Pittsburgh at Chicago

1.5 units on Chicago +122 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.33) RESULT: LOSS
The Pittsburgh Pirates are on a roll and look to extend their winning streak to eight games behind their ace Gerit Cole. Cole has delivered a 10-2 record on the season, backed by a stellar 1.71 ERA. Those numbers are not sustainable, and he has become overrated as the oddsmakers bump the line when he takes the mound. He will be opposed by Jeff Samardzija. The Pirates have only scored 25 runs in the seven game winning streak, and Samardzija's stuff has yet to translate to the AL, but he has a great track record against the Pirates, as he owns a 2.22 ERA against them in 9 starts and 11 relief stints. The Pirates are in their worst spot as they are 15-45 in their last 60 interleague road games vs. a right hander. Play the home team White Sox.
