Cincinnati Reds Visit New York to Take on the Yankees Friday Night

Reds hoping Mike Leake finds success in second-half

The month of May was a pretty one for Leake, who had an ERA of 2.16 for the month. Since then, he has struggled to the tune of allowing 25 earned runs in 50 innings pitched, which is good for an ERA of 4.50. He is 7-7 this season with an overall ERA that sits at 3.54. He will need to revert to how well he pitched in the month of May if the Reds want to contend in the Central heading down the stretch.

Yankees season very well could be done right now

Heading into the second-half of the season, the Yankees could be done. They have been without CC Sabathia for some time and will be without Masahiro Tanaka for an extended period. They have no pitching depth in the minors to pull from for their rotation and really no trade chips to acquire a frontline starter either. It is quite possible that they stand pat at the trade deadline and look towards next season.

On Friday night, when the Reds visit the Yankees, we will place our bet at Sportsbook.ag, where the Reds are underdogs on the road. Despite this, we still like Cincinnati to win this game. We are going to drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the Reds and the OVER 8.5 total runs scored at -110 as they win the opener of this series.
