Reds starting Right-hander Tyler Mahle (7-3, 3.92 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday for the Reds. Mahle, this season has set a career high with 131 strikeouts in 105 2/3 innings. In 11 career starts against the Cubs, Mahle is 4-2 with a 3.47 ERA. He has 18 walks and 70 strikeouts in 62 1/3 innings and gets my support here vs a side my projections estimate is a goof matchup for him.
The Cubs are 0-9 L/9 as a dog after they had more strikeouts than hits last game.
Reds are 4-1 in their last 5 road games.Reds are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 3 of a series.Reds are 5-2 in their last 7 road games vs. a right-handed starter like Davies. Reds are 18-8 in their last 26 vs. National League Central.
Play on the Cincinnati Reds to win
