Money Line Pick:
The Reds ace Johnny Cueto has been rock solid this season with 16 QS in 19 appearances. Cueto has allowed 3 runs or less in his last 9 starts and pitched 7 innings of 4 hit ball with 9 strikeouts for a 1-0 win over Washington last Saturday. However the Reds bats have been ice cold losing 10 of last 12 since the break and only scoring 24 runs during that span. The Marlins are red hot winning 9 of their last 11 and are worth a play as a small home dog against Reds squad who are missing both Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips. Take the Miami Marlins +109.
