For this matchup, we predict that the over of 9.5 runs is the pick. Here's why:

Both teams have been relatively consistent in scoring runs, and with hitters like Nolan Gorman and Elly De La Cruz leading their respective teams in home runs, there's potential for offensive fireworks.

Additionally, the starting pitchers, Lance Lynn for the Cardinals and Nick Lodolo for the Reds, while solid, have also shown vulnerability at times, suggesting that both offenses could capitalize on scoring opportunities.

Considering the offensive capabilities of both teams and the potential for runs to be scored throughout the game, the over of 9.5 runs seems like a reasonable pick.

Pick: Over 9.5 Runs
