Pirates Betting Preview
Pittsburgh is 11-7 after defeating Colorado. The Pirates have found a way to survive without Oneil Cruz, and they’ll look to complete their second road sweep of the season here. The Pittsburgh offense is scoring 3.95 runs per game, while batting .228, with a .309 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.92 ERA, with a 1.44 WHIP. Bryan Reynolds (5 HR, 14 RBI) has recorded a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he leads the Pirates in batting average (.340). Carlos Santana recorded a pair of doubles in the game one victory.
Johan Oviedo (1-1, 2.45 ERA, 9 Ks) will pitch for Pittsburgh. The fourth-year pitcher put together one of the finest starts of his career, striking out ten in seven innings of work, while allowing just one run, but somehow earning his first losing decision of the season.
Rockies Betting Preview
Colorado fell to 5-13 following the loss to Pittsburgh. The Rockies have dropped seven straight games, and it’s unclear if they’ll fix things before heading to Philly this weekend. The Colorado offense is scoring 4.5 runs per game, while batting .275, with a .322 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.28 ERA, with a 1.46 WHIP. Charlie Blackmon has recorded a hit in four straight games, and he leads the Rockies in batting average (.317). C.J. Cron hit his second homer of the season last night, and he’s tied for the team lead in RBI (8) with Ryan McMahon.
Austin Gomber (0-3, 8.16 ERA, 11?K) will get the call for Colorado. The fifth-year pitcher has regressed with each start in the early going. Gomber found himself in trouble in Seattle last week, giving up five runs in just 3 ⅔ innings pitched.
Pittsburgh vs Colorado Trends
Pittsburgh is 11-7 against the spread this season, with a 8-9-1 over/under record. Colorado is 4-14 ATS this year, with a 9-9 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
Pittsburgh comes into this matchup with advantages on the mound, at the plate, and in over momentum. Colorado is struggling immensely early, and with Austin Gomber set to go for them, they will be vulnerable throughout the early going of this contest. The Over has Coors Field ‘pick your poison’ all over it, so roll with the Pirates here and target the Rockies until they figure things out.
