Colorado is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 4-11 in their last 15 game two’s of a series. The under is 8-1 in Colorado’s last 9 Tuesday games. Pittsburgh is 6-1 in their last 7 games against the NL West and 1-7 in their last 8 games. The over is 5-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 7 home games. Colorado is 0-5 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings. 


Pittsburgh was able to snap their losing streak with the win in Game 1, but they have struggled over the last week or so. Colorado has played well recently, but their team ERA is still towards the bottom in the MLB. Colorado is starting Connor Seabold, who has mostly worked out of the bullpen this year, but did allow three earned runs over 5.0 innings in his last start. I like the Pirates to win this game by at least two runs.
