Baseball Betting – Colorado at Pittsburgh

May 20th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting on Saturday includes the second game of a three-game series between the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates. Baseball betting online schedule information tells us that the Rockies are playing the 2nd game of a 10-game road trip on Saturday and the Pirates are playing the 5th game of their 6-game homestand. Let’s look at this Saturday matchup between the Rockies and Pirates.

MLB betting trends tell us that the Rockies have won 12 of the last 20 games against the Pirates. That was before this three-game series began. The teams had split their last 10 games at Pittsburgh as MLB betting online numbers show. The teams met for one series in Pittsburgh last season and the Pirates won two of the three games versus the baseball betting odds. All three games were high scoring but only two of the three went over the sports book total. The finals were 7-4, 6-4 (total was 10.5) and 8-4.

Colorado really has not done much right this season versus the baseball betting odds. They haven’t even been very good at home and on the road they have really struggled versus the MLB betting online odds. Online sportsbook gamblers know that the Rockies can sometimes score runs but their stats are inflated since they play in the thin air of Colorado. The Rockies have really struggled with their pitching staff and overall there are not a lot of positives so far this season in terms of MLB betting for the Rockies.

Pittsburgh started strongly this season but they are slipping back into their normal ways again versus the MLB betting odds. The Pirates have been surprisingly good in terms of pitching and that is why they can win versus baseball betting lines. The problem for the Pirates as online sportsbook gamblers know is a weak offense that rarely throws fear into other teams. There are just too many weak spots in their starting lineup for the Pirates to contend on a regular basis versus the MLB betting online odds.

The baseball betting total trends are mixed on this matchup. The under was 11-8-1 in the last 20 games before this MLB betting series began. The over was 5-4-1 in the last ten games at Pittsburgh as sports book statistics show.
