will return $90. If you wager on this game and use the code VIBONUS at sign up, there is no risk to you at all. If the bet placed is a losing ticket, Betfred will load your account with the money placed on the wager.
