The Cincinnati Reds will host the Los Angeles Dodgers starting Tuesday at 6:40 p.m. This will be the first of a three-game series, with games two and three starting at 6:40 p.m. and 12:35 p.m., respectively.

The Reds are coming off getting swept by the Milwaukee Brewers this past weekend.

This set the Reds back greatly in their quest to get out of last place in the division. They are now fourteen games back from both the Cardinals and Brewers, who share the first-place spot in the NL Central.

The Dodgers also struggled at home versus the Cleveland Guardians, where they only managed to win one of their three games in this past weekend’s series. They still are holding on to first place in the NL West by 0.5 games. The San Diego Padres are close behind in the race for first place.

Let’s look ahead at this National League matchup between the Cincinnati Reds and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Dodgers vs. Reds Betting Odds & Data

The Dodgers will be the 1.5 run favorite in all three games against the Reds because although the Reds have home-field advantage, the Dodgers are the better team by far.

The Dodgers’ record is 40-25, including 20-13 on the road. The Reds, on the other hand, have an overall record of 23-43 with a home record of 12-20. In the past ten matchups, the Reds are 3-7 with one series win in that time frame. The Dodgers are 5-5 with two series wins in that same span.

Expected Pitching Matchup

Tyler Mahle is expected to get the start for the Reds, and he will face up against Tony Gonsolin, who is perfect this season. Tyler Mahle is 2-5 with a 4.46 ERA and 86 strikeouts. Gonsolin is 8-0 with an impressive 1.42 ERA and 60 strikeouts.

Last time out, Mahle got the no decision even though he had a spectacular outing going nine innings, giving up zero runs on three hits with twelve strike outs to his name. He will look to replicate that performance on Tuesday night.

Gonsolin got the win a week ago in his last time out after he went 6.1 innings giving up no runs on one hit. He also walked two batters and struck out nine Los Angeles Angels batters.

Expected Outcome

The Reds missed out on an opportunity to extend the Brewers’ cold streak, but instead, they got swept and now take on an even tougher challenge against the Dodgers.

I want to believe that the Reds will be able to cover the 1.5-run spread in any of the three games, and they very well could, but the profitable move would be to take the Dodgers with the spread for all three games.

If the Reds can keep the scores low, they may be able to sneak out a win, but I would bet on the Dodgers, who have the second-best record in the National League, to take care of business in Cincinnati.
