The Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals have won the first two games of this series. On Saturday the Cardinals won 5-4.

Paul Goldschmidt has hit 12 home runs and driven in 47 RBIs so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Reds who sit with a 20-39 record overall and they are struggling again having lost four games in a row. Over the last four games the Reds have only scored eight runs total and they need to get the offense going. The Reds pitching has been a big issue so far this year giving up 5.31 runs per game.

On the mound for the Reds is Graham Ashcraft who sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 1.14. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went six innings giving up three hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Cardinals is Dakota Hudson who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 2.76. In his last start against the Rays he went seven innings giving up two hits and one run. 

The Cardinals are 1-5 in Hudson’s last six Sunday starts. The under is 7-0 in the Reds last seven road games. The under is 5-0 in the Reds last five road games against a right-handed starter. 

The trends point towards the under, and runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Ashcraft has been so strong this season and in his last start he gave up zero runs. Hudson also sits with an ERA under three. Look for both offenses to struggle against the opposing pitching and the under is going to cash.
