The 29-22 Pirates take on the 27-25 Marlins at Marlins Park.
The Pirates have lost 3 of their last 4 where the Marlins have won 2 of their last 3 games. Nicasio is pitching for the Pirates, he’s 4-4 with a 4.79 era.
Chen pitches for the Marlins, he’s 3-2 with a 4.37 era.
The Pirates were hot just last week winning 5 in a row, 7 of their last 8 and 10 of their last 12 but now find themselves losing 3 of their last 4. This little skid is due to a lack of their typical run production.
They rank 5th in the MLB with 5.1 runs per game.
So I don’t expect this trend to continue and they’ll get back to their high run producing ways.
Nicasio did not pitch well in May, giving up 18 runs over 21 innings.
Although the Pirates don’t score much, we would expect them to get to Nicasio for a few since they do hit for a high average.
The Marlins have been sporadically putting up big runs but overall are at the bottom of the MLB in this regard. With the way Nicasio is pitching, I would expect the Marlins to get a few.
They may be able to tack on a run when he is relieved. We can’t expect more than max 4 runs though.
Chen has pitched consistently this season and typically gives up just 2-3 runs.
Over his last 9 starts he’s giving up more than 3 just twice and gave up just 1 in his most recent start.
The Pirates may get through to him though with their high powered offence.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Pirates have lost 3 of their last 4 games

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Florida Marlins MLB Prediction:
The Pirates typically score a lot of runs and that is certainly possible again but Chen has no given up more than 3 often.
The Marlins don’t typically score much but with Nicasio on the mound, it’s likely they score a few.
The pitching favours the Marlins but offence favours the Pirates. I think the Pirates pull out on top.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates ML
The amount of runs Pirates score is dependent on how on Chen is but since they typically score a lot, I think they get through to him and score 4.
The Marlins will get a few on Nicasio but not too many, we’ll say 3.
Take the under.
