So far the Reds have been true to form, bringing up the rear in the NL Central. They were supposed to be right there with Pittsburgh but the Pirates are not playing fair thus far. The power has to pick up for the Reds to be more competitive. They have potential in that area.
Luis Castillo has potential but we did not see much of it in his opening start against Washington. The only good sign was that he controlled his walks but that might have made him more hittable.
For a team that traded its best player and best pitcher in the offseason the Pirates are surprisingly perky early in the season. They have been scoring a lot of runs thanks to starting the season against moribund Detroit.
Trevor Williams could not have been much better in his season debut as he did not give up a hit over 6 innings against the Tigers. He worked his way around 5 walks though so he is far from perfect. Tread carefully.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
I am expecting Pittsburgh will be a small favourite in this spot. They are playing good ball and are at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: PIT ML
Of course there is the division dog angle with the Reds but until they start hitting they are a tough team to back. Their pitching is not good.
