The fans at Citizens Bank Park will be treated to a game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies when they take their seats on Monday.

Ivan Nova will be the starting pitcher for the Pirates on this day. Right hander Nova is 8-5 this season with a 3.08 ERA.

The Phillies will counter Nova with Aaron Nola. Right hander Nola has a 4.13 ERA to go along with a 5-5 record this season.

Nova failed to complete six innings for the first time this season against Tampa Bay on Wednesday but still managed to earn a win while allowing two runs and seven hits in five frames. The Dominican Republic native surrendered three or fewer earned runs in 13 of his first 16 starts and got by on Wednesday without overpowering stuff while matching a season low with one strikeout. Nova started against Philadelphia on May 20 and struck out three while allowing three runs and nine hits in 7 1/3 innings to pick up a win.

Nola lost five of six starts after returning to the majors on May 21 but turned things around with back-to-back wins in his last two outings. The 24-year-old Louisiana native surrendered a total of three runs and nine hits while striking out 17 in 14 1/3 innings against St. Louis and Seattle. Nola was just as strong at Pittsburgh on May 21 but could not get enough support to reach the win column and suffered a loss despite allowing one run and four hits in seven innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Phillies listed as 120-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Pittsburgh Pirates‘ goal of reaching .500 before the All-Star break and setting themselves up to make a run at the National League Central title in the second half hit a bit of a snag of late. The Pirates will try to break out of a three-game slide when they visit the major league-worst Philadelphia Phillies on Monday for the first of four contests between the rivals.

The Pirates were 37-42 after taking two of three from the Tampa Bay Rays to begin a homestand last week but fell right back down over the weekend while being swept by the visiting San Francisco Giants. Pittsburgh mustered a total of four runs in 20 innings on Saturday and Sunday and is last in the NL Central with 345 runs on the season. The Phillies are even worse with the bats at a total of 312 runs but pushed across seven of those on Sunday in a win at the New York Mets – their third victory in the last five games. Philadelphia will try to keep the bats going on Monday in support of right-hander Aaron Nola, who opposes Pirates veteran Ivan Nova.

Philadelphia was a 7-1 winner in its last match on the road against the Mets. They won as +129 underdogs, while the total score of 8 made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Pirates were a 5-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Giants. That made winners of bettors who got San Francisco at -162 on the moneyline, while the total score (8) was good news for UNDER bettors.
