At the beginning of the season if someone would have said that the the Cincinnati Reds would be ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the standings on May 15th you might look at them like they are crazy. But that is the case and those two teams match up in a three game series.
The Cincinnati Reds have had a good start to the season and I don’t think anyone in Cincinnati is complaining.
They come into this game with a 19-18 record and sit 2.5 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for first place in the National League Central.
On the mound for the Reds is Bronson Arroyo. He had tough start to the season but has been pitching better as of late. In three of the last four games he has only given up two runs.
He seems to be pitching with more control and hasn’t been giving up as many walks.
The Chicago Cubs have had a tough start to the season and they seem to be having a little World Series hangover. They come into this game with a 18-19 record and they sit in fourth place in the National League Central.
On the mound for the Cubs is John Lackey who has had an up and down season.
He comes into this game with a record of 3-3 and an ERA of 4.29.
He did have his best start in his last game going seven innings against a very good Rockies team giving up zero runs and striking out ten.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds +170
Arroyo has been really good against the Cubs and I think that will continue in this game. He will have a good start and they will win in a low scoring game.
