Cincinnati Reds vs San Francisco Giants Prediction 

Cincinnati comes into this game trying to snap their long losing streak, but they are just 7-8 on the road this year. The Reds have allowed a ton of runs over their last four games, but they will turn to Andrew Abbott, who has been very solid for them. San Francisco is not much better than Cincinnati right now and their pitching staff has also been a problem. Logan Webb is supposed to be San Francisco’s best pitcher, but he has been roughed up in his last two starts. With both teams struggling to stop runners from crossing the plate, my Cincinnati Reds vs San Francisco Giants prediction is for this game to go over the total.
