Cincinnati is 9-4 in its last 13 games as an underdog on the road and 25-10 in its last 35 division games while the under is 37-13-4 in its last 54 Wednesday matches. Milwaukee is 36-16 in its last 52 total games and 38-18 in its last 56 Division games, while it is 6-1-2 in its last 9 games.
I understand the case that could be done for both sides here, and while Castillo v Woodruff would be an automatism for me in years gone by, the point is that Castillo has stumbled quite a bit lately and Brandon Woodruff has shaken my confidence. him in his last departure. They’re also two of the best offensives in the NL, so I think the runs could be tucked together again, so give me the upper hand on Wednesday.
