St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams are looking to gain ground on the Brewers. Milwaukee has yet to falter and they have been 1st in that division for a while now.
The Reds are the better team and I think they will show that on Sunday.
I do not have much confidence in the Cardinals based on their starting pitcher. Oviedo has yet to be effective this year and he has not got a win yet. I look for Sonny Gray to bounce back and pitch a good game in this one.
I will go with the Reds on the run line Sunday.
