The Pirates and Reds start a pivotal weekend series tonight in Pittsburgh. Find MLB odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are one of the hotter teams in baseball winning their last three games in their series with the Tigers. The Pirates are 8-2 in their last 10 games, 20-9 at home this season, and they are two games behind the Cardinals in the National League Central. The Pirates start Wandy Rodriguez who is having a career year. For the season Rodriguez has allowed 51 hits and 22 earned runs while striking out 41 over 55.1 innings for a 6-2 record and a 3.58 ERA.
The Cincinnati Reds split their series with the Indians in the Battle of Ohio and now it is time for them to get back to business in the NL Central. The Reds are 7-3 in their last 10 games, 13-14 on the road this season, and they are three games behind the Cardinals in the Central. The Reds start Johnny Cueto who makes his third start since returning from the DL. For the season Cueto has allowed 19 hits and nine earned runs while striking out 28 over 29.1 innings for a 2-0 record and a 2.76 ERA.
Even though they are road favorites I like the Reds and Johnny Cueto in this one at online sportsbook reviews.
