Reds vs Giants Game 4 Baseball Odds

The Cincinnati Reds blew a chance at an NLDS sweep last night but look to emerge victorious as the Giants arrive at Great American Ball Park on Wednesday.

Barry Zito, with a record of 15-8 on the season, gets the ball for the Giants, while the Reds were set to trot Mat Latos to the mound in this one. He is 14-4 so far in 2012. But Mike Leake is now scheduled to get the ball, according to ESPN.

Latos had dominated the Giants twice in 2012, while Zito has lost three straight against the Reds. The line was not set early Wednesday, but check 5Dimes shortly for the opening Game 4 odds.
