Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Connor Overton makes his first Major League start this afternoon against the Cincinnati Reds.

Betting Impact:

The Reds are -155 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Overton has made five relief appearances this year, and the first four came with the Blue Jays. He faces a Reds team that has lost four straight and now sits 1.5 games back of the Cardinals for the N.L.'s second wild card spot. Cincinnati counters with Tyler Mahle (11-5, 3.73), who is 3-5 with a 3.43 ERA in eight career starts against Pittsburgh. The over is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings between these teams, and is 3-1-1 in their last five games in Pittsburgh.
