The Cincinnati Reds will have Luke Weaver taking the mound. Weaver has struggled this season with a 6.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. His performances have been inconsistent, and he has given up a significant number of runs. This could contribute to a high-scoring game.
The Reds have a strong hitting lineup with players like Spencer Steer and Lane Thomas leading the way. They have shown the ability to generate runs and have a good chance of contributing to the overall run total in the game.
The Reds have a few players dealing with injuries, but their depth and ability to find replacements should not significantly impact their offensive production.
The Washington Nationals will send Jake Irvin to the mound. Irvin has a 4.72 ERA and 1.49 WHIP, which suggests that he may give up runs against the potent Reds' lineup.
The Nationals have struggled offensively this season, but they have the potential to put up runs against a struggling pitcher like Luke Weaver. If they can capitalize on scoring opportunities, it could contribute to a higher run total.
The Nationals have dealt with some injuries, which could impact their offensive output. However, they have players capable of stepping up and contributing to the overall run total.
Considering the pitching struggles of Luke Weaver and Jake Irvin, as well as the hitting potential of both teams, we predict that the total runs scored in this game will surpass 10. With the Reds' strong lineup and the Nationals' ability to capitalize on scoring opportunities, we expect an offensive showcase with plenty of runs on the board. The Reds have won the last 6 games with Weaver on the mound but has been allowing a lot of runs and the Nationals have lost 7 of the last 8 games with Irvin as a starter with 10 or more runs in 6 of those 8 games.
Pick: Over 10 Runs
