Cincinnati Reds vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I'm not excited to back the Arizona Diamondbacks in the favorite role, and I'm even less thrilled to lay juice with Jordan Montgomery and his struggles. However, the Reds continue to disappoint, and I'm not excepting things to change on the road, especially against a Diamondbacks team they recently already struggled with. The Arizona Diamondbacks are at home, and they swept the Reds last week on the road. The Cincinnati Reds have some showing and proving to do before this season starts to get away from them. Give me the Diamondbacks and the reasonable price.
