Reds vs. Diamondbacks odds, run line, and total
Reds vs. Diamondbacks prediction and pick
The last two games between the Reds and Diamondbacks have both been offensive shootouts, with a combined total of 33 runs being scored. But, today I think we should go the opposite direction and bet the UNDER instead.
He has been fantastic through his first 15.1 innings pitched in the Majors, allowing just five earned runs for an ERA of 2.93. Another strong performance today will help us cash this UNDER bet.
Let's also be honest about the state of these two offenses, the Diamondbacks included. Yes, they've been hot the past two games but both teams are missing the offensive magic that led them to strong first halves of the season.
In fact, since the All-Star break the two teams rank just 18th and 20th in OPS. Neither team has performed as well as they did early in the season.
So, for all of those reasons, I think the UNDER 9 at +100 is a great value bet to place.
