The National League Central has not played out the way many thought it would this season. Milwaukee leads the division by five games while Cincinnati is seven games out behind Pittsburgh and St. Louis. The Brewers and the Reds meet on Sunday afternoon in a rubber match of a three-game series with Yovani Gallardo and Mat Latos taking the hill in a battle of righties. We are going to back the visiting Brewers as they take two of three in this series from the Reds.
Milwaukee looks to extend lead in the division
With Yovani Gallardo on the hill today, the Brewers have an excellent chance at winning this game and the series against their division rivals. Gallardo is 5-5 this year with an ERA at 3.51. Gallardo was rocked by Colorado his last time out, which was is first bad start in more than a month. He will look to rebound on Sunday afternoon against Cincinnati by commanding his curveball.
Cincinnati trying to make a dent in deficit
The Reds have been trying to put a dent in the Brewers lead in the Central all season, but have not been able to move close to the top of the standings. Cincinnati will ask Mat Latos to secure a victory on Sunday. In his last start, Latos and Sam LeCure combined on a one-hitter against San Diego in a 1-0 loss. Latos allowed a leadoff walk in the fifth that scored without a hit.
Betting on Major League Baseball Sunday afternoon will be done at BetOnline.ag, where the visiting Brewers are underdogs against the Reds. We still like Gallardo and Milwaukee to get the job done today, which is why we will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on the Brewers and the OVER 7.5 total runs scored at -105 in this National League Central contest early Sunday.
