Pittsburgh is 17-41 in their last 58 games and 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 5-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 7 game four’s of a series. New York is 6-2 in their last 8 Sunday games and 38-18 in their last 56 home games. The under is 5-2-1 in New York’s last 8 game four’s of a series. Pittsburgh is 0-5 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

The Mets are looking to complete the sweep on Sunday and have Jacob deGrom on the mound. The issue that the Mets have when deGrom pitches, is that they usually don’t give him much run support. The Pirates are starting Johan Oviedo, who has allowed four runs over 9.2 innings for Pittsburgh this season. I am going to take the under in this game.
