Shane’s Free Pick
This total is too high. Gibson is going to have a strong start and he’s going to lockdown again here. Crawford was decent in his last start and he’s going to lockdown again here. Both offenses are going to really struggle to get the offense going here against the starting pitching and that will be the difference as this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here.
