Reds vs Dodgers Free Pick

June 10, 2017

Southern California hosts Major League Baseball on Saturday night when the Cincinnati Reds visit the Los Angeles Dodgers in a National League showdown. The current line on top sportsbooks has Los Angeles favored at -240, Cincinnati at +210 and the over/under run total on 8.

Entering this game, Cincinnati is 29-31 overall and 10-16 on the road. The Reds are 5-5 in their last 10 games played. Los Angeles is 34-28 overall and 20-13 at home. The Dodgers are 5-5 in their last 10 games played.

Justin Turner returned to the Dodgers lineup on Friday from the disabled list and it seemed he had never been out injured. After missing the past 19 games with a strained right hamstring, Turner hit a two-run homer to help the Dodgers to a 7-2 win.

The loss was Cincinnati’s seventh straight at Dodger Stadium. Billy Hamilton the speedy leadoff hitter for the Reds is 0-for-14 over his past 14 official at bats including 0-for-4 Friday, but is the leader in baseball in stolen bases with 28.

Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart has reached base in 31 consecutive games and is batting .342.

Cincinnati will send Asher Mojciechowski to the mound on Saturday. The Reds right-hander is 1-0 with an ERA of 4.50. Los Angeles will counter with Alex Wood. The Dodgers southpaw is 6-0 with an ERA of 1.69.

On Monday Mojciechowski started for just the second time for Cincinnati but did not receive a decision against St. Louis. The right-hander allowed just two runs during six innings.

Wood will make his first pitching appearance since going on the DL with an inflammation to his sternum May 26. In May, Wood was the Pitcher of the Month in the National League and has not given up a run over his past four starts that covered 25 plus innings.

Wood replaces Kenta Maeda, who was moved to the Dodgers bullpen. Wood is 2-0 with an ERA of 2.30 in three games versus Cincinnati during his career.

Cincinnati outfielder Adam Duvall did not play Friday because of illness but should return Saturday.

Los Angeles put Sergio Romo a right-handed pitcher on the DL for a sprained ankle.

Cincinnati is 1-6 in its past 7 games versus opponents from the NL West.

Los Angeles is 15-7 in its past 22 games played.

With this free pick, we like Los Angeles to win.
