MLB Betting Trends

Pittsburgh

The Pirates are 2-12 in their last 14 games overall. Pittsburgh is 0-4 in its last four games versus a left-handed starter. 

New York

The Mets are 7-2 in the last nine Matz home starts. New York is 3-7 in its last 10 home games versus a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

Williams was awesome and efficient last season, but hasn't been able to find that same magic in 2019. He was solid his last time out, however, and could be turning a corner in the season's last two months. With Matz being inconsistent and allowing so many baserunners, I think there is a good chance Pittsburgh jumps on him early and rides Williams with a lead. The Pirates have struggled over the last few weeks, but New York is one of those teams that can never seem to string wins together for very long. This is a good spot for a dog bet.
