Pittsburgh Pirates vs New York Mets 8/14/2023 Betting Picks

Carrasco has struggled for the Mets, but I don’t trust the Pirates to excel on the road. I anticipate Carrasco allowing runs while on the mound, which is why I’m opting for the over in the first 5 innings. Explore more insights with our daily premium picks.

Free Pick and Prediction: OVER in the F5 innings.
