Washington at Pittsburgh
Friday 07/24 07:05 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Pittsburgh +120 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.3) RESULT: WIN
Washington has a losing road record, but hopes to turn things around with its ace going. However, Max Scherzer has lost three of his last four starts and hasn't been helped much by an offense that has produced a total of four runs during that span. The Nationals are also 0-4 in Scherzer's last four starts following a team loss in their previous game. Pittsburgh is a dominant home team (33-16), and the Pirates are 49-21 at home against a right-handed starter. The Pirates have Jeff Locke going, with 2.58 ERA at home, and the Pirates are 15-5 in his last 20 home starts. With the Nationals 1-4 in the last five meetings in Pittsburgh, grab home field. Play Pittsburgh.
