Reds Line Move Indicates Avoiding the Cubs

Reds Line Move Indicates Avoiding the Cubs

Our play on the Brewers-Phillies OVER won big earlier in the day, so we tend to avoid a double header in a single day.  Instead we will issue a bit of a warning in light of the Cubs going 8-2 in the last ten against the Reds.  Just be careful taking Chicago this evening.
