GEDmatch one to one, Half Brother

My suspected half brother's ftDNA FF raw data was ready for download, but the match list has not populated yet, so I uploaded to GEDmatch and ran the one to one... results shown below

Largest segment = 74.7 cM
Total of segments > 7 cM = 1731.7 cM
Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 1.5

I am looking for input regarding if you think this is consistent with a half brother match.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, that is consistent with a half-sibling match.

Here is a link to a page at ISOGG that lists the average amounts of cM shared and percentages of DNA shared for various relationships:
