I recently wrote about how Petco Park had completely flipped from one of the league’s best under parks to an elite over park in recent years as a result of changes to the park. Well, that’s not the case with Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.
It’s always been a hitter’s dream since it opened in 2013, replacing Cinergy Field. When you say “hitter’s park,” it is one of five MLB stadiums that immediately pop in my head:
- Great American Ballpark (Reds)
- Coors Field (Rockies)
- Miller Park (Brewers)
- Citizens Bank Park (Phillies)
- Global Life Park (Rangers)
More importantly, the market has seemed to underestimate the over/unders in Cincinnati. No team in baseball has been more profitable to the over at home since 2005 than the Reds.
