The Highlights:

  • Cincinnati opened +110 for today’s game against San Francisco.
  • Joey Votto was upgraded from questionable to probable, dropping the line from Reds +142 to +131.
  • Shortly after, Eugenio Suarez was scratched from the starting lineup, moving the line back up to Reds +143.

After leaving Monday’s game due to back tightness, Joey Votto pinch-hit in Cincinnati’s 5-3 loss to San Francisco Tuesday night. Despite making an appearance, Votto’s status regarding today’s game (3:45 p.m. ET) against the Giants remained up in the air until early this the afternoon.


At 12:39 p.m. ET, news broke that Votto would return to the Reds lineup, moving the line across the betting market.  After Cincy opened +110, the line ballooned to +142 before the Votto update pushed the line back down to +131.

However, the line didn’t settle for long as more breaking injury news — regarding Cincinnati’s Eugenio Suarez — broke at 1:17 p.m. ET. Suarez was scratched due to a sore ankle, moving the line up to Reds +143, close to where it sat before Votto’s status started this betting market roller coaster.
