Shane’s Free Pick

The first game of this game was higher scoring, but it’s going to be different here. Valdez was lights out in his first start and the Tigers are going to struggle to even get a run here. Matt Manning also was decent last year, and he’s going to step up here. Look for a 3-1 or 4-1 type of game and the under will cash.
