San Francisco is 7-1 in their last 8 games and 19-7 in their last 26 Sunday games. The under is 8-2-2 in San Francisco’s last 12 games. Pittsburgh is 5-3 in their last 8 games against the NL West and 1-11 in their last 12 games. The under is 9-5-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 15 games against the NL West. The under is 8-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings in Pittsburgh.

Both of these pitchers have had a rough time this season and come into this matchup with ERA’s over 5.00. Alex Cobb is coming off of the IL to start this contest, but allowed 15 runs over his last two starts. For the Pirates, Mitch Keller has actually pitched pretty well in his last three starts. Keller has allowed five earned runs over his last 16.1 innings pitched. San Francisco is favored on the road, but I am leaning towards the Pirates in this matchup.
