MLB Betting Trends

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 17-5 in their last 22 Sunday games. Milwaukee is 1-4 in its last five games versus the AL Central.

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 8-2 in their last 10 home games. Pittsburgh is 4-1 in its last five games versus a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

Pittsburgh has been rolling at home and Musgrove is in decent form right now. With how good the Pirates offense has been as of late, Musgrove should get the run support needed here. In a jam-packed NL Central race, the Pirates need every win they can get as they look to climb the standings. I think the wrong team is the slight favorite going. Taking the hosts to win.
