Bumgarner is not having a bad season, he is not getting any run support for all his hard work. I think he will have the same problem today. I don't think there will be a lot of scoring today. The under is probably the safer bet.50%

F5 Under is really attractive as both these teams rank down near the bottom in OPS this year and Pirates are awful against lefties so Bum should have a strong outting. Lyles has looked magnificant too.60%

With the state of the pitching for the Pirates and the offense for the Giants, do not expect this to be an exiting game. I would lean Pittsburgh but the value bet is on UNDER 7.5

It's hard to bet against Bumgarner but the Giants offense has been horrible this year batting .205 this season. Lyles has looked good and comes into this game rested and has the better offense behind him.70%

Bucs Dugout: Lyles makes a big first inning stand up as Pirates down Giants 4-1, but three players leave with injuries
From the second through the sixth inning, Madison Bumgarner allowed no runs on a pair of singles - but in that rain delayed first inning, with two outs and no one on, the Pirates exploded for four runs, their only runs of the game, en route to a 4-1 victory.
In that first inning, Starling Marte lined out hard to center and Melky Cabrera grounded to third before Jung-ho Kang drew a walk and Josh Bell grounded a single to right. Then the fun began when Francisco Cervelli ripped a two-run double into the left field corner. He scored two pitches later when Pablo Reyes singled to left and then went to second on the throw, then Reyes scored when J.
McCovey Chronicles: Giants @ Pirates, 4/19
First, there's a very good chance this game doesn't get played or it gets delayed. If it gets delayed, this is still the thread. If it doesn't get played, this is your evening "Bryan sucks" comments thread.
As I noted in the Series Preview, the Pirates lead the NL Central at 10-6 and despite their cheapskate owner continuing to lower payroll, Neil Huntington and his server room continue to find hidden value in major league castoffs and are still getting solid performance from the remaining star players.
I say solid when maybe "below average" would've been more accurate.
Bucs Dugout: Series Preview: Giants at Pirates
Two of Andrew McCutchen's former employers (suddenly, he's on his fourth team, and we're all getting very old) square off in Pittsburgh for a weekend series.
The Giants remain old, on the downswing and aren't presumed to be a factor in an otherwise exciting and competitive National League West. They did nab Farhan Zaidi from the rival Dodgers over the offseason to be their President of Baseball Operations -- much better than just getting another Evan Longoria or (again, we're getting old) Cutch.
San Francisco dropped two of three this week in Washington, including a 4-2 getaway-day loss while the Pirates were off on Thursday.
