On the mound for the pirates will be Mitch Keller who sits with a 5-12 record and an ERA of 3.92. In his last start against the Reds, he went five innings giving up five hits and one run. 

The Pirates are 4-1 in their last five home games. The Pirates are 1-4 in Keller’s last four starts on five days of rest. The under is 6-0-1 in Keller’s last seven starts on five days of rest. The under is 4-0 in Keller’s last four starts on grass. 

Keller in his last start gave up only one run and he’s going to find success in this game. The one problem for Keller though is he doesn’t get a ton of run support and there is going to be that issue again here. Look for this game to be a 3-1 or 4-1 type of game, and the under is going to cash with ease. In terms of the side it's a lean to the Pirates to pull the upset.
