Why The Pirates Could Cover The Spread

Urena is getting the start for Colorado and he has not pitched well at all. In three starts, Urena has pitched 10 innings and given up 17 hits, 13 total runs and five home runs. His strikeout to walk ratio is not good either as he has struck out seven, but walked eight. The Pirates put up a whole bunch of runs Monday night and could do the same in this one. With the game being in Colorado, the Pirates just need to put good swings on the ball and it will fly. Urena is prone to giving up the home run, so he allows a lot of hard contact. Pittsburgh might get into the Rockies bullpen early, just as they did in game one.

Why The Rockies Could Cover The Spread

The Rockies will face Velasquez. He was good his last time out, but has two below average starts on the season. In 13 1/3 innings pitched, Velasquez has allowed 14 hits, walked seven and given up two home runs. The Rockies will need C.J Cron, Charlie Blackmon, Ryan McMahon, and Kris Bryant to have big games if they want to keep this one close. They can not expect to shut down the Pirates offense, so Colorado needs to get it done with their bats.

Final Pirates-Rockies Prediction & Pick

This game has the potential to be high scoring again. Pittsburgh is playing well and their bats are hot. If they can keep the Rockies to below four runs, they will win this game and cover the spread. They should be able to hit Urena, and Velasquez will be coming in with confidence after a solid outing in St. Louis. If the Pirates just stick to their approach and do what they have been all season, they will have no problem in this game.

Final Pirates-Rockies Prediction & Pick: Pirates -1.5 (+138), Under 13 (-110)
