Minnesota vs. Cincinnati,

Score: 1 - 2
Money Line: -182 Cincinnati
This is an 8* play on the Cincinnati Reds.
The Reds have split the first two games of this home series versus the Twins, but I like Cincinnati as the favorite in the rubber match with it's ace on the mound.
Johnny Cueto is having another fine season, and he'll start at home in a matinee against the Twins on Wednesday. There might not be a better bet than Cueto at home during the day. He's 2-1 with a 1.78 ERA at home this season, and 2-2 with a 2.98 ERA during the day. Going back to 2012, he's 25-7 at home with a 2.13 ERA, and 25-4 with a 1.78 ERA in day games.
The Twins hand the ball to Trevor May, who failed to get out of the first inning in his last start. May (4-6, 4.62 ERA) was torched for six runs on six hits, recording just one out before getting pulled in a loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee. The 25 year old is 2-3 with a 6.41 ERA on the road this season, and he's coming off four straight losses.
The Twins are batting just .226 on the road this season, with a record of 16-21, and they've lost seven of their last 10 away from Target Field.
