MLB Free Pick | Pirates at Padres
To all y’all who only bet football, and consider this the “offseason” of betting, you’re missing out. The NBA and NHL Playoffs are close to having this year’s Finals set, MLB is in full swing, the PGA is getting front headlines (and offers great betting value), as well as countless other avenues to bet this time of year.

Game: Pittsburgh Pirates (23-20, 23-20 ATS) at San Diego Padres (23-23, 21-25 ATS)
When: 4:10 PM ET, Sunday, May 19th, 2019
Where: Petco Park, San Diego, California
Current Line: PIT -102 SD -108 Total: 8
TV Coverage: AT&T SportsNet-Pittsburgh, FS San Diego
Probable Pitchers: Joe Musgrove (2-4, 3.59 ERA) vs. Cal Quantrill (0-1, 3.60 ERA)
I’ve been on the Pirates a few times the past couple weeks, including Musgroves’ last start on Tuesday, a 6-2 win in Arizona as a +145 dog. They’re not that big of a dog this afternoon in SD at -102, but are a dog nonetheless.
After winning 5 in a row mid-April, then losing 8 straight to follow that stretch, the Pirates are 11-6 including the last 2 in SD after losing the first one.
Musgrove was showing top-end stuff to start the season, not allowing an earned run in his first 15.1 innings. He followed that up allowing only 6 earned over 19.2 innings in his next 3 starts, but then he started taking on water allowing 5 and 8 earned in his next two starts, respectively. He righted the ship in his last start, the aforementioned 6-2 win in Arizona here he allowed 1 hit, no runs with 2 walks and 5 K’s in 7 strong.
Young Cal Quantrill takes the mound for the Friars, who has 2 starts to his credit so far this season. It’s actually pitched quite well, allow 2 earned runs in each start, striking out 8 and walking 3 over 10 innings.
The Pirates enjoy playing in San Diego, where they’ve won 5 of their last 7. Expect Musgrove to put in a quality start, helping Pittsburgh to the W.
