Free Pick on Pittsburgh Pirates

St. Louis vs. Pittsburgh, 10/07/2013 15:07
Money Line: +108 Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been one of the most undervalued teams in baseball this season. Their pitching rotation is stacked with talent, and they will send a red hot Charlie Morton to the mound today. In his last three starts Morton has a 1.86 ERA and a 0.983 WHIP. His overall numbers at home this season are not far behind, posting a 2.85 ERA and a 1.174 WHIP. Run support should not be an issue as the Pirates are batting .265 in the playoffs and scoring an average of 4.7 runs per game.

The Cardinal's offense is struggling to get hits in the post season. They have a .222 batting average and find themselves in a tough spot being down 2-1 in the series, and playing on the road tonight. They will sent Michael Wacha to the mound, and I think he will buckle under the pressure of starting in such an important postseason game. Wacha has just three road starts this season and his teams record is 1-2 in those games.
