Cincinnati Reds vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

The Cincinnati Reds still can't get out of their own way as the losses continue to pile up, and at some point they have to show us something before we can back them with confidence. The Reds also haven't had any success with Hunter Greene on the mound, which doesn't make this game that intriguing. Slade Cecconi has been rocked at Chase Field this season, but it's a small sample size, so we'll give him a pass for now. Bottom line is, the Reds are a losing machine right now and not a team I'm interested in backing. Give me the Diamondbacks and the cheap price.
