Reds vs Cubs MLB Thursday Afternoon Betting Offer

Reds Have Chance to Clinch Playoff Spot Today

Johnny Cueto will take the mound for the Reds, who need to win one game to clinch a spot in the 2012 MLB postseason and visit the Cubs today. Cueto is in the running for the Cy Young Award this year as he sits on 17 wins and has an ERA under 3.00. He has struggled of late, losing his previous three starts in a row. This is only the second time in his career that he has lost three consecutive starts.

Cubs Hope to Prevent Playoff Celebration on Home Turf

Chicago will rely on the young arm of Jason Berken to tame the potent Reds lineup and prevent Cincinnati from celebrating at Wrigley Field on Thursday. Berken will be making only his second start with the Cubs since being claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles on September 7. The Cubs do not have much left to play for aside from pride but the club is trying to avoid a 100-loss season. The team comes into today’s game with 91 losses on the season.

With two games on the MLB schedule today featuring teams that can clinch playoff spots, we like the Reds vs. Cubs game the best. Top online betting site Sportsbook.com has the Reds as -180 Money Line favorites for this afternoon’s matchup with Chicago. Get your bets in now for this afternoon affair that the Reds will take to clinch a playoff spot. Sportsbook.com as these odds and more up on the betting board right now!
