Total: 11.00 | -135.00 Under
The first thing you think about when you look at these two teams are a couple of hard-hitting line-ups which routinely play to the OVER.
While Garrett Richards has been "on again, off again" with his performance, the Jays Robbie Ray enters this one on fire and I believe he'll be the main reason why this total stays UNDER the posted number.
Richards is 5-5 with a 4.91 ERA and he enters off a win over the Phillies in his final outing before the break, allowing three runs and striking out four over five innings.
His spot in the rotation is safe. Note that Richards is just 2-3 with a 6.60 ERA at home, and 3-2 with a 3.94 ERA on the road.
Ray is 8-4 with a 2.93 ERA and he just went seven scoreless against the Rangers in his first start since the break.
Since June 1st Ray owns a 2.11 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP and a 78:14 K:BB over 55.1 innings of work.
This can still be a high-scoring contest and fall UNDER this sky-high number. Expect that to be the case here.
The play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
