2 units on Game Total UNDER 8.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Mark Buerhle had a couple rough starts, but has now surrounded those with two allowing no runs before, and one allowing no runs since. That is three of his last five allowing nothing. The Pirates certainly aren't the type of lineup that can cause him problems either. Ross Olendorf has been average on the season, but at home he has pitched extremely well in four of his five starts. Buerhle has been good vs. teams with losing records, and it has shown up in the total results where he is 20-7 to the UNDER vs. a losing team. Olendorf has been even better in this spot as he has pitched to a 16-2 mark to the UNDER vs. a losing team. I'll go with the UNDER here.
