Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

In simulations, they win the NL 3.3% of the time and are not a good value at 15/1, 6.2%. Our projection is leaning on them to win under 83.5 games. The Reds are averaging 82.5 wins per sim. At +425 the Reds are a good value to make the playoffs with a 30.8% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 3/1, 25%. They win the division in 18.2% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #9 in the NL.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 49% of their games last season so their 75-87 met expectations. Anyone betting on them to win every game would have lost a lot (-1364) based on a 100 unit risk per game. They were not good against the spread going 83-79 (-670 loss). More of their games came in under (92) than went over (60). They are favored in their upcoming game vs the St Louis Cardinals. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be better. Since last season their average run differential is -0.06 which ranks #9 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #11. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #7 ranked team in run differential in road games, vs #10 in home games.
