Top MLB Betting Odds & Pick for Cardinals vs. Reds
You will rarely see me on multiple underdogs. But the Reds are calling my name. It’ll be Graham Ashcraft on the mound for Cincinnati. Through four starts, he’s 3-0 with a 1.14 ERA. He also has a WHIP of .85 through 23.2 innings pitched.
Even analytically, he’s been above average with a 4.03 xFIP. He’s earning 61.1% of ground balls over the last 30 days while keeping his BABIP down to .197.
Ashcraft will have to be careful with Nolan Gorman and Paul Goldschmidt, but other than that, no other batters has been all that consistent against righties for the Cardinals in the last 30 days.
On the other hand, Dakota Hudson will start for the Cardinals with his 4.50 xFIP in the last 30 days. He’s got a 2.76 ERA but hasn’t been that dominant analytically. Ultimately, Hudson is getting a high amount of grounders but the Reds are only hitting 39.9% of grounders as a lineup in the last 30 days.
Instead, the Reds are hitting 26% of line drives while Hudson allows 25.6% of line drives in the last 30 days. Therefore, I like the Reds in this one. I’ll play it safe with the runline.
Bet: Reds +1.5 (-130 at DraftKings)
