If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Saturday when the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds meet at Great American Ball Park.

Eddie Butler will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs on this day. Right hander Butler is 4-2 this season with a 3.71 ERA.

Starting this game for the Reds will be Jackson Stephens. The right hander has a 0.00 ERA to go along with a 0-0 record this season.

Butler hasn’t been able to pitch deep into games, but he has kept the Cubs in most of his starts. The 26-year-old won at Washington last time out, allowing four hits over five scoreless innings, but he hasn’t made it through six innings since tossing six scoreless frames in his Cubs debut May 12. Butler is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA in three career starts against the Reds.

Stephens is set to become the eighth Reds pitcher and the fifth starter to make his major-league debut this season. The 23-year-old was an 18th-round draft pick in 2012 and has put up pedestrian numbers in six seasons in the minors. Stephens was 4-4 with a 4.97 ERA in 15 games (14 starts) at Triple-A Louisville before getting the call to the bigs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 112-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 11.

One of the most puzzling trends of the 2017 season has been the Chicago Cubs’ struggling offense. The defending World Series champions hope to bounce back from their seventh shutout of the season when they play the second of a three-game road series against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.

The Reds blanked the Cubs 5-0 in Friday’s opener, snapping Chicago’s streak of 15 straight games at Great American Ball Park with at least one home run. The seven shutouts are one more than the Cubs endured all of last season, and they recorded just three hits Friday – their major league-high 10th game with three or fewer. It hasn’t helped that starters Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist are on the disabled list, and reigning National League MVP Kris Bryant has missed the past two games with a sprained ankle. The Reds kept slugging in the opener, as Adam Duvall belted his 19th home run, which ranks in the top 10 in the NL but third on the team behind Joey Votto (23) and Scott Schebler (20).

The Reds were a 5-0 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Cubs. That made winners of bettors who got Cincinnati at -122 on the moneyline, while the total score (5) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Chicago was a 5-0 loser in its last match on the road against the Reds. They lost as +112 underdogs, while the total score of 5 made winners of UNDER bettors.
