Reds take opener
The Reds opened the series at Cleveland with a 7-5 win to put an end to their brief 2-game losing streak. Cincinnati is now 40-51 on the season and 19-25 on the road. Cincinnati is putting up 4.71 runs per game this year while allowing 5.07 per contest.
Sal Romano gets the start for the Reds this evening. He has started 18 games this season and is 5-8 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Romano has logged 95.0 innings this season and has 73 strikeouts with 38 walks.
Indians drop third straight
The Indians suffered their third consecutive loss on Monday with the 7-5 defeat at the hands of the Reds. The Tribe is now 49-40 overall and 28-16 at home. Cleveland is putting up 5.00 runs per game this year while allowing 4.21 per contest.
Trevor Bauer gets the start for the Indians this evening. He is making his 19th start of the season and is 8-6 on the year with a 2.45 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. Bauer has pitched 121.1 innings and has 156 strikeouts with 37 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds have won eight of their last nine against AL Central opponents and eight of their last nine interleague games.
The Indians have won six of Bauer’s last seven home starts and they have won 47 of their last 67 home games.
The Indians are going hot-and-cold at the plate, but I think even if they are cold tonight, Bauer should be able to lead them to a victory. Romano hasn’t been very strong for the Reds and I don’t think Cincinnati is going to give him a lot of run support this evening. This could be a low-scoring game if Cleveland stays cold at the plate, but I still think the Tribe will win.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -230
