The Shockers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The Pirates are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. Although the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, I like for the Pirates to keep this game close as they are slightly the better offensive team.
