Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The Phillies have to start playing better if they wish to stay atop their division. This will not be an easy matchup with the Reds.
I do feel the Phillies are the better team and I look for them to bounce back after some losses to the Dodgers. Also, I like how they have been playing at home lately.
This is a very good pitching matchup. I look for Wheeler to keep up his good stuff and get his team a win.
I like the Phillies on the moneyline in this one.
