Reds' struggles continue

Cincinnati lost by a score of 6-2 at home Tuesday night against Philadelphia to drop to 64-75 overall and 37-33 at home. Aristides Aquino helped pace the offense as he finished 1-for-4 with an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends


The Phillies are 5-1 in their last six games versus a right-handed starter. Philadelphia is 5-1 in the last six Nola starts versus the NL Central.


The Reds are 1-6 in their last seven games overall. Cincinnati is 0-4 in the last four Bauer starts.


I can't back struggling Cincinnati or Bauer right now. With Philly playing some good baseball and needing every win it can get in the playoff race, I'm betting on its ace today to get the job done.
