Cincinnati Reds (72-52) at San Francisco Giants (69-56), 10:15 p.m. EDT Line: San Francisco -133, Cincinnati +123, Total: 7.5
Two teams that missed the playoffs last season are both in fighting position to make the postseason this year. The Reds hold a slight edge in that department at the moment, leading their division by 3.5 games while the Giants are two games behind Philadelphia for the wild card spot and still six games behind West-leading San Diego. In this contest, the Reds rest their hopes on the right-handed shoulder of Edinson Volquez (3-1, 4.98 ERA) while the Giants counter with righty Matt Cain (9-10, 3.11 ERA). Football Lines

Volquez, recovering from Tommy John surgery, has allowed 10 earned runs in 15 road innings this season (6.00 ERA). The right-hander allowed five runs in 4.2 innings in his last start, a no decision at Arizona. In his three starts prior to that contest, Volquez allowed just three earned runs in a combined 17.2 innings (1.53 ERA), posting a 2-0 record.

Cain, meanwhile, has been great in home starts this season (6-3, 2.62 ERA, 1.01 WHIP). He has struggled a bit recently, allowing eight earned runs over 17 innings (4.24 ERA) and posting an 0-2 record in his last three starts. In his lone start of the season versus the Reds, Cain threw a complete game, 3-0 shutout at Cincinnati, allowing seven hits and whiffing five. Football Betting Lines
