Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Betting

As hard as it may be to believe for younger fans and gamblers, the Pittsburgh Pirates used to be a thing. From 1970 through 1979, the “Lumber Company” was a perennial World Series contender, taking the Fall Classic twice in that span with six playoff appearances. From 1990-92 Barry Bonds and company had their hearts broken in three consecutive failures in the National League Championship Series. Twice did the Bucs lose in seven games. After a lost generation, Clint Hurdle arrived as manager and led the Pirates to the playoffs three straight seasons from 2013 through 2015. Other than that, it has been nothing but misery for Pittsburgh. And that is almost certain to continue for the 2021 season. In fact, gamblers have turned their backs on the Bucs in droves. Pittsburgh is one of the biggest longshots on the board. And there is plenty of good reason for that status.

2021 Season Preview

Last year the Pittsburgh Pirates finished 19-41 with a .317 win percentage. The Bucs were 26-28-6 under the total. Pittsburgh was dead last in the five team National League Central Division. MLB metrics showed the Pirates 30th for run production, 28th for batting average, 30th for OPS, 28th for home runs, 28th for stolen bases, 19th for earned run average, 18th for WHIP, 28th for quality starts, 20th for the bullpen, and 29th for fewest errors committed.

General manager Ben Cherington is focused on rebuilding the Pirates minor league system. He has traded away such stalwarts as Josh Bell, Joe Musgrove, and Jameson Taillon. The Pirates are going to build from within, just like they did for their three year window when Clint Hurdle was the manager.

Manager Derek Shelton took over last year and suffered through managing a franchise that was blowing itself up for a massive rebuild. Shelton was a major league coach from 2005 through 2019.

The Pirates lack a marquee man in the lineup but cleanup hitter Bryan Reynolds could prove to be a difference maker. In the 2019 season, Reynolds hit .314 with 37 doubles, 16 home runs, 83 runs, 68 runs batted in, and a .880 OPS. Last year was a disaster at the plate with a .189 average and .632 OPS. Everyone assumes it was a pandemic related setback.
