Major League Baseball
I like the value here with Pittsburgh as short road dogs against the Reds in Sunday's MLB action. The Pirates are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now. Pittsburgh have taken the first two games of the series against Cincinnati and have outscored the Reds 18-3 in those two games. The Pirates have won 8 straight and 10 of their last 11 overall.
Cincinnati are getting some love here from the books because of how well Matt Harvey has been throwing of late, but I just don't see that big of an edge here on the mound with Pittsburgh sending out Ivan Nova. In his last 7 starts Nova has gone 3-1 with a 3.51 ERA. More than anything it's how the two offenses come into this one and it's a big advantage for the Pirates at the plate. Take Pittsburgh!
