Pittsburgh Pirates 2021 Season

The Pirates haven’t been contenders or made the postseason since 2015. There’s not a star in sight and no signs point to one coming any time soon. After finishing with one of the worst records in baseball last season, the times are certainly dark in Pittsburgh.

What moves can the organization make to turn the ship around?

Betting on the Pittsburgh Pirates

Pirates Spread (Run Line)

When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.

The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.

Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical Cubs game:

  • Philadelphia Phillies (+1.5)
  • Pittsburgh Pirates (-1.5)

As shown above, the Pirates are favored by 1.5 runs against the Phillies; the minus sign (-) indicates Pittsburgh is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Pittsburgh here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Pirates would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Phillies +1.5 would win if Philly won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.

The Pirates were 77-85 on run lines in 2021, covering 47.5 percent of the time – putting them just outside the bottom 10 in the league.

Pirates Moneylines

Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.

Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:

  • Philadelphia Phillies +150
  • Pittsburgh Pirates -180

Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Cubs, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Guardians would net $150 if they pulled the upset.

The Pirates went 61-101 in 2021, putting them in last place in the NL Central and leaving them in the bottom 5 of the league.

Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.

Pirates Over/Unders

Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.

If the number for our hypothetical Pirates-Phillies matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.

Pirates totals in 2021 were in the top half of the league when betting the over, hitting at a 77-76-9 clip.

Pirates Props

Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Bryan Reynolds over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Will Crowr will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.

Pirates Futures

Expectations are low right now in Pittsburgh, so bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Pirates futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Pirates to win the NL Central, win the National League Pennant, win the World Series, or even in dividual awards like winning league MVP.
