Cincinnati is 18-35 in their last 53 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 13-3-1 in Cincinnati’s last 17 games. Pittsburgh is 4-2 in their last 6 games as a home favorite and 3-8 in their last 11 home games. The under is 5-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 6 home games. Cincinnati is 21-7 in these two teams last 28 head to head meetings.

The Cincinnati Reds look like a completely different team in their last few games, but still are one of the worst teams in the MLB. Both of these pitchers have struggled this season and have ERA’s north of 6. I like the over in this matchup.
