Reds losing momentum
Cincinnati was on a six-game winning streak but had suffered back-to-back losses to the Brewers this weekend. The Reds are 36-40 on the season, 17-23 on the road and 47-27 with the under. The Reds have Tyler Mahle taking the mound today. He is 2-7 on the season with a 4.17 ERA.
The Reds have been led by their pitching staff this season. They have a 3.61 ERA with a 1.24 team WHIP and 732 strikeouts. All of those numbers rank in the top five of the majors. On offense, Cincinnati averages 4.39 runs per game while hitting .235 at the plate. Eugenio Suarez leads the team with 13 doubles, 16 home runs and 45 RBI. Yasiel Puig has nine doubles, 16 home runs and 44 RBI.
Angels end skid
Los Angeles had its three-game winning streak come to an end on Sunday with a 6-4 win at St. Louis. The Angels are 39-40 on the season, 19-18 at home and 37-36 with the under. Los Angeles has Andrew Heaney on the mound today. He is 0-1 on the season with a 5.68 ERA.
The Angels are averaging 5.08 runs per game on offense this season while hitting .260 at the plate as a team. On the mound, Los Angeles has a 4.98 team ERA with a 1.35 team WHIP. Mike Trout is leading the team with 18 doubles, 22 home runs and 56 RBI. Tommy La Stella is adding 15 home runs and 43 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds are just 15-40 in their last 55 interleague road games and 11-5 in their last 16 games following a loss.
The Angels are 22-8 in their last 30 interleague home games and 8-3 in Heaney’s last 11 home starts.
Mahle has given up multiple runs in five straight starts and his road numbers are pretty poor, as he has a 4.83 ERA away from home. Heaney hasn’t been much better, allowing five runs in two of his last three starts. He hasn’t been able to get deep into games either. The Reds have a bullpen that can help Mahle if he struggles. Heaney can’t say the same thing. I think the Cincinnati pen will be able to help the Reds get the upset today.
MLB Prediction: Cincinnati Reds +145
