Pirates vs. Rockies Preview 8/10/13 - Sportsbetcapping.com

Check out another free pick article. It's also stay tune for some or conference previews this weekend.

We will continue to post free and we have another one on Saturday afternoon. With a lot of preseason NFL games going we bet on a few , but look to get back to more MLB action on Saturday instead of . We changed the requirements for hot starters since we were regularly getting 10+ pitchers on this report to ERA's under 2.50 over their last 3 starts combined.

A.J. Burnett posts a 1.17 ERA over his last three starts and though he just came off a complete game against the Rockies I like for him to pitch well against them once again. For one the Rockies are ice cold and having no Carlos Gonzalez against RHP at home will be a problem. The Rockies are scoring just 2.27 runs per 9 over their last 10 combined and Burnett is an ideal candidate to have success against the Rockies. For one the Rockies have struggled against fast ball pitchers and Burnett is just that throwing 60% fast balls and averaging over 92mph. He's also a ground ball pitcher getting 56% ground balls and he's got a 2.72 ERA on 5 days rest.

Burnett will also face Juan Nicasio who the Pirates have hit well in 2 career starts. In 39 AB the Pirates have a .859 OPS against Nicasio who has really struggled. He's on 5 days rest for the 8th time but he only has 1 start on 5 or more days of rest that lasted more than 5 innings. That means the bullpen will play a critical role and the Rockies bullpen has struggled big time.

Anibal Sanchez (3-0, 20.2 IP, 0.97 WHIP, 1.31 ERA)
Tyson Ross (2-1, 20 IP, 0.70 WHIP, 1.35 ERA)
Tony Cingrani (2-1, 18.2 IP, 1.02 WHIP, 2.41 ERA)
Mark Buehrle (3-0, 22 IP, 0.82 WHIP, 2.05 ERA)
Nathan Eovaldi (1-2, 19 IP, 1.16 WHIP, 1.42 ERA)
Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2, 17.2 IP, 1.42 WHIP, 2.04 ERA)
Felix Doubrant (1-2, 18.2 IP, 1.29 WHIP, 2.41 ERA)
Jeremy Guthrie (3-0, 21 IP, 0.95 WHIP, 1.29 ERA)
Hisashi Iwakuma (1-2, 19 IP, 1.11 WHIP, 0.95 ERA)

Phil Hughes (2-1, 12.1 IP, 2.19 WHIP, 7.30 ERA)
Brad Peacock (0-3, 14.2 IP, 1.84 WHIP, 9.20 ERA)
Juan Nicasio (0-3, 15.1 IP, 1.62 WHIP, 7.04 ERA)
Tom Gorzelanny (1-2, 12 IP, 1.33 WHIP, 6.75 ERA)
