Major League Baseball Top Exposures - May 12: Pirates

Written by:
Published on:

The Pittsburgh Pirates were seeing 70% of the action on the money line facing off against a San Franicsco team that is hovering around the .500 mark. 

Because the line opened at -145 most books and has dipped to -135, it will be important here to pay close mind to San Francisco.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Jeff Samardzija (1-2, 6.62 ERA) vs. Pirates RH Chad Kuhl (4-2, 4.12)

Samardzija has had command issues and gave up two homers in his last start in a loss.  He is 6-4 with a 2.80 ERA in 25 games (14 starts) against the Pirates, including two wins last year.

Kuhl has recorded quality starts in three of his last four outings, and he’s coming off his best showing of the season.  He made his first start against the Giants last season and allowed one run and two hits over six innings in a no-decision.

Why wouldn't this line be longer?
