Pittsburgh at Miami

1 unit on Miami +190 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.9) RESULT: LOSS
The Pittsburgh Pirates are 76-49, and have the second best record in baseball, and while that looks good for the resume of this team, they have to have some immediate concerns about Gerit Cole. Cole opened the season pitching as good as ever, but he is winless in the month of August. Justin Nicolino may or may not be the future for the Marlins on the hill, but he has worked a pair of quality starts in his last two outings, and he has neutralized left-handed bats to the tune of 6-31 against him. The Pirates are now 1-4 in Coles last five starts after plating five or more runs in their previous game. Nicolino has the stuff to keep the Marlins around as a huge home dog, and Cole hasn't been the same in the last month. Take Miami as a big dog.
