PA Sports Betting

Register on these sportsbooks to bet on the Pirates in the Keystone State.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are the pride and joy of many in the ‘Burgh, but their recent prowess in the MLB hasn’t given fans much cause to celebrate. Pirates haven’t won the World Series since 1979 (one of the longest championship droughts in the main U.S. sports) and haven’t qualified for the postseason since 2015. This season isn’t looking too bright for the Buccos either, but a gameday at one of the most beautiful parks in the League is sure to cheer up all fans.

⚾ Season’s Stats

It’s been yet another rough season for the Pirates, as they stumbled out of the gate in April and lost a bunch of match-ups. Since then, the pace has picked up a notch. With injuries to some veteran players, the Bucs have been bringing up some new talent on consistently.

Season Record 62-100
Team Batting Average .220
Best Hitter Bryan Reynolds
Most Home Runs Bryan Reynolds
Team Runs 591
Best Pitcher Mitch Keller
Team Earned Run Average 4.72

Pitching

The fifth spot of the pitchers’ starting rotation is still up in the air, as the fifth spot has been bounced through the bullpen. Although the pitching work this season hasn’t been great, the future might be rosy in the ‘Burgh if some of the prospects get to show off their talents.

Hitting

Hitting has not been excellent this year, as the Pirates are at the bottom of the League for both batting average and OPS. However, with the rookies gaining more confidence as they get more majors outings under their belts, the Pirates future is starting to look brighter.

⚾ How to Bet on the Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates, and the MLB in general, offer plenty of betting opportunities for all fans. If you are not sure how to get started, below are short explanations on all the main bet types which you can bet on in-game and pre-game. Unfortunately, no betting is allowed on the Pierogi Race.

  • Moneyline: Moneyline bets are for the winner of the game. So if you think the Pirates are going to win, but you don’t want to speculate on the result, you can place a moneyline wager.
  • Runline/Spread: Runlines are bets on the winner (by a certain margin). If you think the Pirates are going to win by more than two runs, you can place a spread bet for them. Alternatively, if the Bucs are considered the underdog, you can bet that they stay within a two runs of the opponent. The spread is usually +/- 1.5 but check it before wagering.
  • Total: Total bets are wagers on the total number of runs in the game, by both teams. You can bet Over or Under and usually these range from 6 to 9 runs per game.
  • Props: Proposition bets can be placed on individual players or teams, and they range from the first team to score a run to the next player to hit an RBI and so forth. Many options are available for in-game wagering for each game.
  • Futures: If you want to place a bet on the Pirates to win the World Series, you’ll need to place a future bet.

Next Man Up

Next Man Up

The Pirates have a 40-man roster filled with young talent looking to break into the active roster, and manager Shelton has said the team is trying to foster the competitive mentality. Since the team is quite inexperienced, don't expect long winning streaks.

Who's the 5th Starter?

Who's the 5th Starter?

With manager Derek Shelton in his third year leading the Pirates, the team is focusing on cultivating their young talent to make a move up in the standings.

⚾ 2021 Season

2021 was not kind to the Bucs, as they had their 9th season in team history with over 100 losses. With an overall record of 61-101, Pirates finished last in their division and second-to-last in NL. During offseason, Pirates shuffled both the coaching staff and the roster, in the hopes of having a better 2022 season.
