Brewers' Anderson outstanding in tough luck loss to Cubs

Chase Anderson was terrific in a tough luck loss against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing just one run on five hits across his seven innings of work.

Anderson struck out two and walked one. The only blemish on his night was a solo blast off the bat of Kyle Schwarber in the sixth inning, but that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Anderson, now 2-2 on the season, will carry an outstanding 2.86 ERA and 1.01 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Reds' Bailey allows four runs to Braves in last start

Homer Bailey surrendered four runs in five innings Thursday versus the Braves. Bailey struck out just one today, and he's topped four strikeouts in only one of his six starts this year. He's looked a little better than anticipated overall, but he still seems like a shaky bet going forward.

MLB Betting Trends


The Brewers have won four of their last five games against the Reds but are just 2-5 in their last seven contests in Cincinnati despite winning there on Monday night. The Crew is also winless at 0-4 in Anderson's last four starts versus the Reds.


The Reds are 4-1 in Bailey's last five starts against the Brewers.


The Reds' current roster has faced Anderson 61 times and are hitting just .180 against him with one home run. The Brewers have had more success versus Bailey at .307 but both of these pitchers have been able to limit the damage against them when facing tonight's opposition. The under is 6-1 in Bailey's last seven starts overall, is 4-0 in his last four games against the rest of the division, and is 8-1 in Anderson's last nine starts overall. I think the total has been set too high tonight.


The Pick: Brewers/Reds under 9.5
