Shane’s Free Pick

Perez is going to make his major league debut, and he’s going to struggle in this game. I also don’t trust Trevor Williams and that is going to be the difference here. Both of these teams are going to have no issue running up the score, and this game is going to be higher scoring. Back the over. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
