Reds Betting Preview

Cincinnati moved to 19-25 after falling to New York. The Reds let the Yanks sneak away last night, and they’ve now dropped four of their last five games. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 3.78 runs per game, while batting .244, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.22 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP.

Luke Weaver (1-2, 6.26 ERA, 2 Ks) will take the bump for Cincinnati. The journeyman pitcher has been solid in his last two outings. Weaver earned his first victory of the season after going six full innings against the Mets, before tossing six strikeouts in 5.1 innings, and allowing just one run to the Marlins. Weaver did struggle in his first two road starts of the season, allowing eight runs and earning two losing decisions. 

New York vs Cincinnati Trends

New York is 21-21  the spread this season, with a 22-19-4  O/U record. Cincinnati s 25-17 ATS this year, with a 22-18-2 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

With Cleveland in Queens facing the Mets, it’s only right the Yankees find themselves in Cincinnati this season weekend, and just like their fellow borough counterparts who took care of business yesterday, they have a shot of doubling down here as well. Even with it set to be a bullpen day, the Yankees’ lineup is on right now, and they should be able to find production off of Luke Weaver here. Trust New York’s momentum, and back them for game two of this interleague series.
