Reds make move despite win streak
The Reds are coming off three straight wins over the Phillies this weekend, but they traded Adam Duvall to the Braves on Monday. Cincinnati is 48-58 overall and 22-27 on the road. The Reds are putting up 4.69 runs per game this season while allowing 5.12 per contest.
Homer Bailey gets the start for the Reds this evening. He has started 13 games this season and has just a 1-7 record with a 6.29 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. Bailey has pitched a total of 68.2 innings this year and has 46 strikeouts with 26 walks.
The Tigers continued their alternating trends for a 10th straight game on Sunday in an 8-1 loss. They have not won or lost back-to-back games over their last 10. Detroit is now 45-62 overall with a 27-27 record at home. The Tigers are putting up 3.88 runs per game this year while giving up 4.64 per contest.
Matthew Boyd gets the start for the Tigers tonight. He has started 20 games this season and has a 5-9 record with a 4.53 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Boyd has pitched a total of 109.1 innings this year and has 100 strikeouts with 38 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds have won nine of their last 11 interleague games but they have lost 44 of their last 61 interleague road games.
The Tigers have won their last five games following a loss and they are 92-45 in their last 137 interleague home games.
The Reds have been somewhat hot lately, but the trading of Duvall will seriously impact their ability to produce runs. I could see that being a problem against Boyd, who is capable of good starts. Bailey hasn’t been good this year and I think the Tigers can manage some runs against him on their home turf.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers -120
