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

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Reds will go for an impressive road sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, June 6th. St. Louis is now in third place in the National League Central at 31-28, while Cincinnati will enter at 27-29 for fourth place in the division. The game will get started at 2:15 p.m. ET and can be watched on ESPN+.

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

Moneyline pick: Cardinals -129

The Cardinals are rolling with John Gant on the mound, and he has been a really good pitcher so far this season. Through 10 starts, he has a 4-3 record and 1.60 ERA. Gant has not allowed a run in each of his last two outings, which combined for 11 innings of scoreless baseball. The Cardinals need to a win to avoid a sweep and put an end to a four-game losing streak, and they have the right guy on the mound to get it done.

Player Prop: Dylan Carlson O.5 RBIs (+185)

Carlson has tallied 11 hits with 6 RBIs in his last 10 games. The rookie boasts St. Louis’s highest batting average (.277) and ranks fourth in RBI’s with 26. Carlson is also third in total runs scored with 31, so these are pretty favorable odds against a Reds team that’s given up the third-most runs (272) in MLB.
