Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Spin

Ryan Braun delivered a pair of doubles, the second plating the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth, in the Brewers' 4-3 win over the Reds on Monday. That Braun will be in and out of the lineup an awful lot as the season progress limits his fantasy value these days, but he's still something close to an elite hitter when he's healthy. He's 6-for-18 with a homer and five RBI.

Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Spin

Matt Kemp got his second straight start over Jesse Winker on Monday, but he was ejected after going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Kemp should start against lefties, but he's an inferior option to Winker against righties and he started over Winker against a righty tonight. It shouldn't be a regular thing, we hope.

MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers have now won eight of their last 11 games at the Great American Ballpark and are 5-1 in their last six games versus the Reds overall.

Cincinnati

The Reds are 2-9 in their last 11 games overall dating back to last year and are 2-7 in their last nine home games.

Prediction:

While last night’s game in Cincinnati between these two teams was low-scoring, I see tonight playing out in an opposite manner. The Brewers are playing in a home run-friendly park against a starter in Anthony DeSclafani that has allowed a 42% hard contract rate to left-handed hitters. Hello Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas. Speaking of lefties, Joey Votto, Jesse Winker and Scott Schebler should fare well versus Jhoulys Chacin, who owns a strikeout rate of just 15% against lefties. The over is 4-1-1 in DeSclafani’s last six starts versus the Brewers and is 5-2-1 in the previous eight meetings between these division rivals in Cincinnati.

The Pick: Brewers/Reds over 8.5
