Game: Pittsburgh Pirates (905) @ St. Louis Cardinals (906)
Time: Saturday 09/05 4:05 PM Eastern
Pick: Pittsburgh +140 (moneyline) at americasbookie
The Pittsburgh Pirates had a very significant game last night in St. Louis. They are chasing the Cardinals in the NL Central, and a loss would have severely damaged their chances of catching them. That makes this game equally significant, as the Pirates need to sweep this series, and certainly have the capacity to do so. These teams may be ready to head in opposite directions as Pittsburgh snapped a four-game losing streak, while after winning 9 of 10, St. Louis has now dropped two straight. The Pirates have a very strong resume vs. a winning team where they own a 24-8 mark in their last 32 against them, and their track record off a win is an impressive 41-20 in their last 61. Take Pittsburgh to win this one.
