MLB Betting Trends

Cincinnati

The Reds are 1-7 in their last eight road games. The over is 11-4 in the last 15 Cincinnati road games.

New York

The Mets are 9-24 in their last 33 Tuesday games. New York is 11-25 in its last 36 home games.

Prediction:

Romano has had brief glimpes where's he shown some potential, but he still is struggling for the most part. As for Vargas, he's cooked and goes against a Reds offense that can pack a punch and is one of the best in baseball at drawing walks. Nothing here screams pitching will go well in this game. Take the over.
