Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati, 08/01/2015 19:10 EDT, Score: 3 - 4

Money Line: -138 Pittsburgh

Sportsbook: SportBet

Result: Loss

*3 Star MLB Moneyline Value* I had my eye on this one last night, and now the line has dropped to the point where I see enough value to make it a play. Gerrit Cole is a contender for the Cy Young award in the National League. I back Cole whenever I get the chance. He actually doesn't have very good numbers against Cincinnati, but I'm still confident in his ability to get a quality start. Raisel Iglesias has good raw stuff, but he gives up a lot of home runs and that's a really bad thing this time of the year at Great American Ballpark. Cole is a ground ball guy. The Pirates offense has heated up lately, and Pittsburgh has a huge bullpen advantage over Cincinnati. That's important because Iglesias rarely pitches deep into a game. Lay the price here with the favorite. Take Pittsburgh.
