It’s another great day for baseball betting! Here, we’re taking a look and betting on the top five games on Wednesday’s schedule.
Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates – 12:35 PM ET
Having gone 1-4 over their last five games, the Cincinnati Reds desperately need a win. They’ve lost twice already to the Pirates including yesterday’s 4-1 loss. On the mound tonight is the 4-4 Luis Cessa, who has an ERA of 4.78. Perhaps Cessa can contain the Pirates batters.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have easily found a way to shut down the Reds. Yesterday’s win marked their third win over their last five days.

On the mound for the Braves tonight is the 5-6 Jake Odorizzi, who has an ERA of 4.61. Keep in mind that the Braves have a team batting average of .253.
The Washington Nationals aren’t too bad at the plate either, batting .249 this season. On the mound tonight is the 7-10 Josiah Gray, who has an ERA of 5.17. Gray’s not going to give the Nationals a strong chance to win, so we’ll take the Braves -220.
