Chicago has won six of their last eight games, and have scored at least five runs in five games during that stretch. Javier Baez leads them with a .292 average to go along with 28 homers and 79 RBI. Kris Bryant (22 HR) and Anthony Rizzo (21 HR) have had strong seasons as well so far.
Jon Lester is 9-8 with a 4.39 ERA on the season. Lester has been tagged the last few starts. Over his last two outings against Oakland and St. Louis he has allowed 14 runs in nine innings. In his lone start against the Reds this season he allowed three runs in 5.2 innings.
The Reds are playing their best baseball of the season. The team has won four of their last five games against some solid opposition (Angels/Cubs). Eugenio Suarez has been their leader throughout the season with 31 homers and 73 RBI. Joey Votto has had a down season by his standards with a .256 average and 12 homers.
Luis Castillo has been money all season, in fact he’s been one of the best players in baseball. Castillo has an 11-4 record to go with a 2.63 ERA. Castillo has an incredible 164 K’s in only 137 innings. Castillo has been magnificent over his last two starts, allowing two runs in 14 innings.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
While the Cubs are certainly the better team on paper, it’s the Reds with the pitching edge in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds ML
I expect Castillo to have a terrific start, while Lester pitches decent. The Cubs will score some runs in the last few innings off the Reds bullpen, but it will be too late. Take the Reds at this terrific price.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Reds 5 – Cubs 3
