Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds. The MLB Pick for this contest is Cincinnati -148. The Cubs haven’t won a game since August 4 and Chicago posted a zero win in their last 10. Though the team is sending a solid pitcher in Kyle Hendricks on the mound, the Cubs’ offense will struggle in gaining runs. The Reds have the momentum in this match-up after winning their last two matches and six of their last 10. Moreover, Cincinnati has the advantage of playing at home on Tuesday. The Cincinnati Reds will win predicted at 6-4.
