By all accounts it was a great opening weekend for the Cubs as they took 2 of 3 from Milwaukee. David Ross will take a series win as he begins his inaugural season as skipper of Chicago.
The Reds on the other hand are reeling a bit. Cincinnati dropped 2 of 3 from lowly Detroit in games they were huge favorites as. Cincinnati did fare well against the Cubs a season ago however.
There’s a lot of firepower in this matchup and Chicago definitely found the long ball over the weekend at Wrigley. The Cubs belted out 6 HRs vs. the Brewers with two each from Anthony Rizzo and Ian Happ.
One of the bright spots in Sunday’s 9-1 win over Milwaukee was Kris Bryant finally getting his first hit of the year. That should continue Monday as Bryant is 6-14 with a HR vs. Reds starter Wade Miley.
Not many teams can throw out a pitcher the quality of Jon Lester in their 4th start of the season. The 36-year-old is getting up there though and last year posted his highest ERA (4.46) since 2007.
The Reds are supposed to have one of the most potent offenses in baseball this season and that was on display in a 7-1 win over Detroit in the season opener. Since then though Cincinnati has fell 4-6 and 2-3.
Cincinnati still has potential on Monday as they do have five batters hitting above .300 after the first weekend of the season. Joey Votto is also off to a hot start with 2 HRs but has just 1 in 47 ABs vs. Lester.
The Reds counter on the mound with Wade Miley. Like Lester, Miley is no spring chicken at 33 years old but he’s coming off a 14-6 season in 2019 with the Astros.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Over is 8-2 in Cubs last 10 games after a win
- Over is 6-2 in Reds’ last 8 Monday games
- Cubs are 15-4 in Lester’s last 19 starts vs. Reds
