Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

The Cincinnati Reds are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but the value is with the Pirates and the slight plus money. Mitch Keller has been impressive this season, and he's enjoying his best month yet where he's allowed 5 runs in his last 25 innings. Hunter Greene is talented, but he still has issues with control at times, and he's actually been better on the road than at home this season. Give me the Pirates and the more favorable price with Keller on the hill.
