Cincinnati is 16-36 in their last 52 road games and 1-8 in their last 9 games. The under is 9-4-1 in Cincinnati’s last 14 road games. San Francisco is 16-6 in their last 22 Sunday games and 6-2 in their last 8 home games. The under is 7-2-2 in San Francisco’s last 11 home games. Cincinnati is 3-8 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

The Giants bounced back after losing Game 1 of this series with an offensive explosion to get the blowout win on Saturday. In this matchup, Anthony DeSclafani is making his second start after being activated from the IL. DeSclafani was not sharp in his last start, allowing five runs over three innings. For the Reds, Tyler Mahle allowed 12 hits and four runs over six innings against the Dodgers in his last start. I like the value the Reds have in this game going up against a pitcher who hasn’t had success this season. I am taking the Reds as underdogs.
