Money Line: -161 Pittsburgh
The Pirates are on fire coming into this game. They have won nine consecutive games and will have one of their best pitchers in the rotation on the mound. Jeff Locke has a 7-1 record this season with a 2.06 ERA. He has been lethal in his last three starts posting a 0.86 ERA and 0.762 WHIP. Locke has not lost at home this year and that will not be changing today.
The Phillies will send Jonathan Pettibone to the mound for the start. Pettibone has been horrible on the road posting a 6.39 ERA and the Phillies are 2-4 in those six starts. Even if Pettibone could string together a decent start, which I don't believe he will, he has to get his run support from a Phillies team that is scoring just 3.6 runs per game on the road this season.
***Jimmy Boyd has now delivered three consecutive days of 2-0 performances. He is on a 21-7 (75%) run the last twelve days. Don't miss Tuesday's 4* NEVER LOST No Brainer in a 3-For-1 Profit Pack!***
