The last-place Cincinnati Reds take on the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks in the desert as both teams anxiously await the conclusion of the 2016 season.
The Reds will look to the 2017 season since 2016 has been an absolute nightmare for them.
The team was plagued with arguably the worst pitching staff in the majors and traded away fan-favorite Jay Bruce to the New York Mets at the trade deadline with the hopes of getting younger, talented prospects. Cincinnati needs to address pitching more than anything else before next season.
Right now, the Reds rank 28th in ERA and WHIP and are dead-last in home runs allowed.
Homer Bailey will take the mound in this one as he looks to reduce his season ERA of 5.73. He was shelled for six earned runs in his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers and failed to make it out of the third inning.
He’s pitched better on the road this year, but he still possesses a 4.30 ERA away from home.
It’s been a lost season for the Arizona Diamondbacks who came into 2016 with great expectations. Zach Greinke and Shelby Miller have not panned out the way the D-backs thought they would, and the rest of the staff has been even worse.
The Diamondbacks have kept the NL West cellar warm for most of the season, due in large part to their 29th ranking in BAA and hits allowed as well as their dead-last ranking in runs allowed.
Archie Bradley will take the mound for the Diamondbacks as he looks for his fifth win of the season. Despite his 5.06 ERA, Bradley has been shelled at home for a 6.16 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.
The last time Bradley faced the Reds, he allowed three earned runs and five walks in just five innings of work. And in August, Bradley has a bloated ERA of 8.22.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Reds are 22-40 on the road.
- Bailey has a .268 BAA on the road.
- The Diamondbacks are 24-42 at home.
- The Diamondbacks O/U is 65-44-3 vs. the NL.
- Bradley has a 8.22 ERA in August.
Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams have horrible pitching, but each of them can swing the bat. Homer Bailey and Archie Bradley have both been awful all season so the over is definitely in play.
This game features the bats of Paul Goldschmidt, Adam Duvall, Welington Castillo and others, so look for plenty of runs between these two last-place teams.
