The Pittsburgh Pirates are ready to close out this series with the St. Louis Cardinals at home in Game 4 Monday. They know that they don't want to go back to St. Louis.
Pittsburgh is an impressive 52-31 at home this season, while St. Louis is 43-39 on the road. Rarely will you get this good of a home team as an underdog. I'll take advantage tonight as the city of Pittsburgh will be rocking once again.
Charlie Morton isn't getting the kind of respect he deserves from oddsmakers. The right-hander has gone 7-4 with a 3.26 ERA in 20 starts this season, allowing just six homers over 116 innings pitched. Morton is 2-2 with a 2.85 ERA in nine home starts, and 0-0 with a 1.86 ERA in his last three starts overall.
The Pirates are a very profitable 45-31 (+26.9 Units) against the money line as an underdog of +100 or higher this season. The Pirates are 7-1 in their last 8 games as an underdog. St. Louis is 0-5 in its last 5 during Game 4 of a series. The Cardinals are 0-4 in their last 4 playoff road games. Pittsburgh is 10-2 in its last 12 during Game 4 of a series. St. Louis is 2-8 in its last 10 meetings in Pittsburgh. Take the Pirates Monday.
