MLB Betting Trends
The over is 8-2 in the last 10 Pirates road games. Pittsburgh is 7-15 in Nova's last 22 road starts.
The Dodgers are 29-13 in their last 42 games overall. The under is 11-4-2 in the last 17 Los Angeles games on a Tuesday.
Kershaw is still struggling to find his elite form, but his pretty good is better than most pitchers' best. Against a struggling Pittsburgh offense, I'd be surprised if he doesn't have one of his better outings of the season. Take os Angeles to win here.and dont be afraid of the run line.
