It took 10 innings, but the Pirates were able to beat Detroit 5-3 on Tuesday to climb within a game of the Brewers in the Central. Pittsburgh has now won 3 of the last 4, and have a very good chance of getting another victory as -120 favorites on Wednesday.
The Pirates offense has been so-so lately, being held to 2 runs or less in two of the last four. They have never faced Detroit starter Spencer Turnbull so the unfamiliarity factor could lead Wednesday’s game to be a low scoring outing (O/U 8).
Another reason runs may be at a premium from Comerica Park is because Trevor Williams is on the hill for the Bucs. He’s completed the 6th in all three starts this season and has a 2.45 ERA to show for it.
The Tigers need to break out of their rut as they’ve now lost four in a row and five of the last six. Detroit is still treading water in the Central just 1.5 GB from 1st but they need to right the ship in another home game here.
Turnbull gets the start for Detroit coming off a very short outing where he allowed 8 hits in 4 IP to Cleveland. Trunbull does have good stuff however as evidenced by his 10K performance two outings ago vs. Kansas City.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Pirates are 6-1 last 7 vs. RH starter
- Pirates are 7-3 last 10 overall
- Pirates are 5-1 in Williams’ last 6 starts
- Tigers are 1-4 last 5 overall
- Pirates are 6-1 last 7 H2H meetings
Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The value is definitely on Pittsburgh as they are -120 while going 7-3 over their last 10. That’s almost too good of a price vs. a team that has lost four in a row. The Pirates are a tough bet on getaway day, heading back home after an 8 game road swing.
What this contest should be is a low scoring affair. Turnbull and Williams will duel in this one.
