5* National League Game of the Year on Pirates -161
I normally don't lay this must juice, but I believe the Pirates are well worth in at home with Burnett on the bump.
The Pirates are 24-9 in their last 33 home games and 10-1 in their last 11 games as a favorite of -151 to -200. Even more importantly, they are a perfect 10-0 this season in Burnett's home starts, during which he has posted an ERA of 2.00. The Padres bring Marquis to the hill, and he has an ERA of 5.82 on the road. It is also worth noting that the Pirates are 16-1 in Burnett's last 17 starts. With the way the Pirates have been playing at home, and with as dominant as Burnett has been at home, I love them here.
