A key to baseball handicapping is the ability to unearth hidden gems among a sea of baseball betting tips. Those whose focus is baseball betting have certainly done the research and have come up with the fact Pirates have an 8-0 road streak vs A.L. West opponents including 3-0 vs Rangers. Additionally, Niese's teams (Pit/Mets) have thrived when he tosses on the road posting a sparkling 10-1 last eleven in hostile territory.
Taking an underdog is always a risky proposition, though in this case, the amount of supporting data in favor of Pirates makes it much less risky.
