MLB Tuesday

1-0 last selection. YTD 47-30-1 +30.12 units

Los Angeles Dodgers at Cincinnati Reds.
Tonight's match up will feature two good young arms, Chad Billingsly and Johnny Cueto, both right handed pitchers making themselves known. Johnny Cueto with 79 innings under his belt has 50% quality starts, 62.5 at home and 3 wins out of last 4 starts. There is a pitch count issue along with long balls he's given up in last 3 starts.
Chad has thrown 77 innings, 40% quality starts, little better on the road at 50%, but not all is his doing with lacking run support. Dodgers are sliding and they're 13-23 away, 3-7 in last 10 games where as Reds are golden at home 21-14. So my thoughts on this game? Dodgers even with their consecutive losses and bad road record have the better product on the filed and Reds being offense oriented team which has cooled off has too many holes in their defense. Reds does hold the big bat advantage, but that's a risk I will have to take.

DODGERS +107 for 1 unit(W)

Didn't lose a beat.
1-0 +1.07 units
