Moneyline pick, best player prop for Reds vs. Cardinals on Sunday

We go over some of the best betting options for Sunday’s matchup between the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals.

The St. Louis Cardinals enter Sunday looking to complete a sweep of the Cincinnati Reds, a team that has gone cold on offense. Cincy was shut out on Saturday thanks to another strong start from John Gant, who held the Reds scoreless through 6 IP with 5 Ks. If the Reds can’t bounce back, this will be their seventh straight loss. Let’s take a look at the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Reds vs. Cardinals, 2:15 p.m. ET, ESPN+

Moneyline pick: Cardinals -139

The Reds offense has been inconsistent and this pitching matchup favors the Cards heavily with Jack Flaherty taking on Luis Castillo. The Reds ace has struggled at times this season, boasting a 6.05 ERA through four starts. Flaherty has only allowed 3 ER over his past three starts after getting lit up on Opening Day by the Reds. The thing is, Castillo got more lit up in that game by the Cards. If this is a similar scenario, I’ll lean on the home team rather than the team that can’t score runs right now.
