Arizona vs Cincinnati Probable Pitchers

Reds right-hander Tyler Mahle appears to be finding his footing following a dreadful start to 2022. Four of his last five starts registered as quality starts. In those last five starts he’s showing a 4.34 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. He’s struck out 32 while walking only 11 over the past 29 innings pitched.

Mahle shares the NL led with 12 games started. He led the league last season with 33 starts.

I thought Tyler Mahle would break out and take that next step for the past 2 years. He fools me each year. He’s elite in spurts. Bad in spurts. But most a little above average?

In six home starts, Mahle is 0-3 with a 5.60 ERA. In day games, Mahle is 13-18 with a 4.33 ERA.

Arizona’s Ketel Marte is 2-for-2 (1.000) with a homer and three RBI off of Mahle. David Peralta is 1-for-3 (.333).

Diamondbacks vs Reds Prediction

Arizona has proven to be a good road play on the runline this season, going 17-10 against the spread. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is a solid home over play, going 18-9 on the total in home games.

As for the game itself, while Mahle appears to be finding a rhythm, Davies looks to be completely out of tune. He has pitched well against Cinci in the past but Arizona was 1-4 SU in the past five games. Considering that they were playing the Pirates and the Reds, that’s not good news.

Pick: Cincinnati Reds ML (-140)
