The New York Mets and the Cincinnati Reds meet in MLB action from Great American Ballpark on Wednesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


New York is listed as a -165 road favorite while Cincinnati is a +140 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 9 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Justin Verlander will start for the Mets here and is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 5 strikeouts this season. Hunter Greene will start for the Reds and is 0-2 with a 3.74 ERA with 47 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Cincinnati’s 7-5 win over the Mets on Tuesday snapped New York’s four-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.


New York is 13-6 in their last 19 Wednesday games and 3-7 in their last 10 games against a team with a right-handed starter while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 game two matchups. Cincinnati is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 7-18 in their last 25 games against the NL East while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record.


I’m backing the over here. I just don’t know if I’m ready to back Justin Verlander in a spot like this in just his second game back and even if the Reds don’t get to him I think they’ll get to New York’s bullpen. On the other side, Hunter Greene’s biggest struggles have come at home and I think the Mets could do some damage offensively themselves here so give me the over.
