Reds Look To Take Advantage Of Struggling Brewers in NL Central Match Up

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 5/8/2013 7:10:57 PM

The Cincinnati Reds face an uphill climb in a tough National League Central this sports betting season. Success against their division rivals will be among the keys to making the postseason. It may still be early, but ever win will be important as the Reds look to keep up with the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals. That fight continues with the Milwaukee Brewers in town for a three-game set this weekend, with Cincinnati just 2.5 games up on them for third in the NL Central.

The Reds have been pretty steady on both sides of the ball, ranking in the top-10 in both runs scored and team ERA. 23-year old lefty Tony Cingrani has been one of the pleasant stories of the early season so far for Cincinnati, as he has gone six innings or further in three-straight starts and is 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA on the year. Cingrani will get the nod for Friday’s season opener against the Brewers, with Yovani Gallardo on the mound for Milwaukee. Gallardo is 3-1 despite a 4.50 ERA, and was roughed up a little bit by the Cardinals in his last start. The Brewers’ bullpen also struggled against St. Louis, and the Reds will look to add to their struggles on Friday night.

Mat Latos is another young starter that has been excellent for Cincinnati early on this season. The 25-year old righty is 3-0 with a 2.23 ERA, and all three of his wins have come in his last three starts. Latos has allowed just three earned runs in 18 innings of work over that span, and will look to build on a strong couple of weeks of work when he takes the mound opposite of Marco Estrada for Milwaukee. Estrada is coming off of his worst start of the online sportsbook season after he allowed eight earned runs in just 3.1 innings of work against St. Louis, and he could be ripe for some more runs as Latos looks to add to his season wins total.

After enjoying the pitching match up in each of the first two online betting games in this series, the Reds will face a much tougher setting as Bronson Arroyo looks to snap a string of three-straight losses in finale of the three-game set. Arroyo has been tagged for 11 earned runs over 18 innings of work in his last three starts – all of which have been Cincinnati losses. The Brewers will counter with Willy Peralta, who is 3-1 in his last four appearances. Peralta is coming off of a solid win over the Texas Rangers in which he allowed just two earned runs over six innings of work, and he should be able to get enough run support to add to his hot streak as Milwaukee salvages a win.
