Pittsburgh at Cincinnati

Wednesday 04/08 07:10 PM Eastern

1 unit on Pittsburgh -118 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.85)  RESULT: LOSS

Pittsburgh turns to its budding young ace to stop the early bleeding. The #1 overall pick of the 2011 draft Gerrit Cole goes here and is 21-12 with a 3.45 ERA in his short career. No need to worry as the Pirates are a strong all-around team. The Pirates are 20-6 as a road favorite of -110 to -150, plus 21-8 in Cole's last 29 starts. Cole matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in his final start of the season last September against Cincinnati and faces another weak Reds lineup. The Reds were the #28 in scoring last season, the first time in over 30 years they have scored fewer than 600 total runs. Cincy goes with below average righty Mike Leake, and the Reds are 0-4 in Leake's last four starts vs. the Pirates. Back the Pirates.
