MIT Friday MLB Premium Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates -140 - Chris Archer makes his first start for the Pirates. Having pitched with the Rays in the American League his entire career up to this point and now facing mostly National League teams not very familiar with him likely will prove to be a significant edge. He did face the Cardinals last season and had a very strong start with 1 earned run allowed on just 5 hits while striking out 8 in 7 innings. John Gant gets the start for St Louis having allowed 3 earned runs in 5.1 innings in his prior start versus the Pirates this season. Pittsburgh was off yesterday and they are 9-5 this season when playing after a day off. The Pirates also are a red hot 16-5 their last 21 games. Pittsburgh is 12-6 in Friday games. The Cardinals are 2-6 in Gant's 8 starts this season and could be 'spent' after yesterday's dramatic win in the bottom of the 9th. Considering all of the above it is easy to see why, per the simulation, the MIT forecast is a home blowout for the mid-priced favorite
