MLB Free Betting Pick Yankees VS Pirates

Saturday MLB Free Betting Pick Yankees VS Pirates

NY Yankees +110   Pittsburgh Pirates -120   O/U 7.5

The New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates play game 2 of their 3 game interleague series at PNC Park, Saturday at 4pm. The Yankees are off to a hot start this season thanks in large part to an 8 game win streak and 9 of their last 10. The Yanks are currently in 2nd place in the AL East with a 10-5 record. The Over/Under is 9-6 in Yanks games this season. The Pittsburgh Pirates are off to about the start that we all thought they would going 6-9 in their first 15 games and scoring a measly total of 49 points. The Over/Under is 5-10 in Pirates games this season.

For This RideTheHotHand.com Free Pick we are going after the money line. The Yankees hot start is a direct result of their hot bats. The Yankees are in the Top 5 in Runs, Home Runs, RBI’s and Average. Chase Headley and Starlin Castro are 2nd and 3rd in the AL in batting average, and Aaron Judge is 3rd in the AL in home runs. This has all led to the Yankees being 5th in Major League Baseball in runs. The Yankees starting pitcher Michael Pineda is off to a great start as well going 2-1 with 2 quality starts and an ERA under 3.5. His only loss came in first start a 4-1 loss to Tampa when the bats were held down. On the other side 2nd year starter Jameson Taillon has been the lone bright spot for the Pirates in 3 starts he is 1-0 getting 2 no decisions but he has only given up 3 runs in those starts. In his last outing he threw 108 pitches over 7 inning in a win over the Cubs. In this game look for Taillon to not be as sharp and come back down to Earth as Michael Pineda out pitches him and the Yankee bats prevail. THE PICK: YANKEES +110
