Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
Thursday 07/30 07:10 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Cincinnati +134 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.51) RESULT: WIN
Pittsburgh is a .500 road team and the Pirates are 6-16 in A.J. Burnett's last 22 starts during game one of a series. Burnett has been shaky in each of his two starts since the All-Star break, giving up 11 runs and 22 hits over 11+ innings. Cincinnati is home and the Reds are 9-3 at home against a team with a winning record. They bring up lefty David Holmberg, who threw very well when they brought him up last September. The Reds won the final two of a three-game series against the Cardinals, both via shutouts. The Pirates are just 2-9 in the last 11 meetings of this divisional rivalry, including 0-5 at Cincinnati. Play Cincinnati.
