There was a bevy of runs scored on Monday night in the series opener between the Pirates and Reds with Cincinnati scoring an 11-6 win. Cincinnati was a -232 favorite with Sonny Gray on the hill and the loss was Pittsburgh’s 9th in a row. Despite being in such a slump, oddsmakers are giving the Bucs more of a fighting chance on Tuesday, setting Pittsburgh at just +105 ‘dogs.
Cincinnati put up a 10 run 2nd inning on Monday as Pirates starter Alex McRae went just 1.1 IP.That leaves a very taxed bullpen for Tuesdays starter Joe Musgrove. The right-hander gave up 5ER including 3HR to St. Louis in his last start. There’s optimism for Musgrove in this start though as he’s shut out Cincinnati over 2 appearances (9 IP) in 2019.
The Reds continued their up-and-down season with a whopping 11 run, 13 hit output. Cincinnati manufactured those runs too as Jose Iglesias had the lone home run for the Reds. The win was Cincinnati’s 5th in the last 7 games which has pushed them to within 6.5 games of the NL Central lead. That being said the Reds have been held to 3 runs or less in 5 of the last 8 games.
Cincinnati seems like they should be higher priced favorites on Tuesday considering Pittsburgh has dropped 9 in a row. Is the lower line due to Tanner Roark getting the start for the Reds? The right-hander gave up 7ER on July 13th – but that was pitching at Coors Field. Roark has held opponents to 2ER or less in 5 of the last 7.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Pirates are 5-16 last 21 overall
- Pirates are 5-2 in Musgrove’s last 7 starts
- Pirates are 4-11 in Musgrove’s last 15 road starts
- Reds are 1-5 in Roark’s last 6 home starts
- Reds are 19-7 last 26 H2H meetings
