Baseball Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (60-56) Pittsburgh Pirates, are 3-1 on their current road swing after taking two of three at Colorado and putting up ten-runs last night in a victory in the Bay Area. Manager Clint Hurdle will hand the ball to right-hander Clay Holmes who got his first career win at home on July 14th at PNC Park vs. Milwaukee. The Dothan, Alabama native has two appearances in a starting role with a 3.65 earned run average. Although San Francisco is still in the playoff race doesn’t mean Bruce Bochy is taking anything for granted, after all, they’re seven games out of the divisional and wildcard race. Injuries have decimated the pitching staff this season the latest casualty being starter Johnny Cueto who’s out for the season while Jeff Samardzija is set to return later this month. The prolific pitching rotation is what brought three World Series in six years to the franchise from 2010-14. Even 2014 Ace Madison Bumgarner has been a casualty appearing in just twelve games in 2018 but is slowly returning into form, and they’ll need at his best down the stretch. Game time is 10:15 PM EST at AT&T Park near the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a +110 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight and a half runs for Friday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a chance to get reacquainted with Andrew McCutchen who roamed the outfield in a Bucs uniform for nine-season and lead the Giants with forty-six runs batted in his first season in San Francisco. After Thursday’s win, Pittsburgh is now a .500 team road team and with three more vs. The Giants and then two in an interleague series in Minneapolis should have them playing with more confidence; they’ve also won eight of their last ten away from home. Outfielders Corey Dickerson along with Gregory Polanco are leading the Pirates in five broad hitting categories while Starling Marte and Josh Harrison are also contributing with consistency. The Pirates are behind St.Louis, Milwaukee, and just seven games behind the first place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Pittsburgh is also positioned for the top Wildcard spot in the National League, putting teams on notice are the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at 60/1 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

San Francisco is 1-5 their last six overall, making matter worse is their 2-8 record when playing in front of loyal fans at chilly AT&T Park on the bay. The good news is they’ll have their best starting pitcher in 2018 on the mound tonight. Left-hander Derek Holland has only five wins t to his credit this season with his last four outings resulting in no-decision games, he’s also been used in a reliever role, but San Francisco is 8-3 their previous eleven when Holland gets the start. Bochy hopes he can stop the bleeding to a team that desperately needs a victory. San Francisco will hit the road playing ten games in eleven days from August 13th beginning in Los Angeles and the finale in the Big Apple vs. The Mets. Shortstop Brandon Crawford along with McCutchen have been models of consistency this season playing in nearly all games. Crawford has a team-best one hundred and eleven hits. Bochy understands what it takes to win, and the Giants have the talent and composure to make a run at a playoff berth; don’t count them out. Bovada.Lv, list the San Francisco Giants 40/1 to win the 2018 NLCS.

Bucs are looking to get first win against Lester as they entertain the Cubs.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Top Baseball Daily Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is looking for a way to kick-start his team so they can put some distance between second-place Milwaukee in the National League Central division. What better way to begin a two-day set in Pittsburgh than to send their ace lefty Jon Lester who’s (7-1) with a 3.16 earned run average on the road this season to the hill, more impressive is his 2-0 record vs. Pittsburgh in three starts. Chicago holds a 5-4 advantage in nine meeting with the Pirates thus far in 2018. The Pittsburgh Pirates are third in the division just seven games out of the top spot as we enter August, although the Pirates have a winning record at home manager Clint Hurdle believes they must take it up a notch in their next five in their friendly confines. Game time is 7:05 PM EST at PNC Park where the Three Rivers meet in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Chicago as a -110 road favorite. The betting odds total is Seven, And A Half Runs for Tuesday’s contest.

After two in the Steel City Chicago will travel back to Wrigleyville to entertain San Diego for a four-game series before heading to Kansas City for interleague play and, then it’s back home for five games against Washington and Milwaukee. Major League Bettors have already begun to move the line as Pittsburgh started as a favorite but they’re doing their homework and now Lester who tops MLB pitchers with $1,246 in profits. As good as Lester has been performing the bullpen ranks third in baseball with a 3.21. Infielders Javier Baez and Kris Bryant are one of the primary reason’s the Chicago lineup rank second in Major League Baseball with a .266 team batting average. However, Bryant is Bryant was recently but on the disabled list which puts Anthony Rizzo, Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward in position to take their performance in the batter’s box to another level. Maddon understands he’s got a team capable of bringing home a World Series title, but they must give a maximum effort each game, especially against the lesser talented competition. Bovada.Lv, list the Chicago Cubs at 8/1 to win the 2018 World Series.

Clint Hurdle has been in the dugout for eight seasons in Pittsburgh making the playoffs in 2013-15, but they’ve had two straight seasons without a postseason appearance. It all could turn around quick, and Hurdle has decided to put his best hurler Jameson Taillon on the mound in which should be the best pitching matchup of the night in either league. Taillon is 7-8 this season with one hundred and fourteen strikeouts to his credit; it’ll be his first outing against the Cubs this season. Pittsburgh is playing lights out vs. Divisional opponents this season, their twenty-six victories to ten defeats is the best of any team in the NL Central. With Corey Dickerson and Josh Bell out of the lineup with various injuries Gregory Polanco, David Freese, and Josh Harrison must carry to load against the top money pitcher in the business. Pittsburgh is 13-3 their last sixteen overall but 1-8 when playing on Tuesday’s, another reason the money is going in favor of the Cubs. Bovada.Lv, list the Bovada. Lv, register the Pittsburgh Pirates at 16/1 to win the 2018 NL Central Crown.

A Soft schedule has Nationals looking to close the gap in National League East.

Authored by Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

MLB Betting Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. Expectations in the Nation’s Capital have been high for a half decade, and 2018 is no exception. Management understands there are decisions to make with Bryce Harper, a free agent at season’s end. After taking three of four from Miami over the weekend, they finish out the first half away from home. Washington (45-45), third-place in their division play’s the (41-48) Pittsburgh Pirates, 4th NL Central on Monday, July 9, 2018. Right-hander Ian Nova will take the pitcher’s mound 4-6 with a 4.48 earn run average. Game time is at 7:05 PM EST at PNC Park on the banks of three rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Local Television Networks are broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Washington as a -115 road favorite. The betting odds total is Nine Runs for Monday’s contest.

Washington looks to extend their 2018 three-game winning streak over Pittsburgh; the Nationals hosted Pittsburgh in early May. The Nationals lost five in a row from the end of July until their recent homestand against Miami and rumblings are beginning in the Beltway. However, there is a bright spot in the midst of their poor performance at National Park, where they are two-games below .500. Washington is 7-0 vs. NL Central opponents this season, and they should be able to take advantage with four-games in New York looming before the break. Manager Dave Martinez understands fans frustration, but they would rather have them peaking in September rather than July, they have enough talent to turn it on at any time. Closing a five and a half game lead by first-place Philadelphia would make satisfy the staff. Having Max Scherzer and Harper would put any coaching staff at ease for a moment. Bovada.Lv, list the Washington Nationals at +1,500 to win the 2018 NL World Series.

The Pittsburgh Pirates no longer have the services of Center Fielder Andrew McCutchen or Pitcher Gerrit Cole and find themselves twelve and a half out of first-place in their division. Pittsburgh will host Milwaukee who holds the top spot in the NL Central for five games before the All-Star break on July, 15th. Outfielders Corey Dickerson and Gregory Polanco are swinging a hot bat for Pittsburgh with Starling Marte also being solid as usual hitting the ball. Second baseman Josh Harrison returned from the disabled list late last month, his services will be a need in the second half of 2018 if Pittsburgh is to make a run at the Cubs, Cardinals, and Milwaukee. Although the Pirates are above .500 at home, they are 1-7 their last eight and have lost seven of ten overall. Bovada. Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +8,000 to win the 2018 NL Central Crown.
