The San Francisco Giants are looking like contenders based off of their hot start to the season, and they will look to keep that hot start going this Wednesday, as they take on the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ballpark.
San Francisco Giants
The Ginats should be coming into this game full of confidence, as they have won their last 3 games which included the first two games of this series against the Reds, so they certainly will believe they can pick up this win as slight road favorites here on Wednesday.
The Giants pitching certainly has been the main reason for their success so far, but the batting lineup has been decent as well putting up a .315 on base percentage which they have been able to turn into 179 runs which ranks in the top half of the league.
Kevin Gausman will head to the mound here and he has been fantastic so far this year coming in here with a 3-0 record and a 1.84 ERA and he has really had his strikeout stuff going with 59 strikeouts so far this year.
The Reds have been slipping in recent times going 2-4 in their last 6, so they will be hungry to avoid the sweep here and will be looking to get back to that .500 mark which not many people thought they would be at, at this time of the season.
The Reds have been mildly surprising so far, and they have had some success because of their bats, as they rank in the top 5 of most of the important batting statistics like OBP and average.
Wade Miley is the projected starter in this spot and he enters the contest with decent enough statistics with a 4-3 record and a 3.69 ERA, but he will be looking to bounce back off of a rough outing last time out in Colorado, but many will give him a pass for that performance because it as in Colorado, and because the start before that he had no-hit the Cleveland Indians.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The San Francisco Giants are the better team here, and they get a nice advantage on the mound, as I have like what I have seen out of Kevin Gausman this year and believe he is up for the challenge that the Reds batting lineup presents.
The Giants have also been really disciplined at the plate, and have hit well in clutch situations and at the current price of -125 it seems like the road favorite is the way to go here.
