The total in this one is set at 8.0 and while we have a lot of good bats, I still have it staying under though that is just a lean. My stronger pick is on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App. As always my Premium Picks are available for individual purchase at Picks and Parlays.
