I’m not in love with this game but I’ll side with the over here. I was on the Nationals when it was initially listed as Jesse Scholtens going, but with the switch to Michael Kopech, I think the over is just the better play as I think both offenses scratch a fair number of runs off of the opposing starter and once the bullpens get involved, I think we’re headed for an over here. Give me the over.
