Cincinnati Reds 2024 World Series Odds

Cincinnati Reds MLB Betting

For the third time in four seasons, the Cincinnati Reds finished with a .500 record or higher. However, the only time the Reds made the playoffs was in the 2020 COVID-shortened season when the postseason field was expanded. Still, the Reds have at least stopped the hopelessness with their fans. However, gamblers are not sold on Cincinnati, which is not getting much love on the futures market to win the 2024 World Series. The Reds had a decent offseason, and the fact that they play in the mediocre National League Central gives them a legitimate shot for a postseason bid.

In 2023, the Cincinnati Reds had a record of 82-80 and finished 3rd x in the National League Central Division. Offensively, Cincinnati ranked 9th for runs scored, 16th for batting average, 10th for OPS, 14th for home runs, and 1st for stolen bases. Defensively, Cincinnati ranked 25th for earned run average, 25th for WHIP, 26th for strikeouts, 27th for quality starts, 19th for fewest errors, and 16th for bullpen ERA. Cincinnati was +1621 on the moneyline and +1956 on the run line.

Last season, the Reds were one of the best values on the board. The masses did not expect much from Cincinnati, and that gave them a great advantage at the betting window, where they consistently got favorable prices. Now, gamblers have more awareness of the Reds’ potential, and anyone wagering on Cincinnati games should be judicious about getting the best possible price.

Key offseason acquisitions: IF Jeimer Candelario, RHP Frankie Montas, RHP Nick Martinez, RHP Emilio Pagán, LHP Brent Suter

Key offseason departures: 1B Joey Votto, OF/IF Nick Senzel, RHP Derek Law, C Curt Casali

After Cincinnati finished near the bottom of the Majors in rotation ERA and near the top in bullpen innings, president of baseball operations Nick Krall prioritized pitching depth by adding a starter in Montas, relievers in Pagán and Suter, and a swingman who can do both in Martinez. The veteran additions are expected to fortify the staff and pick up innings.

The Biggest question gamblers have about the Reds is if the rotation is enough to help reach the postseason? Despite the additions, the Reds will still have several young starters and at least nine pitchers competing for five spots. Their big three, Hunter Greene, Graham Ashcraft, and Nick Lodolo, had injury-filled 2023 seasons. Andrew Abbott, Brandon Williamson, and prospects Connor Phillips and Lyon Richardson will also be in the mix.

Among the more active small-market teams, the Reds have spent $103 million on free agents. They’ve also watched franchise icon Joey Votto leave with no apparent plans to bring him back — understandable from an off-field perspective, but it will be odd when the Opening Day lineup doesn’t have him at first base.

It’s good to see Cincinnati pushing to contend in a winnable division coming off an 82-80 season, and the infield-rich Reds seemingly could still have a trade up their sleeve before the end of spring training to better balance what is presently a $100 million roster.

Cincinnati ranks 26th for MLB payroll.
