Cincinnati +160 over Philadelphia
6:40 PM EST. The Reds are going nowhere, but that does not mean that they cannot be a valuable asset down the stretch. Mike Minor (LHP - CIN) will go for the Reds and we are not going to sugarcoat this stiff, but we know what we are getting ourselves into with him on the mound. We don’t care. If you are looking for a positive, Minor’s xERA is lower than his surface number, so hey, it could be worse. The Reds could send Mr. Red out to the bump, mustache and all, and we’d still be all over Cincinnati tonight.
This is a fade on the absurdly priced Noah Syndergaard (PHI - RHP) and the Phillies. Since coming over from the Angels, who have not played a meaningful game of baseball in months, “Thor” has not been good. In his last start against Miami, Syndergaard gave up two runs on six hits over six innings striking out just four. In his first Philly start, “Thor” was tagged for four earned runs on 11 hits over five innings with only two punchouts. Not quite what the Phils were likely hoping for when they traded for him. Strip away the moniker and the reputation and what you have is a struggling pitcher spotting a significant road price. Yes, please.
Cincinnati +160 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 3.20)
