The Cincinnati Reds were unable to generate any offense yesterday and dropped their game to the Chicago Cubs 3-0. Cincinnati managed just five hits in the contest. Tyler Mahle had a nice outing in the loss, giving up three runs on four hits and striking out ten in seven innings. The Reds will turn to Trevor Bauer in today's start. So far this season, he has posted a 3-3 record with a 2.05 ERA and 61 strikeouts. He has pitched well against the Cubs in his career, going 4-1 with a 1.41 ERA.

The Chicago Cubs will look to pick up another win over the Reds and put more distance between the two in the NL Central. The Cubs made the most of their four hits hi, plating three runs in the win. Alec Mills threw six shutout innings, giving up just four hits and striking out six. The Cubs will hand the ball to Yu Darvish for today's start. He has been unstoppable this season, posting a 7-1 record with a 1.44 ERA and 63 strikeouts. Against the Reds, he is 4-2 with a 3.21 ERA and 73 strikeouts.

Cincinnati is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 4-11 in their last 15 games as an underdog. Chicago is 4-9 in their last 13 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as a favorite.

Bauer has lost his last three starts allowing 11 runs in 17.2 innings. He has started once against the Cubs this season, tossing 5.1 innings and giving up three runs. Darvish has been almost unhittable this season. He has started once against the Reds going six shutout innings. Bauer has struggled lately and Darvish has been great... I am taking the better pitcher and an offense that is hitting a bit better.

Play on the Chicago Cubs. This is a 7* play.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
