Pittsburgh Pirates vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Pittsburgh Pirates are only 23-35 this season. But the recent signs give hope that they are on the right trajectory and could improve their season record. Los Angeles Dodgers are amongst the high-profile teams. They have made a good start this season, but a recent stutter, six defeats in the last nine matches, has dampened the mood inside Dodgers camp. Still, they are too good a team and we back them to turn their form around for good.
