Cincinnati Reds @ Los Angeles Dodgers Tips 

The Cincinnati Reds will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in an MLB National League regular-season game on Tuesday, April 27. This will be the first of three consecutive matches between these two teams. The LA Dodgers are currently top of the National League West Division, while the Cincinnati Reds are bottom of the National League Central Division.

The LA Dodgers are the reigning World Series champions and have begun the defense of their title impressively, topping their division early and maintaining their position. However, while the Dodgers are the first team in MLB to post 15 victories this season, their rate of defeats has increased dramatically to the extent that they have now lost five of their last seven matches. Four of those defeats came against their arch rivals the San Diego Padres, who have also just defeated the Dodgers in a series for the first time in 2021, winning it 3-1.

Cincinnati began their campaign brightly, winning nine matches, losing five and topping the NL Central Division. However, their recent form has been awful, and they have now gone 2-8 in their last 10 games, literally going from the top of their division to rock bottom. The Reds will take a seven match losing streak into their series with the World Champions.

I’m backing the LA Dodgers to defeat the Cincinnati Reds, basically because of their superior pedigree and the fact that Los Angeles has been winning more matches recently than Cincinnati. The Dodgers will win a matchup that should feature around 10 runs in total, 8 in their favor. 

  • Dodgers top of NL West Division
  • Dodgers 15-7 this season
  • Reds bottom of NL Central Division
  • Reds 9-12 this season

Head to Head 

The Cincinnati Reds and the LA Dodgers have played each other 13 times over the past three seasons, with Cincinnati currently leading 7-6. The Reds and the Dodgers didn’t play each other during the 2020 season, but in 2019 they faced-off six times, with the Dodgers finishing 5-1 up. However prior to that, in 2018 they met seven times, with Cincinnati dominating 6-1, emphasizing the dramatic improvements made by the Dodgers team over the past couple of seasons. 

Cincinnati Reds Form

No team in Major League Baseball this season has gone into such a complete freefall as have the Cincinnati Reds. Much like the LA Dodgers, Cincinnati lost their opening match of their campaign, in their case against the St. Louis Cardinals 11-6, then rebounded to win their next six, a sequence that took the Reds to the top of the National League Central Division. 

However, Cincinnati then lost four of their next five matches, suffering series defeats against Arizona and San Francisco. A minor resurgence saw the Reds win a series against the Cleveland Indians 2-1, but they were subsequently beaten 3-0 by the Arizona Diamondbacks, and 3-0 by the St. Louis Cardinals, results that took their current losing streak to seven-straight matches.

LA Dodgers Form

After losing their season opener to the Colorado Rockies, the LA Dodgers went on an impressive run of thirteen wins against just one defeat, scoring series wins against the Colorado Rockies (twice), the Oakland Athletics, the Washington Redskins and the San Diego Padres. 

However, over the past couple of weeks, the Dodgers season has done something of an about-turn. First their ability to score lots of runs dried up to the extent they could only beat Seattle 1-0, and were subsequently defeated by San Diego 6-1. They also began to lose regularly, and Los Angeles has now gone 2-5 in their last seven matches. The Dodgers have also suffered their first series loss, with the Padres getting the better of them 3-1 in games over the weekend.

This really is a battle between two teams that are struggling to win games right now. Despite the fact that they still have the best overall record in MLB, the LA Dodgers have lost three of their last four matches (and five of their last seven). Meanwhile the Cincinnati Reds have lost seven games consecutively, a run that has seen them drop from top of the NL Central Division to bottom.

Because their descent hasn’t been quite so severe, I’m backing the LA Dodgers to defeat the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday in a match that will feature around ten runs, eight of them in the Dodgers favour.
