The Pittsburgh Pirates are members of Major League Baseball’s National League Central division, playing their home games at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Founded in October 1881, the Pirates, sometimes referred to as the “Bucs” or “Buccos,” the Pittsburgh Pirates look poised to be really competitive in the NL Central this coming season, giving you ample opportunity to bet on them and make some money from your MLB betting. The Pirates made it to the playoffs in both 2014 and 2015 after enduring 20 consecutive losing seasons between 1993 and 2012.
Thankfully for fans of the Pirates, the team’s fortunes have turned around and sportsbooks have installed them as seventh favorites for the National League (approx. +750) before a ball’s been pitched.
They are big outsiders to win the 2016 World Series (+1600), something they have not achieved since 1979. Will this be the Pirates’ year?
