Brewers Attempt To Make Up Ground On Idle Rockies

The Milwaukee Brewers sit 2.5 games back of the last NL wild-card spot with just four games left in the season. This is not the most inspiring position to be in but the Brew Crew has a chance to gain ground on the idle Colorado Rockies on Thursday. Unfortunately for the Brewers, they are playing the Cincinnati Reds, who have won four of the past five meetings between the two clubs.

  • The Reds are 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against the Brewers.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Reds’ last 14 games against the Brewers.
  • The Reds are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games against teams with winning records.

Brent Suter, who gets the start for the Brewers, has been slowly seeing his pitch count climb since returning to the rotation. The southpaw has allowed just three runs in his past three starts but has not pitched through the sixth inning once. Suter has faced the Reds three times this season – one start – with a 6.43 ERA in those outings.

Rookie Sal Romano has solidified his place in the Reds rotation next season but will look to be rounding out this year on a high. The 23-year-old has a 2.95 ERA in his past seven starts, though the Reds would like to see him cut down on his walks.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The visiting Cincinnati Reds were +160 moneyline underdogs in this one earlier in the day at most online sportsbooks including Bovada. The total was 9.5 at Bet365 for those preferring OVER/UNDER betting.
