MLB Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 17-41 in their last 58 road games vs. a team with a winning record. Pittsburgh is 1-6 in its last seven games against the NL West.

Arizona

The Diamondbacks are 4-0 in their last four during game two of a series. Arizona is 7-1 in its last eight Tuesday games.

Prediction:

Whatever Buchholz has been doing since joining Arizona, it's working. He's the better pitcher in this game considering his recent form, he has the better team backing him and he's at home. The line isn't too much to stomach and the D-backs are hot. Take advantage.
