2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Pittsburgh at San Francisco

3 units on San Francisco -1.5 runs +174 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

The Pirates unloaded the middle of their lineup and the heart of their bullpen. Well the fire sale has taken its toll on this season, as they have now gone 8-22 over their last 30, and a 20-loss September would not be shocking. Zach Duke, once a promising lefthander, has fallen far short of those expectations and the Pirates have all of one win to show for his last nine starts. Duke is yielding nearly seven runs a contest, losing all but one game by two runs or more. This smells like a sweet valued runline play getting tremendous odds in a very winnable situation, so I'll back the runline with the Giants here.
