10* OVER Mets/Pirates (NL NON-DIV TOM)

We're writing this pick on Sunday afternoon while these two teams are still playing, and this Monday contest will be the finale of the four-game set. Regardless of what transpires in the game on Sunday, we love the way this one sets up to be a higher-scoring affair than what the oddsmakers are trying to lead us to believe. We dont' have a ton of faith in the Mets' Christian Scott (0-2, 4.32 ERA), who returned to the big leagues in his last outing out of neccessity, conceding four runs over five innings to the Nationals. Now on the road vs. this hard-hitting Pirates side, we're anticipating a meltdown and a quick exit. Mitch Keller (9-5, 3.48 ERA) counters for the home side and while his numbers have obviously been solid, the overall situation here in our opinion sees this total eclipsing the posted number sooner, rather than later. Look for these hungry sides to go "over" the total as the game comes down the stretch!
