  • Sean Zerillo's MLB model helps you find edges when betting moneylines and over/unders for the full game and first five (F5) innings.
  • He analyzes Friday's slate of games, including how to bet Mets-Pirates (7:05 p.m. ET).
  • Plug in your odds to the spreadsheet at the bottom of this article to see where you might have an edge.

The Mets (53-55) and Pirates (47-61) begin a three-game series in Pittsburgh on Friday. Last weekend, the Mets swept the Pirates at home and they haven’t lost since, coming into tonight’s game on a seven-game winning streak with an outside chance at capturing a wild card.

Though the Mets are still in the playoff race, and the Pirates are looking ahead to 2020, there isn’t too much of a gap in true talent level between these two clubs, and the Pirates should still be favored at home here.
