Without Joey Votto, the Reds’ offense exploded in a 9-3 victory over the visiting Chicago Cubs. Don’t expect this type of play to keep up on Tuesday. Overall, the Under is 4-1 in Reds’ last 5 overall.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Cubs LH Travis Wood (7-6, 4.62 ERA) vs. Reds RH Johnny Cueto (8-6, 1.99)
Wood is coming off one of his rockiest outings of the season when he lasted only 3 2/3 innings and allowed three runs and seven hits Wednesday at Boston. Expect him to bounce back and perform better.
Cueto is also looking to bounce back coming off his first loss in almost a month despite only allowing three runs and seven hits over seven innings. Furthermore, the Under is 7-1-1 in Cuetos’ last 9 home starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5.
