I’m sticking with the over here. I just don’t trust the starting pitching matchup on either side, as I’ve watched both of these guys get lit up over the course of their careers and really do nothing to convince me that that’s all of a sudden going to change. Both teams have some pop in the lineup and I’m thinking we see the offenses come to play here. Give me the over.
