Shane’s Free Pick
This total is too high. Ragans sits with an ERA of 3.31 and the Tigers bats are going to be ice cold here. Sawyer Gipson-Long has also been good this season and he’s going to lockdown here. Neither the Tigers and Royals will score more than three runs and this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here.
