Pittsburgh Pirates vs Chicago Cubs Live Picks and Odds – Baseball Betting

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Chicago Cubs Live Baseball Betting Picks: The MLB match between Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs will kick off on May 14, 2010 at 2:20 PM ET. This match is scheduled at Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois.

Runs have been hard to come by for the Cubs and Pirates. With the way Chicago's Tom Gorzelanny and Pittsburgh's Brian Burres are pitching, it looks like this trend could continue.

After being swept last week in Pittsburgh, the Cubs hope to exact some revenge Friday when they open a three-game home series against a Pirates team trying to avoid losing its fifth in a row.

The Cubs are a classic ‘public’ team and you’ll always pay a premium to back them–particularly at Wrigley Field. Consider this fact–since 1997 the Cubs are 567-512 at home. Had you bet on the Cubs in every one of these home games you’d have lost -121.7 units.

Pittsburgh swept the Cubs last week at home, and Brian Burres pitched 7 innings allowing 3 hits and no earned runs. That was his second straight start without allowing an earned run. Gorzelanny has a decent 2.83 ERA this season, but the Cubs have lost 5 of his 6 starts.
