Cincinnati is 6-1 in their last 7 game 4’s of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games. The over is 14-3-1 in Cincinnati’s last 18 games.

Cincinnati is 21-8 in these two teams last 29 head to head meetings.

The Reds continue to play well in their last few games as they try to turn their season around after their horrific start. Pittsburgh has a few more wins, but has not been much better than Cincinnati. The Reds are starting Greene in this game, who has not been good this year. Based on the pitching matchup, I really like the Pirates here.
