MLB Betting Update: Cincinnati's Arroyo forced to throw glorified batting practice

04.18.2017     10:17 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

We blogged yesterday about how depleted the Cincinnati Reds' starting pitching staff was. If you didn't already notice, veteran Bronson Arroyo, who last threw July 15, 2014 (!), is a part of the current rotation. Arroyo's average fastball in his first two starts was 83 and 84 mph. He went so far as to admit he no longer has the stuff to get MLB batters out. Tonight, he faces the Baltimore Orioles who are one of the league's best when it comes to hitting the ball out of the park. Even with a slight wind blowing in, it’s hard not to recommend some sort of anti-Reds bet. Perhaps a play on the Orioles OVER 5 team total.


“Bronson is 2 1/2 years removed from competing,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “He needs time to settle in. I’m sure the crispness will come in time, as will his velocity.”

“I feel like I don’t have enough to finish guys,” Arroyo said. “My (velocity) obviously isn’t as good as it used to be. Right now, I feel like they have to put the ball in play to get outs.”



 




MLB Betting: Cincinnati Reds could be great OVER bet this week

04.17.2017     10:20 AM     View Original Blog
Through 13 games, the Cincinnati Reds rank third in the National League with a 3.49 ERA. That number is likely to climb significantly in the weeks to come. The bullpen, which has greatly exceeded expectations (2.65 ERA) has thrown an MLB-leading 57.2 innings. As a result, the starting staff, has tossed a MLB-low 58.1 innings. And the rotation just got even thinner following the temporary loss of Brandon Finnegan (10-day DL). Heading into the season, the Reds were already without Anthony DeSclafani (60-day DL) and Homer Bailey (60-day DL). And Rookie Davis was recently placed on the DL with a bruised forearm. That leaves Scott Feldman, Bronson Arroyo, and rookie Amir Garrett to carry the load. A stiff challenge awaits with back-to-back home series against Baltimore and the Chicago Cubs. Look for the Reds to trend "over" the total moving forward.
