3 units on Pittsburgh -109 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Matt Chico is 0-5 with a 6.68 ERA. In his last outing, a 7-0 loss, he allowed eight runs and five hits in just four innings. We'll gladly fade that at nearly even money. Paul Laholm goes for the Pirates. In contrast, he's got a 3.26 ERA and allowed just one run and two hits in a complete game his last time out. His team averaged 5.7 runs per game vs. southpaws. Washington averages just 3.7 runs per game at home. They are just 8-31 the past two seasons when facing a pitcher with a 3.50 or better ERA. They are alos 1-12 the past two seasons after having allowed 10+ runs in their last game. Pittsburgh is the play here.
