There will be some thought to taking the Cubs -1.5 runs when that line is established. Quintana has a 2.32 ERA over his last eight starts and pitched well at home, going 3-1 with a 1.93 ERA in five starts at Wrigley. Cubs are expensive odds today but the only play here IMO.60%

I like Quintana to come out and pitch well here and put the Cubs in position for a win, so long as their offense shows up. Still, Ill stick with Chicago.

CHICAGO - Getaway day has not been good to the Reds. They were 0-5 in such games going into Sunday.
That's often the difference between a good trip and a bad one.
In a further sign that things may be turning around, the Reds sealed the deal on the trip Sunday with a 10-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs before a crowd of 40,884 on a cool, breezy day at Wrigley Field. With the win, the Reds:Took their second straight series from the first-place Cubs. The Cubs are 10-0-2 against everyone else over their last 14 series.
Red Reporter: Reds collect all the hits, win second straight series vs. Cubs
The Reds swatted 17 hits today, which included a whopping 13 singles. They continually, up and down the lineup, hit the ball where the Cubs weren't. With the emphasis on exit velocity and launch angles and shifts and pitchers that throw 100 MPH, you don't really see this all that often.
So, with that being the case (and this being a holiday weekend where I've promised myself not to put too much thought into anything other than drinking and eating), I'm giving the trophy to everybody on the Reds.
Sure, Curt Casali hit a home run, and Nick Senzel had a double, while Eugenio Suarez had about 10 RBI this weekend.

The Reds got started early, scoring twice in the 1st inning. And then they just kept playing add-on as they took the game, and the series from the Cubs on Sunday afternoon at Wrigley. Fly that L, Chicago. Fly. That. L.The Offense
Nick Senzel was the spark plug in the game today for the Reds. He went 3-5 with a walk, a double, and he scored 4 runs. Joey Votto, Eugenio Suarez, Yasiel Puig, Jose Iglesias, and Curt Casali all had 2 hits on the day - with Casali adding a walk to his 2 hits and he had a 2-run homer off of backup catcher Victor Caratini in the 9th inning.

CHICAGO -- The Reds and the Chicago Cubs went back and forth again Saturday at Wrigley Field.
This time, however, it ended with the Cubs celebrating an 8-6 victory before a crowd of 40,929 on a warm, windy day at Wrigley Field. Each team hit three home runs. There were 25 hits in the game -- 14 by the Reds.
Tucker Barnhart, Yasiel Puig and Derek Dietrich homered for the Reds. The Reds led 2-0, trailed 5-2 and 6-4, but they kept answering Cubs' runs with runs of their own. The Cubs finally took the lead for good with two runs in the eighth.
Bleed Cubbie Blue: Cubs 8, Reds 6: A gutsy Yu Darvish, home runs, and Tyler Chatwood... closer?
I've been telling anyone who would listen that Tyler Chatwood had the stuff and the right mental makeup to close games for the Cubs.
"I would say that if you were to get a chance (to close a game) with us, that time would be because any of the other guys aren't available," Maddon said Thursday. "That would be why he would do it.
"He has the stuff to do it. But then again, he's just different. It's a different role to be in. A lot of times people jump to conclusions outside the confines (of Wrigley Field), and you have to listen to it.
Cubs Insider: Chicago Cubs Score and Recap (5/25/19): Cubs 8, Reds 6 - Cubs Win Wild One at Windy Wrigley
The Cubs bullpen has become a major issue over the last week, and Saturday threatened to be more of the same. This time, an unlikely closer was able to save the game and give the home team a win at homer-happy Wrigley Field.
An early indication of what kind of a day it was going to be came in the 2nd inning, when Yu Darvish walked a batter and catcher Tucker Barnhart hit a lazy fly ball to left. The 25 mph wind caught the ball and carried it into the basket for a two-run homer. Albert Almora Jr.
