Diamondbacks vs Reds Betting Outlook

The Diamondbacks were shut out on five hits in Sunday’s loss to the Pirates. They have scored only one run in their last 20 innings.

Ketel Marte’s 16-game hitting streak ended as he went 0 for 4.

The Reds’ one-run loss to the Nationals on Sunday ended in abrupt fashion when Nick Senzel was picked off first base by catcher Keibert Ruiz. Shortstop Kyle Farmer and right fielder Aristides Aquino made key errors for Cincinnati.

The Reds placed reliever Vladimir Gutierrez (right forearm soreness) prior to Sunday’s game.

This is first meeting of 2022 between the teams after the Diamondbacks won five of six games last season, including sweeping a three-game series in Cincinnati. Arizona left fielder David Peralta went 9 for 21 (.429) with one double, one triple, two home runs and 12 RBIs.

Diamondbacks vs Reds Prediction

Neither starting pitcher comes into this game with much momentum. The lean goes to the experienced Bumgarner as a slight underdog over the hard-throwing Greene, who is quite talented but a work in progress.

Pick: Diamondbacks ML (+105)
