Pick: Cincinnati Reds -147 (Jimmy Boyd)
The Reds have had Milwaukee’s number, winning 8 of the last 9 meetings, and I expect them to continue their dominance over the Brew Crew at home tonight. The Reds have won 11 of their last 15 overall, and they will gladly welcome the southpaw Wolf to the hill, considering they are 18-6 in their last 24 home games vs. a left-handed starter. The Reds have won all 3 of Bailey’s starts since he returned to the starting rotation, and looking back, they are 7-1 in his last 8 home starts. When these two clubs last faced off a month ago, the Reds crushed the Brewers 10-2 on the road. This is significant because Milwaukee is only 1-12 when revenging a home blowout loss of 8 runs or more over the last 3 seasons, losing in these spots by 4.1 runs on average. Take the Reds.

Pick: San Diego Padres -132 (Rocky Atkinson)
San Diego is 76-53 overall this year and leads the NL West division. Arizona is 25 games behind them with a record of 52-79 this season. San Diego is 8-1 this year as a road favorite of -125 to -150. San Diego is 25-13 against left handed starters this year. San Diego bullpen has a 2.80 ERA overall this year and a 3.18 ERA on the road this season. Arizona bullpen has a 5.93 ERA overall and a 5.56 ERA at home this season. Wade LeBlanc has a 3.86 ERA overall this year. Joe Saunders is 7-14 overall this year, 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA at home and 0-3 with a 7.87 ERA his last 3 starts. We’ll recommend a small play on San Diego tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky
