Chicago at Cincinnati
Tuesday 07/21 07:10 PM Eastern
1 unit on Cincinnati +110 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.1) RESULT: LOSS
Cincinnati has a winning home record and the offensively challenged Cubs are in town, 23rd in baseball in runs scored. The Reds are 38-14 at home against a team with a winning record. Cincinnati clobbered three home runs in a 5-4 win in Monday's series opener. The Reds have homered in all four games since the All-Star break, with seven total long balls. Reds rookie Raisel Iglesias has been much better at home than on the road, going 1-0 with a 4.35 ERA in three starts at the Great American Ball Park, and Chicago is 1-4 versus a right-handed starter. Chicago has Jason Hammel going, but the Cubs are 1-5 in his last six starts, plus 2-11 when he faces a team with a losing record. With the Reds 35-16 in their last 51 home games, grab home field. Play Cincinnati.
