Betting on Baseball Friday

Vegas _0

It’s late in the year, but there’s still opportunity. Opportunity to find something that matters in the game of baseball that makes it an event for a team that is seemingly playing out the string. You must find a game that stands out, allowing you to make sports predictions.

We have a good spot tonight for one of these games. A game that won’t get a lot of attention because it’s between two poor teams. But when you have a nice lean because you think that it’s an event within a particular organization, it allows you to make accurate baseball predictions.

Brandon Finnegan is the centerpiece the Cincinnati Reds acquired in the Johnny Cueto trade. We’ve already seen them trot John Lamb out front and center to get him exposure as a starter. They’ve now transitioned Finnegan; who was in the Royals pen down the stretch last season leading to their World Series run, to being a starting pitcher. He’ll make his first career start in Milwaukee tonight against the Brewers opposing right hander Zach Davies.

The Reds are a Vegas consensus slight underdog right now (+103). It’s been a long season, but Finnegan will throw well tonight and give the Reds a slight uptick in their long season; a season that has seen them set a Major League record for most consecutive starts by a rookie pitcher; a record that continues this evening.

Take the Cincinnati Reds +103 tonight in Milwaukee.
