About Cincinnati Reds
Reed is winless in six major-league starts but is coming off his best performance. He didn’t allow an earned run in six innings against Atlanta on July 19 when he gave up five hits and two unearned runs in a no-decision. However, that game was against the worst team in baseball and by no means should the Giants starting lineup be compared to the Braves. Reed has served up nine homers in just 30 1/3 innings and opposing hitters are batting .311 against him.

Reds vs Giants Pick
Will Cain turn it around tonight? I don’t think so. He is coming off one of his worst efforts, when he was bombed for three home runs in just 2 1/3 innings in an 11-7 loss at Boston last Wednesday. He gave up six hits and five runs to the Red Sox, dropping his record to 1-6 while raising his ERA to 5.88.
Reds rookie Cody Reed, who has had troubles of his own this season. The left-hander is still searching for his first big-league win, as he is 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in six starts. I don not understand why the total is not double digits but, I am happy it isn’t. Taking the over. This could be Cain’s last start for the Giants as they are in the market for another pitcher for a playoff run.
Live betting tip. If Cain gets to the 75 pitch count. Hammer the other side. I don’t care if the Giants are up 10-0 at that point. I will hammer the Reds +9 runs.
