Cincinnati is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games. The over is 4-1 in Cincinnati’s last 5 Sunday games. Miami is 3-8 in their last 11 games and 0-5 in their last 5 home games. The over is 5-1 in Miami’s last 6 game three’s of a series.

The Reds come into this game looking for the series sweep and they have hit the ball very well in the first two games in this series. Miami is the second worst team in runs scored, but they will face Luke Weaver, who has allowed at least four earned runs in four straight starts. Miami is starting Braxton Garrett, who has allowed 15 earned runs over his last two starts. I like the over in this matchup.
