Philadelphia Phillies (Cliff Lee) -120
Cincinnati Reds (Bronson Arroyo) +115
Is there really a way that we can back LHP Cliff Lee in this spot? It’s true that Lee has been one of the most dominating pitchers that we have seen in the league this year, as he has posted two very strong starts and has nearly finished what he started in both efforts. However, we really aren’t all that sure that he is going to be able to keep this up against a Cincinnati team that really should be ready to bust out at any given moment. The Reds had an atrocious offensive week against the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals. They scored 13 runs in the first game of the series in the Gateway to the West, only to go on to score a total of just seven runs in their next four games. RHP Bronson Arroyo has figured out how to keep his team in games, and we know that most of the starting pitchers have done just that for the Reds as well this season. We really think that Arroyo is going to figure out how to keep Cincinnati in this one as well, and in the end, this will be a game that comes right down to the wire when push comes to shove. If that’s the case, we’ll take the Reds’ bats to figure out how to eke out a run or two here and there to ultimately go on to win this one at home.
