3 units on Pittsburgh +125 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Rich Hill has really struggled with his command so far walking seven and hitting a batter, lasting only nine combined innings in two starts. The Pirates have won all three games Ian Snell has pitched thus far. Snell has completed at least six innings in all of them running his streak to eight straight getting through the 6th inning. The Pirates are now 8-3 over his last 11 starts dating back to last year including 5-1 on the road. The Cubs have been streaky early winning and losing games in bunches, and they are coming off a loss, and we like the Pirates here.
