This matchup sees a pair of NL Central foes square off in Chicago as the Cubs host the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field.
The Reds come into this tilt just a few games under .500, which is not too far out from a NL Wild Card spot. Cincinnati has surprisingly been one of the better pitching teams in the National League, led by aces Trevor Bauer, Sonny Gray, and this game’s starter, Tyler Mahle.
Their offense, however, has been atrocious. The Reds rank near the bottom in every major offensive category, including dead-last in batting average (.211). Until their bats get going, it’s hard to see them winning a game if their pitching falters.
Cincinnati has only scored 21 runs in its six September games, a measly 3.5 runs per game. While the team still remains alive for a Wild Card spot, the lack of offense will ultimately cost them.
The Cubs sit atop the NL Central, although the Cardinals are right on their heels. With fewer than 20 games remaining in the regular season, the Cubs need to win their winnable games to feel confident about taking the division. That includes this game against the Reds.
Chicago will send Alec Mills to the mound, who heads into this contest with a 3-3 record and a 5.50 ERA. Mills has not been good this season. He’s surrendered 21 runs over his last five starts, including giving up six runs in fewer than four innings of work during his last home start.
In his last start against the Reds, Mills was tagged for four earned runs in just three innings of work.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Reds are 12-15 vs. the NL Central.

The Reds have certainly struggled at the plate this year, but I think their luck will turn around against a pitcher like Alec Mills whose been struggling over the last month.
