The 2019 season is winding down which means we have games with little to no angles to discover like Tuesday’s Pirates at Giants tilt. The teams are a combined 42 games out of 1st in their respective division but can we still find value?
Both teams come into Tuesday’s game kind of mediocre, Pittsburgh having won 6 of thelr last 10 with San Francisco going 4-6 over that same span. Oddsmakers have made the Giants -125 favorites, but that’s down from a -139 open.
The Pirates probably don’t mind going on the road, after all it beats their most recent home stand record of 2-4. The last time Pittsburgh got away from PNC Park, they scored a 4-game sweep in Colorado while plating 36 runs.
Pittsburgh tries to get their offense going after plating just 1 run total on Saturday and Sunday vs. the Cardinals. The Pirates have also hit just 5 HRs as a team over the past 7 days so they need to find a way to manufacture.
The Pirates will send out Mitch Keller on Tuesday. The right-hander gave up 8 runs in 4.0 IP to the Phillies two starts ago and was knocked out by a line drive to the wrist after 1.2 IP in his last go.
San Francisco Giants
It’s hard to find value in the Giants on Tuesday even at home because they are 8 games under .500 at Oracle Park on the year.
San Francisco did take 2 of 3 at the Dodgers over the weekend before hosting Pittsburgh in Monday’s series opener.
No Giants batters have ever faced Pittsburgh starter Keller. San Francisco also only has 5 HR over the past week so the play would be the under here if not for such a low total of 8.5.
Jonny Cueto takes the ball for SF on Tuesday and he does have some experience vs. Pittsburgh batters. As a team, the Bucs have faced Cueto 51 times while scratching out just 10 hits (.196).
Cueto hasn’t started since late July of 2018 though as he’s battled back from Tommy John surgery.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Pirates are 6-2 last 8 road games
- Pirates are 4-1 in Lester’s last 5 starts
- Giants are 1-5 last 6 Sunday games
- Giants are 1-4 in Houser’s last 5 starts
Free St. Louis Pirates vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The road team may have the value in this one. Cueto is Cueto in name only as he makes his 1st big league start in more than a year. It’s going to be a heavy bullpen day for San Francisco – which isn’t good.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates +105
Cueto could be great, but for what – 4 innings?
