Cincinnati Reds DFS SPIN
Matt McLean Went 3-for-4 with two RBIs in Tuesday’s loss against the Cubs. McLean has been the Reds’ only good forward over the past five weeks, at least according to Statcast’s numbers. He needs Corbin Carroll to destroy himself to have a realistic shot at Rookie of the Year honors, but his .305/.376/.527 line in 306 plate appearances has given him a good case most years.
Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN
Dansby Swanson He delivered two of the Cubs’ seven homers in a 20-9 rout of the Reds on Tuesday. Cody Bellinger, Mike Tuchman, Nico Horner, Patrick Wisdom and Jacob Amaya also played as the Cubs scored 20 runs for the second time in 20 years. They also did it last year against the Pirates and finished with 21 against the Pirates on April 23rd. It’s Swanson’s ninth career multi-homer game. He is hitting .333 with 5 homers and 14 RBI in 10 games since coming out of IL.

Reds vs Cubs MLB betting predictions
Williamson allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Friday’s win over the Dodgers. The 25-year-old left-hander walked four batters and struck out just two. He will have a 4.48 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 48/27 K/BB in 64 1/3 innings in his start against the Cubs tonight. Behind one opener, Smiley got the win last Friday after allowing one run in 4 1/3 innings in the Cubs’ 3-2 win over the Cardinals. Smyly had posted a 9.43 ERA in his previous five outings, so he hasn’t been great. With the way the ball was flying around the yard last night, I’ll be in control tonight at Wrigley.
MLB Betting Prediction: REDS/CUBS over 9.5
