Reds vs Cubs Odds

The Cubbies returned to their lovable loser ways in 2021 and have begun this season just 16-24. Chicago is looking to rebound after dropping three-of-four to Arizona over the weekend. The Reds have baseball’s worst record of 12-28, but have looked like a real MLB team of late. They’ve won 9 of their last 15 games, and have won or split four of their last five series’.

  • 11-7 ATS on the road this year
  • Covered their last 5 road games
  • 7-11 towards the Under while on the road this year
  • Covered the Run Line in 7 straight games
  • Won 5 of their last 7 road games outright
  • 6-8 ATS at home this year
  • 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games
  • 11-3 towards the Over at home this year
  • Covered the Run LIne in 12 of their last 14 games
  • Have hit the game total Over in 9 consecutive home games

Reds vs Cubs Prediction & Pick

Neither of these two teams looks like they’ll be contending in 2022 and they’re pretty evenly matched offensively. The Cubs are far better on the mound however and have allowed 60 fewer runs than the Reds on the season. Drew Smyly has only received 8 runs of support over his last five starts but should expect much more tonight. Cincy starter Vladimir Gutierrez has been touched up for 17 runs in his last three outings and opponents totaled 8+ runs scored in all three of those games. The Run Line is too dicey for Chicago but I’m confident that they’ll reign victories to open the series.

Pick: Cubs ML -130
