I’m on the Pirates here. I get that Blake Snell has the name brand behind him, but we haven’t seen him in a while and what we have seen from him has played to the back of his baseball card from the last couple of years, and that’s getting off to slow starts. The Giants are 0-3 in his starts this year and Snell still has an ERA of 11.57, and in the last two weeks, the Pirates have top-10 numbers against lefties in terms of team OPS and isolated power. Jared Jones has been really good as well and while the Giants have been good against righties, it’s not crazy to think that Jones is the better starter here. Snell’s put his team behind the 8-ball all year up to this point and I think the Pirates are favored here for a reason. Only the Rockies and White Sox have lost you more money than the Giants on the road here. Give me the Pirates.

Chris’s Pick Pittsburgh Pirates: -120
