The Reds will be hoping to improve their slight playoff hopes when they travel to Pittsburgh to play the Pirates. Cincy really needed a mid-season push, but unfortunately have not got anywhere close to that with a 4-6 record in their last 10. In order to catch the Nats and Cubs they will need to go on a monumental run and they will try and start that when they send Trevor Bauer (10-10, 4.06 ERA) to the hill who has had a decent year, despite the record.
This is a critical series as the Reds absolutely need to get a series win in Pittsburgh to keep those slim postseason hopes alive. Bauer, however, might be in a decent spot here to put Cincy in a winning position as the Pirates offense is not that great.
The Pirates, on the other hand, have not much to play for in awhile in the 2019 season, but will look to dampen Cincy’s hopes of a playoff berth in this home series. Pittsburgh has been on a 4-6 run in their last 10, but will look to improve on that when they welcome in the Reds to PNC park.
The Pirates do not have a pitcher listed for this contest, but have not had a great season pitching as they sit 26th in ERA and 26th in WHIP as a unit. The Pirates will likely need to lean on their batting if they want to hang with the hopeful Reds in this game.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Bauer had seven strike-outs against the Padres last time out and I think he can do something similar here even though he took a loss in that contest. The Pirates do not possess a great offensive lineup and I think Bauer can tear through them. Look for a long outing from Bauer here and look for Cincy to add one to the win column.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds ML/ Lean RL
I don’t really know how the bookies will view this game, but I am confident going with the Reds on either the moneyline or runline. I really do expect Bauer to continue off his last start and have a nice outing here at PNC park. Therefore I would go with a bet on the Reds on the moneyline as they are the better team with the (likely) better pitching matchup.
