The New York Yankees continue to put forward an unstable performance; in their last 6 performances, they’ve scored only one victory 10:3 against Toronto Blue Jays.
In a particularly tough match, they lost 8-9 against Philadelphia Phillies, giving up two points in the final inning. Yankees’ pitchers perform poorly, Severino, Kovart, and Neely’s ERA Index exceeded 10.0.

- 1XBet Over/Under: Under 10.5
The Pittsburgh Pirates are worse off than their competition, playing without any victories in what is now 4 matches.
In their last game, the Pirates did not have any tangible attacking plan. That game ended at 1:7 with Toronto.
However, this result can be forgiven, as this is just the preseason and the available players are merely being tested. Pittsburgh is in the penultimate place in the National League.
MLB Expert Picks place the New York Yankees as the favourites to win this matchup. They have already defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates twice and will want to recreate this effect today.
The Pirates will deliver the same weak performance they’ve had for the preseason, so there is no clear way they’ll go into this match without making mistakes. New York will pressure them and get a landslide victory.
Final Prediction: New York Moneyline.
