Once again you can make a strong argument for either of these teams, as they’re two of the hotter teams in the league. Mahle and Peralta have also been soldi this season. This should be a fun contest. With that said, we’re getting plus money with the Reds, a team that’s won five straight and have won six of their last seven as underdogs. Give me the Reds.
