  • The Red Sox have won each of their last six games after playing the previous day.
  • The Red Sox have covered the run line in each of their last 13 Sunday day road games.
  • The Reds have failed to cover the run line in each of their last six home games against AL East opponents following a home loss.

Reds Need to Get the Offense Going

The Reds need to get the offense going after they didn’t score enough on Saturday. The Reds scored two runs in the bottom of the 1st but only finished with one run the rest of the game and they ended up losing. Spencer Steer hit a home run and drove in two RBis. The Reds are averaging 4.17 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.01 runs per game. The offense is ranked 19th in the league while the pitching is ranked 8th. Elly De La Cruz is having a strong season hitting 13 home runs and driving in 32 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Reds will be Nick Lodolo who sits with an 8-2 record and an ERA of 2.76. In his last start against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he went seven innings giving up four hits and one run. 

Why the Reds Will Win

  • The Red Sox have lost 10 of their last 12 games against National League opponents following a road win.
  • The Red Sox have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight road games against National League opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Reds have covered the run line in six of their last seven home games against teams that held a winning record.

Boston Red Sox vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

The Reds are going to win this game and take the series. Nick Lodolo has been dominant this season and he hasn’t been given enough attention for what he has done so far this year. The Red Sox are averaging 4.62 runs per game but they aren’t going to get even close that number here. The Red Sox aren’t going to score more than two runs and the Reds will get the job done. Back the Reds on the money line.
