Total: 10.00 | -113.00 Over
Philadelphia won the first game of this series by a score of 5-1, and then Toronto won the second yesterday by a score of 4-0.
While the first two games of this series have fallen UNDER the number, we're expecting some fireworks in the finale.
The visitors go with Chase Anderson, who is 2-3 with a 5.23 ERA. He most recently allowed two runs over five innings in a win over the Nationals. He's been hit or miss, as evidenced by his pedestrian 26:15 K:BB over 31 innings of work.
The home side counters with Robbie Ray, who is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA, and who most recently allowed three runs off five hits with ten K's over six innings in a win over the Braves.
It's difficult to say too many negative things about Ray, as he's been very solid. I'll point out though that the Phillies have seen the total go OVER in eight of their last 11 interleague contests after getting shutout in their previous outing.
Look for this total to eclipse the number late. The play is the OVER.
Good luck, NP
