Diamondbacks at Reds Over 9 1/2

On a hot, muggy, humid day at homer-friendly Great American Ball Park, I see double-digit runs being scored in this matchup.

These are the two worst bullpens in the National League right now and the starting pitching matchup isn’t strong either with Zack Godley facing Brandon Finnegan.

Godley is getting the call because Shelby Miller imploded this season. Godley is 4-6 with a 3.62 ERA – at the minor league level this season. The Reds are swinging hot bats scoring 30 runs in their last five games

Finnegan has a 4.18 home ERA in nine starts at Great American Ball Park. The Diamondbacks have scored only three runs during the first two games of this series. They have way too many good hitters to stay in a scoring slump especially at such a favorable hitting site.

It’s a plus for the over that Chris Owings is back from the DL while good-field, no-hit Nick Ahmed goes on the DL.
