How To Bet On Pittsburgh Pirates

In 2015, the Pirates were one of the top teams in the National League. Pittsburgh finished the season with a 98-64 record and clinched their third consecutive playoff berth in the process. However, the postseason run for the Bucs was cut short as they were knocked off by division rival Chicago in the NL Wild Card game. Nonetheless, the Pirates have been able to establish a solid core of players and have given themselves a great chance to contend in the toughest division in baseball — the NL Central. [+]

Surrounded by the likes of the St. Louis Cardinals (100+ wins in 2015) and potential World Series favorite in Chicago, Pittsburgh has to do all it can to make a run and that starts with outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

Online Tips For Pittsburgh Pirates Bettors

McCutchen is the clear-cut leader of the Pirates and has been a major part of them going from doormat to contender. The NL MVP in 2013 and a five-time All-Star from 2011-15, McCutchen has not only been one of the best players for the Pirates since the 2010’s started, but also in the entire MLB.

McCutchen led the Pirates in batting average (.292), RBIs (96) and also played nearly the entire season at 157 games played.

He is the rock of the hitting rotation, but he will get some of the load taken off him in 2016 thanks to the maturation of Starling Marte. The leftfielder had his best season to date and was awarded his first Gold Glove to cap off 2015. 

Beyond McCutchen and Marte, the Pirates have a couple other players that can play at an All-Star level. Of the four All-Stars that Pittsburgh had in 2015, one of them was their ace, Gerrit Cole who had a breakout year.

Cole notched a 19-8 record and was named to his first All-Star and was tabbed as the NL Pitcher of the Month in April 2015. Beyond Cole, the Pirates will have to find some new faces to pick up the slack left by veteran A.J. Burnett who retired last season. However, Pittsburgh will still retain the services of closer Mark Melancon who was the NL saves leader in 2015 with 51.

With the Cubs establishing themselves as the dominant leader to start the 2016 season, the Pirates will have their work cut out for them in fending off both them and St. Louis. 

With one of the strongest surges to close the season — the Pirates went 19-8 in August and 15-10 in September — Pittsburgh was one of the best teams in baseball following the All-Star break. In terms of how they matched up against the other teams in the NL Central, the results weren’t as positive. The Bucs registered a losing record against each team in the division, but they did outscore both the Cardinals and Brewers over the entirety of the 2015 season. While this shouldn’t too big of a cause for concern, it should be noted that the Pirates need to be more consistent in 2016 if they want to be the big dog of the NL Central.

As for the rest of the league, the Pirates dominated both the NL West (27-6) and NL East (24-9). They even were an undefeated 6-0 against the eventual NLCS champions, the New York Mets. In fact, the only teams that Pittsburgh registered losing marks against, aside from their division, were the World Series champion Royals (1-2) and the Washington Nationals (3-4). While the Pirates are by no means a perfect team, they are certainly one of the stronger ballclubs in the NL. 

Also another player to watch when starting for the Pirates is pitcher Francisco Liriano. The two-time Comebacl Player of the Year (2010 in the AL and 2013 in the NL), Liriano went 12-7 in 2015. He could be relied on even more heavily with the departure of Burnett and if his body holds up, could be one of the better starting pitching options in baseball. 

With all that information in tow, one of the last things to need to check is the breakout table below for the best betting option for you. This tool will point to the best outlet and wagering price for whatever you are looking for.
