The Reds have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Reds.

The Brewers are 5-1 in Kyle Lohse’s last 6 road starts.

Total Pick:

Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon has been razor sharp this season with 16 quality starts in 18 appearances. The Reds have won 6 in a row when Simons take the mound and are 4-1 in his last 5 starts at home. Simons faced Milwaukee back on May 4 of this year going 7 innings giving up 5 hits and 3 earned runs. The Brewers counter with Kyle Lohse who has also has had a solid season to date with a 9-2 record and 3.08 ERA. Lohse has pitched 5 consecutive QS against the Reds dating back to 2013, only giving up 8 earned runs in 35 innings in those 5 outings. Both of these clubs are on a 3 game winless streak. I feel with the two quality hurlers on the mound tonight that runs will be tough to come by, so I’ll make a play on the total here. Take the Under 7.5.
