BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Toronto's last 6 games.

Toronto are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.

Tampa Bay are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Tampa Bay's last 11 games against Toronto.

Prediction

This is going to be a pitching duel while both pitchers have been great this season so where definitely going to see a low scoring game. The under has cashed in 8 of the last 11 head to head games so I'm going with the under. 

PICK: Under 6.5 (-110)
