The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Boston Red Sox will face off at Fenway Park this Wednesday to close out their three-game set. Pittsburgh won last night behind a strong pitching effort, giving up one run in the first, before silencing the Red Sox, 4-1.
Pirates Betting Preview
Pittsburgh is 3-2 after defeating Boston last night. The Pirates trailed after the first, but never looked back and they’ll look to complete the sweep here. Pittsburgh is batting .274, with a 6.40 team ERA. Bryan Reynolds has given Boston trouble with three home runs in the last two games.
Mitch Keller will pitch for Pittsburgh here. The fifth-year pitcher got off to another rough start in his season debut, and he’ll look to respond here at Fenway. Keller managed to strike out eight over six innings versus Cincy, but he gave up four earned runs en route to a loss.
Red Sox Betting Preview
Boston is 2-3 after losing to Pittsburgh at home. The Red Sox got no production at the plate, despite a decent start from Nick Pivetta. The Red Sox are batting .275, with a 1.00 team ERA. Adam Duvall recorded multiple hits in the three games prior to yesterday, and he’ll look to bounce back here.
Corey Kluber will take the bump for Boston. The former stud Indians pitcher did not last long in his debut versus Baltimore, barely going three innings before allowing five runs which would lead to a narrow loss to the O’s.
Pittsburgh vs Boston Trends
Pittsburgh is 3-2 against the spread this season, with a 2-3 over/under record. Boston is 1-4 ATS, with a 4-1 O/U record. The Red Sox are 7-0 in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning record. The Over is 5-1 in BOS last 6 home games.
Corey's Free Pick
I also like seeing these two pitchers take the mound, because you know someone’s getting tee’d off on. Keller and Kluber have been below average starters over the least three seasons, and with both of them, I think we’re in for some runs in this contest. Take the over for this interleague battle.
