The red-hot Cincinnati Reds can't be stopped, will the team's epic winning streak reach double digits?
Cincinnati has jumped into first place in the NL Central behind this nine game winning streak, can the team stay hot against the lowly Colorado Rockies at home?
The Reds will start Ben Lively in hopes of getting to 10 straight wins while the Rockies counter seldom used Noah Davis, who is making his fifth big league start dating back to last season.
Here are the odds for Reds vs. Rockies on Tuesday:
Rockies vs. Reds odds, run line and total
Rockies vs. Reds prediction and pick
It's too small of a sample size to make sweeping conclusions about Davis, who has made only four big league appearances spanning less than 13 innings. He has walked nearly four batters per nine innings in that time and has allowed a ton of hard contact. I'm sure there will be some regression, but not against this Reds team that is scorching at the dish.
Cincinnati is eighth in batting average over the last 15 days, which features this nine game winning streak, as the team is hitting .263 as a unit and and are seventh in on-base percentage.
The Reds will also face a Rockies bullpen that is bottom 10 in ERA and may be forced in heavy duty with Davis' inability to pitch deep into games just yet, he has not pitched more than five innings in a start this season.
Meanwhile, Lively will look to stay sharp against a poor Rockies lineup. He is walking less than two batters per nine innings and will put pressure on a Rockies team that doesn't draw a ton of walks (fourth lowest BB%) to make contact.
This is a great matchup for Cincy to keep it rolling on Tuesday, bet on a double digit winning streak.
