1 unit on Pittsburgh -154 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.65) RESULT: WIN
Arizona is on a long road trip and the Diamondbacks are 14-39 on the road vs. a team with a winning record. The Diamondbacks have lefty Robbie Ray (3-8) going, and the team is 1-5 in his last six starts. Pittsburgh is in a pennant race and the Pirates are 40-14 at home against a team with a losing record, plus 9-2 at home vs. a left-handed starter. Pirates starter J.A. Happ has a 0.95 WHIP while allowing the Diamondbacks to bat just .162 against him in his career. The Pirates are 42-16 as chalk, plus a sizzling 36-15 in their last 51 home games. Since the Diamondbacks are 1-4 in the last five meetings, grab the motivated and better home team. Play Pittsburgh.
