Cubs Betting Preview
Chicago is 1-3 after losing to Cincinnati last night. The Cubs have dropped three straight since defeating Milwaukee on Opening Day, and they’ll look to respond here. Chicago is batting .213 at the plate, while pitching with a 4.00 ERA. New addition Dansby Swanson has recorded three hits in three of the first four games.
Hayden Wesneski will get the call for Chicago. The second-year pitcher had a solid month of September after coming up from the minors last season, posting a 3-2 record, with a 2.18 ERA, and with 33 strikeouts. Wesneski did earn one of his wins against the Reds last season, and he tossed 14 strikeouts in two appearances against them.
Reds Betting Preview
Cincinnati comes in at 3-1 after defeating Chicago last night. The Reds picked up their third straight win after matching the Cubs blow for blow in game one. Cincinnati is batting .242 at the plate, while pitching with a 2.67 ERA. Former Giants infielder Jason Vosler has homered in back-to-back games, and he led the way with three RBI against the Cubs last night.
Luis Cessa is set to make the bullpen start for Cincy. The eighth-year pitcher went 4-4 in his first full season with the Reds, with a 4.57 ERA, and 59 strikeouts.
Chicago vs Cincinnati Trends
Chicago is 1-3 against the spread this season, with a 2-2 over/under record. Cincinnati is 3-1 ATS this year, with a 2-2 O/U record. Cubs are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Cincinnati.
Corey's Free Pick
Chicago is due for a win after coming so close yesterday, and with Cincinnati playing good ball at Great American early, I think we could see some more runs again in game two. Neither of the two starters present an imposing threat, and if the hot swinging on both sides continue, it could affect the scoreboard. Take the over for this NL Central clash Tuesday.
