Cincinnati at Chicago
Tuesday 04/14 08:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Cincinnati +136 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.36) RESULT: WIN
The Chicago Cubs have not won a World Series in over a century, and have really struggled the last few years. They come into this game a respectable 4-2 to start the season, but one has to wonder about the pitching over the long haul. The Cubs' staff has allowed five runs or more in each of their last four games. After a strong 4-0 start, the Reds have now dropped three straight games. But one thing they have done rather consistently to start the season is swing the bats. Cincinnati has plated five runs or more in five of their seven games, and vs. a Cubs' staff that is allows five or more in every game of late, I think the Reds can hit their way to the win in this one. Play on Cincinnati.
