Pittsburgh vs Chicago Best Bet
June 22, 00:05 UK time
Welcome to Matt Swarmer Day in the Steel City of Pittsburgh as the starter for the Cubs is about to help us all cash another ticket on Tuesday night. The crowd at PNC Park is going to sit down for the start of the game and before the 5th inning ends they will see their team score at least 3 runs.
Matt Swarmer is the sole reason why we don’t have to over-analyze stats or numbers because we can bank on one thing to surely happen today. Will Matt Swarmer give up another home run on the road? All right, well, maybe I will point out a few stats for you since everyone loves numbers support, right?
Matt Swarmer has made 4 starts since being called up to the big boy roster and there is one constant we are seeing time and again when he takes the mound. I watched that Yankees start of his on June 11 and 4 people in the crowd hit home runs along with the other 6 Yankee bats that crushed him that night. They let me bat in the 6th and I hit one out too!
So, there is no system, and there is no reason to go to another website to look for a bunch of stats to support this tip. The goal is to cash tickets and the best bet of the night is the Pirates Over 2.5 runs in the 1st 5 innings. It’s not the line setters are doing anything to make it tough for us either because the price shows nearly even money for the offer and the Pirates should be able to smash a few balls out of the park off Swarmer.
Roaney Contreras is making the start for the Pirates and he too is prone to giving up the long ball lately. The ERA of 3.06 is impressive for someone in his rookie campaign considering he is playing in Pittsburgh for goodness sakes. Wins are hard to come by in this town but today should be one that the Buccs find a W. The line setters are pointing to a convincing Pirates win, but that line is too stiff at 1.65 for me to go near.
I like this total of 8.5 to fly over, and it sure helped to watch Pittsburgh break out for a dozen runs last night in the first game of this series with the Cubbies. I am banking on Swarmer to be his normal self and the Buccs to keep those bats swinging early and often tonight.
