Cincinnati is the better team and I look for them to show that when facing the Tribe. I feel they will be too much for Cleveland to handle.
Luis Castillo has not been great overall, but he has been better lately. I look for him to toss a good game and for the Reds to get to Mejia.
I like the Reds on the moneyline.
