The Pirates have the 2nd best record in baseball and they have won 3 in a row, but they are still 4.5 games back of the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. On the road tonight they are the favorite facing a Reds team that has won 2 in a row, but in 4th place in the division 18 games back of the Cardinals.

Pittsburgh Pirates

While the Pirates are still trailing the Cardinals they have a big lead in the Wild Card race, which may be their best bet to make the post-season.

The Pirates have won 6 of 7 games and the reason the Pirates have been winning this season is a pitching staff, which ranks 2nd in the Majors in team ERA.

Pittsburgh does rank 17th in runs scored and in their 3-game winning streak they have totaled 21 runs.

After a slow start to the season Andrew McCutchen has gotten back on track and he leads the Pirates in HR, batting average, and RBI.


Cincinnati Reds

The Reds have won 2 straight and 5 of their last 10 games, but they are still 9 games under .500. Cincy is 10 games back in the Wild Card race and the team has already traded pitcher Johnny Cueto and a few other players are rumored to be on the trading block as well.

The Reds have struggled at the plate and on the mound on the season ranking 21st in runs scored and 25th in team ERA.

While the Reds have not had a season to remember so far they have had the number of the Pirates. They have won their last 5 home games facing Pittsburgh and have taken 9 of 11 from them overall.

David Holmberg makes the start for the Reds in Cueto’s place in the rotation and last season for Cincy he went 2-2 with an ERA of 4.80.

A.J. Burnett goes for the Pirates and this season he is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in 3 starts against the Reds. However, in 2 starts since the All Star break he has not pitched well giving up 11 runs in 11 innings of work.

The Pirates are 6-1 in Burnett’s last 7 road starts and 4-1 in their last 5 games overall with him getting the starting nod.

Burnett needs to be wary of the red-hot Joey Votto, who is hitting .550 in his last 12 games and in his last 6 home games facing the Pirates he is batting .458 with 3 HR.

MLB Betting Trends:

* Pirates are 11-5 in their last 16 games as a road favorite.
* Pirates are 41-19 in their last 60 overall.
* Pirates have an Over record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.
* Reds are 3-7 in their last 10 home games.
* Reds are 1-6 in their last 7 games following a win.
