The Pittsburgh Pirates attempt to halt their three-game losing streak when they host the Colorado Rockies on Monday for the opener of their three-game series. Pittsburgh (16-24) hopes for better results on the second half of its six-game homestand after being swept by St. Louis over the weekend. Colorado (19-21) dropped a 2-0 decision to the New York Mets on Sunday to complete a 3-6 homestand. First pitch at PNC Park is set for 6:35 p.m. ET.
Pittsburgh is listed as a -140 favorite (risk $140 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Pirates vs. Rockies odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total runs scored is 7.5 (see the latest lines for every game on our MLB odds page).

The model knows Pittsburgh has lost five of its last six overall contests, getting outscored 46-14 during that span. The Pirates were trounced 18-4 by St. Louis on Sunday in a game in which they surrendered 20 hits and yielded four or more runs in three different innings. Right-hander JT Brubaker set a career high with 10 strikeouts against the Chicago Cubs in his last start but gave up six runs en route to his fourth loss in as many decisions this season.
The model also knows Colorado, which is beginning a seven-game trek, owns the worst road record in the National League at 5-10 and went 1-5 on its last trip. Brendan Rodgers recorded two of the Rockies' six hits on Sunday to extend his hitting streak to 10 games. After going 0-for-17 over his final five games in April, the 25-year-old second baseman is batting .362 (25-for-69) with nine multi-hit performances in 17 contests this month.
