What is the Head to Head Record for the Reds vs. Cubs? Betting Trends

The Reds-Cubs series has been pretty evenly divided in terms of wins last season.  In 2021, Cincinnati did have a nice edge in the series.  Both clubs are a few games below the .500 mark.


Friday's game has everybody loving the Cubs.  Consensus cappers were backing Chicago at 100% and the betting public at a clip of around 76%.

Hunter Greene is 0-4 with a 4.68 ERA.  He's yielded four runs and six runs, respectively, in his last two starts. We're certainly not about to back Cincinnati here.  But the books have brought the line down from -170 to -145, practically begging gamblers to bet on the Cubs.  That scares us.

Justin Steele for the Cubs is is 6-1 with a 2.20 ERA for the Cubs.  That is fantastic considering the Cubs lackluster record.  He was initially slated to start on Saturday.

Steele tossed six shutout innings on Sunday in a no-decision against the Phillies and suffered his first loss of the season in his prior start.

Steele typically pitches into the 6th and 7th inning.

But that line move really makes us nervous here.

The key game here will be Saturday night as this one is going to be broadcast nationally.
