Early Smash Pass - Rickenbach MLB Game #903 Friday 8* OVER the total in Cincinnati Reds vs Miami Marlins @ 7:10 ET - This match-up features the two worst bullpens in the National League as the relievers for each of these teams have a combined ERA above 5.00 so far this season. That could prove to be a significant factor here as there is reason to believe that neither pitcher will work deep into this game. The Marlins Wei-Yin Chen is making just his 2nd start since coming off of the disabled list and went just 5 and 1/3 innings in his first start. The Reds Sal Romano has averaged just 5 innings per start this season and has not worked more than 6 innings in any outing. We should get at least 3 to 4 innings of bullpen from both of these clubs tonight and that will certainly help this over if needed. The fact is that I expect some success against these starters though too. Chen has allowed 4 earned runs or more in 6 of his last 10 road starts. Romano walked 6 in less than 4 innings the last time he faced the Marlins and he has nearly as many walks as strikeouts this season. He threw a ton of fastballs in his most recent start versus the Twins and that is not going to get the job done against this Miami team. The over is 3-0 in Romano's home starts this season. The over is 8-3 in the Reds last 11 games. When the Marlins are on the road with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs only 17 of their last 46 games have stayed under the total! 8* OVER the total in Cincinnati
