(MLB) Cincinnati vs. NY Mets, 07/31/2021 7:10 PM, Score: 4 - 5
Total: 8.50 | -115.00 Over
Result: Win
This is an 8* on the OVER

Mets’ home games have been REALLY low scoring in 2021. You’re looking at just 6.2 total runs being scored per contest. Last night was a little higher scoring than usual though as the Reds spoiled the season debut of Carlos Carrasco. Much of the way it looked like your typical game at Citi Field as the Reds took a 3-1 lead into the ninth. But then the scoring doubled in the final inning and the game ended up 6-2. Joey Votto has homered in seven straight games for Cincinnati. The Reds are averaging 6.3 runs over their last seven games and have scored at least five times in eight straight games. Rich Hill, recently acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay, will be making his second start as a Met on Saturday. The first went okay as he permitted three runs in five innings. The Mets won the game 5-4, which would be enough runs to cash an Over today. The Reds, whose pitching is normally not good, will send out Wade Miley. Don’t be fooled by his ERA as he’s actually given up 21 hits in his last three starts as well as 10 walks. None of the Reds last six games have stayed Under (two have pushed). Play on OVER
