Reds-Brewers: How to Watch, Stream & Bet Apple TV's 'Friday Night Baseball'


August 5

The Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds will kick off their three-game weekend series on Friday night, the second Apple TV matchup.

Milwaukee has done an excellent job of beating weaker foes this season, and that’s helped lead them to a lead in the NL Central over the St. Louis Cardinals. 

The Brew Crew are set to send lefty Eric Lauer to the bump, while the Reds will be countering with a to-be-announced stater. 

Lauer has posted a 7-3 record with a 3.75 ERA and 107 strikeouts, while the numbers for the Reds starter will be posted once they become available.

Moneyline: Reds/Brewers | Run Line (1.5): Reds/Brewers| Total: TBD

In addition to traditional bets like the moneyline, run line, and game total, several bets are offered at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Will the Reds Play Spoiler in Divisional Clash with Brewers?

The Cincinnati Reds still have some formidable pieces in their batting lineup after the trade deadline, but the Brewers have been able to pitch well against them this season, which should continue in Game 1. There are question marks in the Reds rotation now after dealing two key pieces at the deadline, meaning you’ll likely see a call up on the mound in this first game. 

Reds Projected Lineup:

2B Jonathan India

SS Kyle Farmer

LF Jake Fraley

1B Mike Moustakas

DH Joey Votto

3B Donovan Solano

RF Aristides Aquino

CF Albert Almora

C Michael Papierski

Starting Pitcher: TBD

Will the Brew Crew Continue Beating up Poor Competition?

With the consistency that Lauer has given the team in their rotation, this is an excellent matchup for him to continue improving upon his numbers and boosting his stats. With the Brewers owning some solid starting pitching, Lauer has been a good back of the rotation arm and has performed well above expectations in giving the team many quality starts. 

Brewers Projected Lineup:

DH Christian Yelich

SS Willy Adames

1B Rowdy Tellez

LF Andrew McCutchen

2B Kolten Wong

RF Hunter Renfroe

C Victor Caratini

3B Michael Brosseau

CF Jonathan Davis 

Starting Pitcher: Eric Lauer
