Pit  P Francisco Liriano (9-3, 2.00 ERA) is in complete beast mode right now. He’s given up just 17 runs in 12 starts and just 3 home runs the entire season. He hasn’t given up more than 8 hits the entire season. He’s won his last 4 decisions, and 6 of 7 overall, and the Pirates have won his last 6 of 7 starts.

Cin P Mike Leake (8-4, 2.69 ERA) has given up 9 runs in his past 4 games, but in his past 10 has given up 2 runs or less 8 times. He has been hit by the long ball the past 2 games giving up 3 home runs in total.  Leake’s just 1-1 in his last 4 starts and has a 4-3 lifetime record vs the Pirates in 14 starts.

Motown’s Money Analysis

The Pirates have won 3 of their last 4 despite losing the last game before the All star break. However the month of July hasn’t been great overall going just 5-7 in 12 games and starting to make people question if the Pirates will have the ability to stay the path the rest of the season. In their last 9 games they’ve allowed 2 runs or less 6 times.

The Reds are 7-6 in July, and depending how you look at their recent record, have won 3 of 5, or lost 5 of 8 playing very average as they’ve also rotated winning and losing for their last 6 games. The upside of their past 5 offensively is that they’ve scored 25 runs vs Atlanta and Milwaukee.

The Computer projects a W for the Pirates tonight and with Liriano on the mound anything that is plus money makes the bet worthwhile. We will proceed with caution however as July is a strong month for favorites, and betting RIGHT after the all-star games tends to be erratic.

PCG’s Subscriber Newsletter tells us:

*This season, the Pittsburgh Pirates are 24-10 (70.6%, +15.23 units, +37.6% roi) SU after scoring just 2 runs or less and 6-1 with any days of rest.

Dyce for Dummies

Before reading Motown’s Money Analysis, I was thinking the Pirates were the play here. Liriano has been dominating and it’s inspiring confidence from this novice gambler. When I read the stats that Pro Computer Gambler provided it reinforced my initial gut’s feeling. And that is always a good sign.

The Pirates batting isn’t the best in the league, but they’re consistent with no real difference between home and away games or righties and lefties.
