The Rockies are 25-64 in their last 89 road games and 4-11 in their last 15 Friday games. The Pirates are 21-44 in their last 65 games as an underdog and 5-16 in their last 21 Friday games. The under is 6-1 in Rockies last 7 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Pirates last 4 overall. The Rockies are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Pittsburgh and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings.
The Colorado Rockies aren’t the most consistent team in the world, but they have Jon Gray on the mound who has been more than solid this season and rather impressive if we’re being honest. The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to be unbackable during their six-game losing streak and their offense is getting down right pathetic. Backing the Rockies on the road isn’t the best option, but it certainly beats betting on the Pirates in their current form.
