Scared Bookie: The Pittsburgh Pirates Go On Tear

The Pittsburgh Pirates have won six straight and twelve of their last fourteen games, sending a shiver through the spine of those bookies serving up this region as well as any online bookmaker or sportsbook taking action on the Pirates of late.

Bookies and agents alike will need a strong support system in the form of a Pay Per Head business and sportsbook software solution if they wish to escape the blood letting and maybe even walk away with a profit during this tough stretch.

One of the largest Pay Per Head companies on the planet, AcePerHead.com is a full service, 24/7 provider of online bookmaking software with odds on nearly every sport, monitored every second in order to be responsive to injury and trade news as well as sharp action coming in.   AcePerHead.com also offers LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING for all nationally televised games right up to the final second of play.

So what’s up with the Pirates?

“When we play our best baseball we can compete with any team out there,” said Andrew McCutchen, who had three hits and reached base five times. “Right now we’re doing it. Our starting pitchers have been phenomenal, and that’s the main reason we’re doing what we’re doing.”

Rookie Josh Bell had a career-high four hits and Jordy Mercer homered for the Pirates.

“We’re playing really well right now and this road trip is big for us,” Pittsburgh starting pitcher Trevor Williams said. “If we finish good with this road trip, things are looking up for us.”

The Pirates have caught many a bookie off guard as this explosive play has only moved them a single game over the .500 mark.
