Total: 7.50 | -105.00 Over
Both teams struggle to score runs. Both of these starting pitchers have done well to this point. Normally when you add all of these factors together, the UNDER would be the logical call, but in this case, we're expecting more of an offensive affair.
The visitors have won four in a row, but they've seen the total go UNDER in three straight. That includes in yesterday's 4-2 series opener here in the Pacific Northwest.
Aaron Civale is 5-0 with a 2.91 ERA and 33:14 K:BB over 46.1 innings of work for the Tribe. Civale though is going to have his hands full tonight vs. this hungry home side, which is trying to snap a five-game slide.
Chris Flexen is 3-1 with a 3.78 ERA for the Mariners, but he enters off a poor start vs. the Rangers, allowing four runs and ten hits over 6.1 innings.
Both Civale and Flexen are poised for regression, which is good news for these starving line-ups.
This number is low, the play is the OVER.
Good luck, NP
