1-0 last selection. YTD 58-38-2 +34.98 units
Pittsburgh Pirates don't conjure image of high powering offense, but that what they are this season and defense being crap the Bucs have come up big as the premiere Over team of 2008. Current O/U records 53-30-5 averaging 10.5 runs per game. Getting the ball will be Ian Snell returning from D/L without any minor league tune up he'll be on a close watch. On the flip side Brandon Backe very hard to read, but I'd say he'll improve from his last outing maybe record a quality start or close to it. All in all this game on the surface has the look of bats lighting up the scoreboard, but the Bucs protect their home turf better, pitchers pitch better and Backe is UNDER machine. The selection I'm getting to is fading the obvious Over as the number has climbed from 9.5 to 10 and I don't think it'll reach 10 so taking the risk at 9.5 UNDER.
HOU/PIT UNDER 9.5 at +133 for 1 unit(W)
