The Pittsburgh Pirates takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opening game of a three-game set between the two teams. It’ll be a battle between 2 of the worst teams in the league.
Just past the midway point of the season Pittsburgh finds themselves at 36-57, last in the NL Central. They have the 4th worst record in baseball and 2nd worst in the National League, only behind Arizona.
The 2021 MLB Draft was last week and the Pirates had the #1 overall selection. They surprised some by taking Louisville catcher Henry Davis over several young shortstop talents and big college arms.
The Pirates rank last in baseball runs per game which can be accounted to also being last in home runs per game as well.
The D-backs season is already over as they have the worst record in baseball at 27-68. Arizona just drafted 6th overall and took top high school SS prospect Jordan Lawler who surprisingly fell to them.
They’ll continue to look towards the future as they are in line for next year’s #1 pick and show no signs of playoff contention in the next few years. As the MLB trade deadline approaches, Arizona has some intriguing trade chips on its roster, including 3B Eduardo Escobar (.785 OPS, 20 HR, 60 RBI) who’s drawing interest around the league.
The team’s pitching staff has been awful, producing the 2nd-highest ERA in baseball (5.40), while Arizona’s offense is tallying 4.14 runs per contest (22nd in the MLB).
Arizona hasn’t fared much better than Pittsburgh on the offensive side of things, ranking 24th in runs per game and finding themselves right in front of the Pirates in home runs per game.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
The Diamondbacks are the worst team in baseball and until they start to find some consistency, it’s easy to back their opponents.
Arizona is battling injuries to multiple starters and their inability to have the depth to overcome those injuries will continue to haunt them, especially against a team as hungry as Pittsburgh on Monday night.
Take the Pirates in the opener on the road.
