The line on the Pirates-Reds game was sitting around Cincinnati EVEN to +107 with around 85% of the bets coming in on Pittsburgh. 

The home team has won nine of the last ten in this series with Cincinnati winning half of the last ten meetings between these two teams. The Reds have also won half of their last ten games overall.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates RH Chad Kuhl (4-2, 4.53 ERA) vs. Reds RH Homer Bailey (1-6, 6.11)

Kuhl recorded his second straight no-decision on Thursday after allowing four runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings against San Diego.  

Bailey has taken his lumps of late to the tune of surrendering 24 runs on 41 hits in his last five outings, during which he owns a 1-3 mark while seeing his ERA balloon from 3.68 to 6.11. The 32-year-old surrendered six runs for the second time in three trips to the mound despite keeping the ball in the park for the first time since April 10.

The Reds are 1-10 in Bailey’s last 11 home starts vs. a team with a winning record and 4-17 in his last 21 home starts.
