Pirates best bet in baseball; riding nine-game winning streak
The Pittsburgh Pirates have been the best bet in baseball for most of the season, but they’ve been especially profitable over the past nine games.
The Pirates have won nine consecutive contests and boast the best record in baseball (51-30).
The Bucs have been underdogs in five of the nine games and any $100 bettor would be up a cool $1,000.79 if they had wagered on each game of the streak.
The Pirates open a three-game set with the Philadelphia Phillies at PNC Park Tuesday. Pittsburgh is 3-1 against the Phillies so far this campaign and is a -159 favorite at BetOnline for the opener of the set.
Pirates bettors are up a league-high 27.30 units - by far the most profitable team in the bigs.
