Padres vs. Pirates Runline Betting Pick from John Martin: August 4th 2017

San Diego Padres vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
MLB Betting Pick: Pirates -1.5 +105 odds (August 4th 2017)

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a big stretch coming up with five straight home games against the Padres and Tigers.  If they are going to stay in contention for a postseason spot, they need to take care of business.  They did just that last night with a 6-0 win over the Reds.  Now they should win in blowout fashion against the Padres, who are 19-32 on the road this season.  Ivan Nova is 7-2 with a 2.83 ERA in nine home starts this year.  He’s opposed by Travis Wood, who is 1-1 with a 6.63 ERA in four starts for the Padres.  Nova is 1-1 with a 2.60 ERA in three previous starts against the Padres.  Nova is 57-26 against the money line as a favorite of -110 or higher in his career.  The Padres are 30-61 in their last 91 road games.  The Pirates are 4-0 in Nova’s last four home starts.  Pittsburgh is 5-1 in the last six home meetings with San Diego.

Brandon Lee betting the ‘Under’ in the Pirates vs. Phillies game on July 4th 2017

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadephia Phillies
MLB Over-Under Pick: Under 8.5 runs -110 odds (July 4th 2017)

The books have set the total too high for the 4th of July afternoon clash between the Phillies and Pirates. These two teams combined for just 4 runs in the Phillies 4-0 win on Monday and I see runs being at a premium again. Pittsburgh sends out Jameson Taillon, who has a strong 2.97 ERA in 10 starts and has a 2.70 ERA in 5 road starts. Philadelphia will send out Mark Leiter, who has really pitched well in his first two starts, both on the road. The most impressive being his debut against the Dbacks in Arizona, where he allowed just 3 hits in 6 scoreless innings. Give me the UNDER 8.5!

Will Rogers betting the Pirates +107 odds over the Rockies on June 14th 2017

Colorado Rockies vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
MLB Prediction: Pittsburgh +107 odds (June 14th 2017)

The set-up: the Pirates have taken the first two of this three-game home series with the Rockies (won 7-2 on Monday & 5-2 on Tuesday) and with four straight wins, own their longest winning streak of the season (modest though it may be). The back-to-back losses to Pittsburgh addded to Sunday night’s 7-5 loss at Wrigley, matches Colorado’s longest losing streak in 2017. Colorado scored 50 runs during a seven-game winning streak prior to its current skid but has managed only four runs in the two losses in Pittsburgh, going 2-for-18 with runners in scoring position.

The pitching matchup: German Márquez (4-3 & 4.44 ERA) starts for Colorado and Chad Kuhl (1-5 & 5.63 ERA) for Pittsburgh. Marquez won his final four starts in May (four ERs allowed for a 1.46 ERA) but he allowed six runs in five innings at San Diego on June 2, (8-5 loss), before lasting only three innings (threw 80 pitches!) in a no-decision at the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Kuhl’s lone win this season came in his 2017 debut and he has not pitched beyond five innings since April 18. However, with his spot in the rotation in jeopardy, he has responded with back-to-back solid efforts in a pair of no-decisions. He allowed two runs and three hits in five innings versus Arizona on May 31 and one run and four hits at Baltimore last time out.

The pick: Colorado has scored the most runs in the National League with 344 but the Rockies have mustered just four over the first two games of this three-game series. Like Kuhl, Márquez’s spot in the rotation is hardly assured, as Tyler Anderson and Jon Gray are both closing in on their returns for Colorado. Marquez looks shaky at best after throwing 80 pitches in just three innings in his last start, while Kuhl owns a 3.72 ERA over his last four starts and is coming off one of his best outings of the season. The Pirates get the sweep.
