Tips For Betting On Padres Reds – Reds Look To Capitalize On Four-Straight At Home Versus Padres

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/26/2012 6:22:52 PM

A seven-game win streak helped the Cincinnati Reds gain some ground in the National League Central heading in to last weekend, but with so much time left to go in the regular season and the Pittsburgh Pirates hot in pursuit, there still isn’t much room for error. The Reds will look to maintain their strong play as they get set to host the San Diego Padres in a four-game set to open this sports betting week, and continue to make ground at the top of their division.

The Padres are treading water near the bottom of the NL West, but they have battled around the .500 mark over the past couple of weeks and still cannot be overlooked as a dangerous opponent, especially with Edinson Volquez on the mound. Volquez will get the nod for the series opener having not allowed more than three runs in any of his last six starts, five of which have resulted in San Diego wins. With a pitching staff that ranks second in the majors in ERA, the Reds have some quality arms of their own to rely on, and will counter with Mike Leake for this game. Leake has allowed two earned runs or fewer in six of his last seven starts, but if Volquez plays to his potential the Padres might steal one right off the top.

The Reds should feel even more comfortable with Homer Bailey on the mound for the second game, having won each of the last five games that he has started. Bailey hasn’t given up more than two earned runs in any of those starts, bringing his ERA down from 4.24 to 3.53 while improving to 9-6 on the year. Jason Marquis has struggled with consistency all season, and after earning the decision in each of his last three starts he could be due for the loss.

The biggest problem that Cincinnati has faced all season is its offensive inconsistency, but that shouldn’t be a problem against Kip Wells. Wells is 1-3 with a 4.00 ERA this season, and has given up 10 runs in his last three online betting appearances. Meanwhile, Reds’ starter Bronson Arroyo went the distance with eight strikeouts for a complete game shutout in his last start against San Diego, and should be more than comfortable working in this one.

For as dominant as Arroyo was in his last start against the Padres, Johnny Cueto has been lights out for Cincinnati all season and will be looking for his second win against San Diego in less than a month when he takes the mound for the series finale. Cueto is 12-5 with a 2.23 ERA on the year, and while Ross Ohlendorf is 3-0 for the Padres, his 5.16 ERA is a sportsbook signal that he is overdue for a loss.
