Both teams are looking to improve their standings, making this an exciting game for fans and bettors alike. For today’s MLB free picks, this game presents an intriguing opportunity to assess both teams’ current form and make informed betting decisions.

The Chicago Cubs are in the middle of their campaigns and currently have a win-loss record of 29-30. Recently they have been somewhat poor, having only one win in their five last games. Their players’ batting average is still at .227 which means that they have scored 255 runs and have attempted 444 hitting. In pitching, Javier Assad will be on the starting roster for the Cubs. The chances of the Cubs winning in this game will therefore rely on the kind of performance he is going to display.

Cincinnati Reds have also struggled in this season with their win/loss record set at 25-33. Their current five-game performance indicates that they are 2-3, with a batting average of .218, 237 runs, and 408 hits. Hunter Greene will start as the pitcher of the Reds. Greene plays for the baseball team and at the time of my observation, he has a 3-2 win/loss record, 3.44 ERA, and 1.16 WHIP. His pitching on the reds will play a big role for the red’s to get a win against the cubs.

Javier Assad (4-1 W-L, 2.27 ERA) vs. Hunter Greene (3-2 W-L, 3.44 ERA)

Javier Assad of the Chicago Cubs has performed well this season with (4-1) and a brilliant 2.27 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. Looking at Assad’s performance he has been able to pitch effectively and keep the opposing team listless, he has recorded 61 strike outs and has given out only 6 home runs in 63.1 innings pitched. He needs to manage the game early and ensure the hitters on the side of the opposition do not prey on the Cubs. Assad’s strengths are his command further accentuated by his ground-ball inducing prowess, but he has the problem of walks, one of which could be capitalized on by the Reds’ hitters.

Hunter Greene has also been a strong pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds having 3-2 win-loss column and a 3.44 ERA. Greene has done well as a pitcher to the extent of getting 76 strikeouts while 30 batters were walked in 70.2 innings pitched. These are some of the reasons why his performance has been so useful in some games as Reds battles for some draws. Greene relies largely on the velocity on his fastball, and this coupled with the fact that he can induce a lot of swings and misses pose a threat against the Cubs lineup although at times he exhibits poor control which would be dangerous.
