Cincinnati Reds (39-44) vs. New York Yankees (53-32)

As the MLB season heats up, the Cincinnati Reds head to Yankee Stadium to face the New York Yankees in what promises to be an engaging matchup on Wednesday, July 3, 2024. Currently, the Reds are below .500 with a 39-44 record, while the Yankees boast a stronger 53-32 standing. This game, set in the iconic Yankee Stadium, will be a crucial one for both teams as they strive for postseason positions. For those looking for MLB free picks, this game provides interesting dynamics given the recent forms of both teams and their historical performances.

The Reds have been unable to get into a consistent rhythm this season, seen in their lowly sub-. 500 record. That said, they have been good on the road and stand at 26-14 against the spread for away games. Batting at an average of .229 the number of home runs produced by their batting lineup is actually 79 which to some extent has been disappointing. However, their pitching staff has had some reasonable efforts recorded in the average earned run standard 3.89, which presents their mound prowess. For the Reds they will have to rely on their strengths which is the road game and ensure their hitting was strong enough to make the difference in the next game.

On the other side the Yankees have proved why experts rated them as one of the strongest teams of the league with a very good standing of 53-32. Their team batting average is .250 but with a totally better home run record of 121 home runs indicating that they have the muscle power. Pitchers have also been solid on the team and have a better 3.49 ERA on average as well. Even though they have lost 4 of 5, the Yankees have otherwise been a solid home team and will fancy their chances of having better slugging and on-base times against the Reds.

Andrew Abbott (7-6, 3.41 ERA) vs. Carlos Rodon (9-5, 4.42 ERA)

Andrew Abbott faced 12 batters of the Yanks, had a record of 7-6 and an ERA of 3.42, has proved to be a useful player in the Reds team during the current season. Across his 89.2 IP, he has given up 76 hits and 32 walks besides striking out 72 of the batters that have faced him. That aspect of Abbott’s will be of immense importance in neutralizing the Yankees’ muscular line-up by reducing the number of walks and home runs surrendered. His performance on road will be in question, and more so due to the expectation of pitching in the Yankee Stadium.

Carlos Rodon for the Yankees, has a slightly lesser record with which he is 9-5 but with a relatively higher ERA of 4.42 Lovullo comes after him having pitched over 93.2 innings. Related to his performance, he can be proud of average results: he took 92 hits and 16 homer-launched, but at the same time, made 92 strikes. That is where Rodon comes into the picture, from where he can smash his strikeout skills to counter the Reds’ hitters and get his team back on track.

New York Yankees Betting Trends

Considering the current form and statistical analysis, this game could lean towards a high-scoring affair, possibly favoring the home team due to their superior slugging and on-base percentages. However, the Reds’ effective road game performance against the spread cannot be overlooked.

For those seeking free picks, keep an eye on the total runs at the top betting sites, as the trends suggest an ‘OVER’ could be a promising bet.
