The Philadelphia Phillies will host the Cincinnati Reds and begin a three-game set this Friday from Citizens Banks Park. Philadelphia won six of seven meetings last season, and covered in four of those victories.

Reds Betting Preview

Cincinnati comes in at 3-2 after losing to Chicago on Tuesday. The Reds let the game slip away in the seventh inning, and ended up falling by seven runs, 12-5. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 5.00 runs per game, while batting .261, with a .335 on-base percentage. The Cincy staff carries a 4.80 ERA, with a 1.51 WHIP. Jason Vosler has recorded a RBI in four of the first five games, and he leads the team in home runs (3) as well.

Hunter Greene (0-0, 8.10, 8 Ks) will get the call for Cincinnati. The second-year flamethrower received an extra two days of rest after Wednesday’s game was scratched, and he’ll look to avenge an early exit here in Philly. Greene tossed eight strikeouts, but only lasted three innings before being pulled on Opening Day against Pittsburgh.

Phillies Betting Preview

Philadelphia enters at 1-5 after losing to New York at home. The Phillies got a solid outing from Aaron Nola, but failed to provide the run support and lost by two, 4-2. The Philadelphia offense is scoring 3.60 runs per game, while batting .268, with a .309 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 6.98 ERA, with a 1.69 WHIP. Trea Turner (.370) has recorded a hit in each of his first six games in Philly. Kyle Schwarber (2 HR, 4 RBI) provided a pair of Schwarbombs in the final two games against the Yankees.

Zack Wheeler (0-1, 8.31 ERA. 7 Ks) will take the mound for Philadelphia. The tenth-year pitcher will also be looking to avenge a tough season debut here in their home opener, after giving up four runs in four innings versus Texas. Wheeler was impressive at home last season, posting a 6-3 record with a 1.85 ERA.

Cincinnati vs Philadelphia Trends

Cincinnati is 3-2 against the spread this season, with a 3-2 over/under record. Philadelphia is 2-4 ATS, with a 3-3 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Philadelphia had a tough draw to open the season with a pair of three-game sets in Austin and the Bronx without Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins, but they come into a very manageable spot in their home opener with the Reds. Hunter Greene may have some success, but he’s a volatile pitcher, and the Phillies should be able to capitalize at Citizens Bank. There’s plenty of time for Philly to climb out of the small hole, and it should start here with a strong win over Cincinnati.
