Every team starts the season in hopes of carving out some sort of identity through the course of the year, yet very few ever manage to do so. The Chicago Cubs have definitely found theirs this year, as they have established themselves as a team that is young and fearless. They will look to continue their improbable season when they welcome in the Cincinnati Reds to start the week. Game 2 of the MLB betting series will go on Tuesday night.
A Closer Look at the Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs MLB Odds Preview, Pick & Game InfoDate/Time: Tuesday, September 1st, 8:05 PMVenue: Wrigley Field, Chicago, ILTV: WGNRadio: Cubs Radio Network, WBBM 780Opening line: Chicago Cubs -155Dan Haren (8-9, 3.90 ERA) has not been at his best since coming over from Miami, and will be looking to improve as the regular season draws to a close.It has been a miserable year for the Cincinnati Reds (53-76), and they are on a losing streak right now that they cannot seem to dig out of. They have won only 2 of their last 16 games, and have been swept on 3 separate occasions during that run. Their only wins during this period have come in a make-up game versus the Tigers, and a 12-9 win over the Brewers that helped them avoid yet another sweep. There is no telling just how bad things are going to get before the regular season mercifully draws to a close for the Reds, as their closing schedule features a ton of games against teams that are in the playoffs right now. Anthony DeSclafani (7-10, 3.84 ERA) will start, and will be trying to avoid losing his 4th straight game.
