Both of these teams have started the season much better than expected and what could have been a boring series in baseball betting odds now looks pretty good.
Baseball odds information tells us that this is the second game of a three-game series between the two teams. Before this series began the Pirates had won 11 of the last 20 games between the two teams and they were 6-4 in the last ten at Pittsburgh as baseball odds stats indicate.
Cincinnati has been winning games in baseball odds this season because of their pitching. Bronson Arroyo and Aaron Harang is a very potent top of the rotation for the Reds and when either of these two is on the mound the Red have a good chance to win in baseball odds. The rest of the staff has some question marks but there are times when someone like Johnny Cueto will throw a gem. The offense for the Reds this season has been all about Joey Votto as baseball odds stats tell us. He needs some help though if the Reds are to continue their success versus the baseball betting odds.
Pittsburgh has also gotten solid pitching this season that has impacted the baseball betting odds. Zach Duke and Paul Maholm have been as good as Harang and Arroyo which gives the Pirates some hope they can continue to be successful versus the baseball odds. The Pirates have also been pleasantly surprised by their offense which has been better than expected. Andy LaRoche started the season off very well and the Pirates were impacting baseball odds on a nightly basis.
This series in baseball odds has seen some interesting totals. The games in Cincinnati tend to go over when these teams meet but they go under the baseball betting odds when the games are in Pittsburgh. Before the series began the under in baseball odds was 8-2 in the games at Pittsburgh. That streak includes eight of the last nine games between the two at Pittsburgh going under the baseball odds. With excellent pitching at the top of these two rotations there could be some low scoring games again in this series.
