MLB Friday

7-8 +590

Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs
The Reds are not well, yet, and they will visit Wrigley Field for day time matinee. The match up features Reds right handed Mike Leake. He is inducing grounders with pretty high grounders to fly ball ratio, but Mike was knocked out at Washington last time out. Leake should pitch better in Chicago as he pitched quality against the Cubs at home giving up 2 runs on 8 hits going 7 innings  Facing the Reds will be Carlos Villanueva the pride of Santiago. Carlos is throwing some nasty stuff however he is giving up the long ball. That's something to watch out for, but Carlos too is coming off a bad outing and likely to improve in this spot. Given scenario and the money line this should be pretty tight. Their recent matches, past 9 games, have all come within 2 runs  The line has swung both ways.  The Cubs on a roll. Chicago coming off 2 series win, against San Diego and Miami, looks to take revenge on the Reds. Cincinnati has lost their last two series, against St Louis and Washington, and their road game has been weak. However Mike Leake has been money against the Cubs and the Reds are playing better day games than the Cubs. Let's count on Villanueva to give up that long ball here and Chicago pen can collapse in any game. Going Reds.

CINCINNATI REDS -108 for 1 unit(W)
I hope you guys took advantage of +102 closing line.
