Underdog Pittsburgh Pirates Will Win; Phillies vs. Lincecum Winner Up As Well

OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a Tuesday betting pick and it is on the Pittsburgh Pirates (+160) to Atlanta.

Reasoning: I’m a big Braves believer this season and have nothing but a ton of respect for Tommy Hanson who can be great at times. Atlanta does win this game more than they don’t down at Turner Field but at this price why the heck not take a shot with the scrappy little Buccos and a guy that has been great thus far this season in Jeff Karstens.


The Pirates will cash in as an underdog, but will Tim Lincecum?

Is the Pittsburgh right-hander truly great? No I don’t believe he has just all of a sudden found himself six or whatever years into his major league career but give credit where credit is due. Karstens is 8-5 with an insane era of 2.28 and seems to go seven innings or more every outing allowing very little if anything. The former Yankee has been feeling comfortable on the mound and at the very worst should at least keep the Pirates in this game as well. I just don’t all of a sudden see an implosion, as Karstens right now is just too solid for that to happen.

Hanson has some great stuff and it wouldn’t shock me if we see him dazzle at times here against what is still a mediocre Pittsburgh offense. But getting a handsome price like this back with Karstens is analogous to yesterday’s comp play winner of getting even more back with a hot Aaron Harang against the superior Cliff Lee and the fabulous Phillies.

The bottom line is that anytime you can get a pitcher who has been great at a price that is this high You just flat out have a must play, period, end of story.

Top expert pick on this game: Pittsburgh from Matt Rivers

For more information: A great game in the City of Brotherly Love and I’m all over it and I mean all over it! Not only do I have a play on this thing but I have two plays on it. 400,000* Giants-Phillies side along with a 200,000* on the first 5. Bonus 300,000* from the nation’s capital involving the Marlins and Nationals.
