The Pittsburgh Pirates have been the best bet in baseball for most of the season, but they’ve been especially profitable over the past week.
The Pirates have won six straight games to rise to the top of the NL Central standings entering play Thursday.
The Bucs have been underdogs in five of the six contests and any $100 bettor would be up a cool $828.64 if they had wagered on each game of the streak.
Pittsburgh opens a six-game homestand against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday. The Brew Crew is in town for three games before the Philadelphia Phillies roll into PNC Park for a three-game set. The Bucs have a 6-4 record against the Brewers this season and are 3-1 against the Phillies in 2013.
Pirates bettors are up a league-high 24.30 units so far this campaign.
