The Cincinnati Reds and the Philadelphia Phillies meet on Tuesday again from Cincy. All MLB trends for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Reds are running away with their decision, but came no closer to clinching that playoff spot in a loss to the Phillies. They only scored two runs on six hits for the game and wasted another quality effort by ace pitcher Johnny Cueto in the process. Tonight Cincinnati will start Mat Latos who has won three of his last four decisions. Latos has just allowed 150 hits in 168 innings of work good enough for a 3.79 ERA.
This season has been largely a disappointing one for the Phillies, but after a win on Monday they have hopes of finishing the season out strong. They did enough with the bats to give Tyler Cloyd all of the runs he would need. Cloyd pitched seven innings of quality baseball for his first major-league win. Tonight Philadelphia will start Kyle Kendrick was won his last four starts. In 125 innings of work Kendrick has given up 125 hits.
Cincinnati is 27-11 in their last 38 games against a team with a losing record, 15-7 in their last 22 home games, and 6-2 in Latos’ last eight starts. Philadelphia is 5-1 in their last six road games, 8-3 in their last 11 games overall, and 3-7 in Kendrick’s last 10 starts against the NL Central. Philadelphia has won six in a row in Cincinnati.
The Reds did not look good with the bats on Monday, but do not expect that to last long. Give us the Reds as moneyline favorites at home at online sports books.
