Two NL teams essentially on the opposite end of the standings will face each other in the hitter friendly Great American Ball Park.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Bud Norris was acquired from the Atlanta Braves earlier in the season in effort to help subsidize the loss of Clayton Kershaw, who hit the DL and is still working his way back.
Norris is certainly no Kershaw- no one is- but he does have a respectable 4.26 ERA on the year, despite a 6-9 record that can be attributed to a poor Braves’ team he played for.
Corey Seager is already a star in just his rookie season, having slugged 21 homers to date and hitting at a .309 clip while providing good defense.
He’s helped the offense off-set the downturn to Yasiel Puig’s career and give them a new exciting bat to follow.
Justin Turner and Adrien Gonzalez help insulate Seager in the lineup.
Cody Reed is a highly thought of prospect within the Reds organization, some even saying he’d leapfrogged top pitcher prospect Robert Stephenson.
However, the young lefty has left much to be desired in his first MLB action, going 0-7 this year with a 7.36 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP.
The Reds’ offense has a decent make-up, led by the incumbent Joey Votto and his perennial strong batting average.
On the season, he owns a .303 clip and 19 homers- the dingers which places him second on the club behind the struggling Adam Duvall.
Gone is Jay Bruce and his power bat, as he was dealt at the deadline to the Mets.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Los Angeles is 29-28 in away games
- the Dodgers are 7-3 in their last 10 games
- Cincy is 28-30 at home this year
- Reds’ Billy Hamilton leads the league in steals with 51
Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Billy Hamilton is coming off a couple missed days with an ailment, which makes you wonder how aggressive he would be on the base-paths should he get aboard.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers -1.5
The pitching matchup isn’t stellar, but I trust Bud Norris much more than Reed at this point.
