Same Game Parlay Odds: +663
Brewers -1.5 (+150)
Despite the Cincinnati Reds’ hot streak, the Milwaukee Brewers have had success against them, winning four of their last five meetings this season. The Reds’ offense has cooled off recently, averaging just 3.20 runs per game in their last 10 contests. With Luke Weaver on the mound for the Reds, who has struggled with poor metrics in xBA, xSLG, and WOBA, the Brewers should have an advantage. Expect Milwaukee to secure a victory by at least 2 runs.
Over 9.5 (-105)
Both teams have shown offensive prowess, making the over an appealing bet. The Reds, led by rookie sensation Elly De La Cruz, are averaging 5.03 runs per game and have hit the over in 10 of their last 14 games. The Brewers, averaging 5.50 runs per game in their last 10 meetings against the Reds, have also hit the over in 7 of their last 8 games and 4 of their last 5 at home. With the pitching matchup and recent team performances, expect a high-scoring game.
Luke Weaver under 4.5 strikeouts (-154)
Luke Weaver has struggled to miss bats this season, ranking in the bottom 20th percentile of all qualified starters in strikeout percentage. His metrics in whiff rate and chase rate also place him in the bottom 14th percentile. With an ERA of 6.72 and poor wOBA and maximum exit velocity metrics, Weaver hasn’t been able to tally many strikeouts. In his last six outings, he has recorded 4 or fewer strikeouts each time. Bet on Weaver to go under 4.5 strikeouts once again.
For the Cincinnati Reds vs. Milwaukee Brewers Same Game Parlay, we’re backing the Brewers on the run line (-1.5) as they have had success against the Reds this season. We also expect a high-scoring game, taking the over 9.5, and predict Luke Weaver to record under 4.5 strikeouts.
