Reds vs Phillies Betting Prediction

These two teams have split the first two games in this series and they will go for the series win in this matchup. Philadelphia has had some issues with their pitching, but they erupted for nine runs on Tuesday night in their win. Cincinnati has scored at least six runs in four of their first five games, but they will go up against Zack Wheeler, who was dominant in his first start against the Braves. The Reds will counter with Frankie Montas, who threw six shutout innings against the Nationals in his first start. Both of these pitchers have looked very solid to start the year and I think we could be in for a very low scoring game. Take the under here.
