Cincinnati is 17-36 in their last 53 road games and 2-8 in their last 10 games. The over is 5-1 in Cincinnati’s last 6 games. Chicago is 3-7 in their last 10 Tuesday games and 5-15 in their last 20 games. The over is 4-1 in Chicago’s last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 3-1-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Chicago.

Neither of these teams have been very good this year and both come into this matchup well below the .500 mark. Cincinnati has really struggled in their last 10 games, but did just take two out of three against a good San Francisco team. Cincinnati is starting Luis Castillo, who has allowed seven runs over his last 12 innings. For Chicago, Keegan Thompson has allowed only one run in his last 12 innings of work. I like Chicago in this game as I really like what I have seen from Thompson lately.
