Total: 9.50 | -108.00 Under
Both teams have been playing to several higher-scoring games of late, but I expect a much tigher, and ultimately lower-scoring contest here in the opener of this series.
Zach Wheeler (11-6, 3.70 ERA) gets the call for the visitors, and he's been at his best on the road this year, going 7-4 with a 3.27 ERA away from friendly confines.
He'll be opposed by Kyle Wright (0-2, 7.48 ERA) who has clearly seen better days. The good news? Wright has only one way to go with his performance. Also, he's only pitched a total of 21.2 innings this season, and he still owns a decent 23:12 K:BB. I think Wright settles down here finally and matches Wheeler inning for inning.
This game will have a playoff like atmosphere about it, and I believe it'll be the men on the mound that take center stage.
This number is high, the play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
