The Pirates were restricted to just four runs from the plate and are now a long way behind the .500 mark. Pittsburgh Pirates have struggled to meet the odds in the past games and they are at the bottom of the NL Central Division. Pittsburgh will need to win 20 games to get back to the .500. The Pirates struggled to cope with Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday and their batting squad was unable to get to seven runs scored by the Angeles.

However, if forced to pick, Im still not a fan of the Cubs on the road, and while Lester has had success against Pittsburgh in the past and is coming off of a decent start at Cincinnati in his last outing, this is still a pitcher in Lester who has allowed 19 runs, 17 earned, across just 14 innings of work in his last three starts. I covered this game yesterday and missed on the over, but what was more surprising was Pittsburgh escaping with a win. Pittsburgh has lost the last four game that Brault has started, but the Pirates are at home where you should play your best and Brault has pitched well enough to give the Pirates a chance, so Ill take a shot at Pittsburgh and the plus money here. Either way, this isnt a game Im trying to get behind. Or maybe it wasnt surprising given the Cubs form on the road.

Plus, thePittsburgh Piratesare currently 42-43 SU on the season, won their last game over the Chicago Cubs and allowed 5 runs against in their last game.

TheChicago Cubsare coming off a 6-5 lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates and are currently coming off a 6 Game Road Trip.

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates Preview & Prediction (07/04/2019)

The Cubs need this game way more than Pittsburgh does, so Ill lay the juice with the Cubs on the road behind another strong start from Quintana. Quintana also hasnt taken a loss in any of his last eight starts dating back to late-May. The plus money with Pittsburgh would be worth a look, but Keller is still young in his career, and still has to prove that hes capable of handling the big boys despite a solid start on the road last time out. This is a hefty price for the Cubs on the road given their struggles away from Wrigley, but Quintana has been rolling, giving up one earned in back-to-back starts while striking out 21 over that short span.
