2 units on Game Total OVER 7.5 -120 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Reds certainly have their backs to the wall coming home down 2-0 to the Phillies needing a big effort in game 3. The Reds encouraging news is they came back after getting no hits in the first game to plate four runs vs another tough Philly starter in Roy Oswalt. They will have a decided advantage to score some runs in this one as they are 11-2 at home since mid June against lefthanders, pounding out 5.4 runs a game. The Phillies bats have been roaring to close the season and have extended it right into the post-season. The Phil's have produced 43 runs in their last six games, so better than seven a contest. The Phillies have been racking up the runs as a playoff favorite, now at 6-1-1 to the OVER in their last eight. The Reds are at 21-6 to the OVER in Cueto's last 27 starts. This one goes OVER the total.
