The Cleveland Indians will be looking for another win as they host the Cincinnati Reds this Wednesday. The Indians are 34-32 after beating the Reds in their last game. Meanwhile, the Reds are 29-36 after losing to the Indians yesterday. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records in this game.

Reds Look To Get Out Of NL Central Basement

The Cincinnati Reds have won 29 of their first 65 games. In addition, the team is still in last place in the NL Central as the team is currently one game behind the Pittsburgh Pirates for fourth place. To make matters worse, the team enters this game off of a heartbreaking loss in extra innings yesterday as Cincinnati’s offense only managed to score one run. Now, the Reds will turn to Anthony DeSclafani as the starting pitcher for this contest. So far, in his first 12 starts, he is 3-4 with a 4.70 ERA. If the Reds plan on winning this game, look for him to pitch well on the road.

The Cincinnati Reds are led by first baseman Joey Votto who has struggled last season. Last season, Votto suffered a massive drop in power as he only hit 12 home runs along with 67 RBIs. This was especially surprising considering the fact that he had at least 29 home runs in each of the previous three seasons. However, he has somehow been even worse this season as he only has a .254 batting average along with five home runs and 14 RBIs. If the Reds plan on becoming competitive in the NL Central, he will need to play better.

Indians Look For Another Home Win

The Cleveland Indians have only won 34 of their first 66 games. However, the team has played better lately and has managed to win three of its last four games. In addition, the team is 20-16 at home this season as the team has looked significantly more competitive at home than it does in road games. Now, the Indians will turn to Zach Plesac as the starting pitcher for this contest. Plesac has been fantastic so far this season with a 1-1 record along with an impressive 1.86 ERA. The Indians have struggled with their pitching this season and he has injected some life in the team’s staff which has helped the Indians turn their season around.

The Cleveland Indians are led by third baseman Jose Ramirez who was unbelievable last season. Last season, Ramirez hit 39 home runs along with 105 RBIs as he was rightfully named an AL All-Star. However, Ramirez is also a fantastic contact hitter as his batting average has not been below .270 in each of the last three seasons. However, he has struggled so far this season as he only has a .200 batting average with only four home runs. Shockingly, he could be in danger of being sent to the minor leagues if this level of play persists.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Simply put, this game is in Cleveland and I believe that the Indians are the better of these two teams by a decent margin. Cleveland has started to heat up over the last week and is a solid home team while the Reds have struggled on the road so far this season. I expect this game to be close throughout but I think the Indians will do just enough to squeak out of this game with a victory.

Prediction: Cleveland Indians

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Since both of these teams possess below average pitching staffs, I have to lean to the over in this game. Furthermore, both teams still possess underrated lineups so I can see both teams scoring at least four runs. I can see this game being somewhere in the realm of 6-4 so I will recommend the over in this game.

Prediction: Over 9.5
