Pirates vs. Yankees Predictions and Odds on Friday through Sunday!

Pittsburgh vs NYY MLB

The Pittsburgh Pirates were carried by one of the top pitching staffs in Major League Baseball last year and that helped cover for a lineup that was in the bottom half of run production and suffered from inconsistency. This year that great pitching that also helped make the Pirates one of the biggest money makers on the betting board for the past two seasons has been missing and the result of that has been big losses both on the diamond and on the betting board. The New York Yankees hardly have the metrics of a first place team but lead the American League East due to a lack of serious competition and quality from their rivals. The New York Yankees will host the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 3 game interleague weekend series at Yankee Stadium that will run Friday through Sunday. Friday night’s game will start at 7:05 PM ET with Saturday afternoon’s starting time set for 4:05 PM ET and a Sunday afternoon start set for 1:05 PM ET.

Gushing Losses

The Pirates ranked as one of the biggest money losing teams with the MLB odds and were fighting to stay ahead of the last place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central. Pittsburgh ranked 26th for run production and 14th for earned run average. The New York Yankees showed a modest profit for 2014 and were trying to stay head of the Baltimore Orioles in the American League East with a pitching staff that ranked 20th for ERA.

The Pick!

Heading into this series the New York Yankees have won 7 out of their last 9 games against the Pittsburgh Pirates with just 2 out of the last 9 meetings between the New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates going under the total. The New York Yankees have won all 6 of their previous home games against the Pittsburgh Pirates as just 1 out of the last 6 games at Yankee Stadium between the Pirates and Yankees have gone under the total. Based on their head to head dominance we’ll call for the New York Yankees and over the total in this one.
