CINCINNATI REDS -200
I'm taking the Cincinnati Reds tonight vs the terrible Houston Astros. I know the line is high but you have to understand that it is high for a reason. That reason is that the Reds are a far superior team. Their offense includes the likes of All-Star Brandon Phillips, hot hitting Ryan Ludwick, super rookie and RBI machine Frazier and Stubbs who can hit a HR and steal a base or two. Mike Leake is pitching for the Reds and he has been good for them this year. But the real story is the bullpen of the Reds. Once the Reds have a lead its been pretty much game over for the opposition. Aroldis Chapman has been a man among men when closing out games. If he doesn't throw 100mph people think theres something wrong with him that night. Add in Ondrusek, Marshall, Arredondo and former stud closer Broxton and you have a lights out bullpen staff. Take Cincinnati Reds and thank me 2marrow morning.
