The Pirates come into this game with a 44-64 record overall but they are coming off a win on Sunday.

The Pirates overall has struggled to score runs this season and they are averaging only 3.63 runs per game which is 28th in the league. Bryan Reynolds has hit 16 home runs and driven in 35 RBIs.

On the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates is Tyler Beede who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 3.89. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went 1.1 innings giving up five hits and four runs.
On the mound for the Diamondbacks is Zac Gallen who sits with a 6-2 record and an ERA of 3.31. In his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and three runs.
The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last six home games. The over is 5-0 Gallen’s last five home starts. The over is 5-1-1 in Gallen’s last seven starts on grass. The over is 5-1-2 in the Pirates last eight games against a right handed starter.
I trust Gallen more than I trust Beede and that will the difference here. I also trust the Diamondbacks' offense more as they were averaging 4.24 runs per game. Look for Arizona to get to Beede here and that will be the difference as Arizona gets the job done. Back the Diamondbacks on the money line. I am also throwing a few dollars on the Diamondbacks on the run line.
