Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Reds dropped seven of their previous eight games, including seven of their last eight at home.

 

Even at home, where they average fewer than four runs per game, they are one of the league’s worst offensive teams. Even though Thompson struggled on the road this season, he pitched effectively against the Reds, giving up only five earned runs in two starts, and should have no issue holding their offense in check.

 

The Pirates suffered offensively as well but recently performed well, scoring 12 runs in their previous three games. Cincinnati’s starters and bullpen both struggled this season, with the Reds allowing more than 6 runs per game at home.

 

They allowed at least five runs in six of their previous seven games and will have a difficult time slowing down the Pirates, so take Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
