Lucchesi hasn't been in the greatest form and has giving up some runs in his last couple of starts. I used to really believe in this kid but have kind of changed my tune. While he's pitching in another pitching park, he has been getting hit hard. The one thing that is often written about the Padres is "they are a right handed heavy team" which usually plays against them but not today. Brualt is not a good pitcher and he gives up a lot of fly balls the the padres have some hitters that smash righties. With this all being said, the total already moved up half a run but I think that's not enough, i'm all over this over!70%

Lucchesi is quickly becoming a rotation anchor. With the Padres in need of a deep outing, Lucchesi blanked the Brewers for seven innings on Monday. His newfound cutter has given him a third weapon along with his fastball and "churve." I'm not high on Brault, but he has posted a 2.05 ERA while holding opponents to a .677 OPS in 30 2/3 innings over six appearances. He has completed six innings in each of his last two starts while allowing only two runs. With neither offense really impressing, this is another game I think goes under the number today.60%

I like Pittsburgh at plus odds to complete the sweep at home. They seem to have found a spark in some of their youngs guys that got brought up. I like how their line up is looking top to bottom and I think they will put up runs against Lucchesi who struggles on the road. The Padres are also 0-5 in their last 5 games against the Pirates and I think that trend continues Sunday.60%
