Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 5
Under 8 (-105) @ pinnacle

This is a 10* TOP SUNDAY TOTAL on the UNDER Indians/White Sox.

The first two games of this three-game series have flown OVER the number, but we look for a more of a "duel" here on Sunday finally.

Cleveland has in fact seen the total go OVER the number in six straight. Chicago has seen it go OVER in three straight.

Both of these starting pitchers today have gotten out to slow starts to the season, but neither will be lacking motivation today.

Zach Plesac is 1-3 with a 5.81 ERA for the Tribe. Most recently he gave up three runs while striking out four over seven innings vs. the Twins on Monday, earning a no-decision. Plesac continues to improve with each outing, and his sharp 18:3 K:BB over 26.1 frames shows that he's on the cusp of correcting his numbers.

Lucas Giolito is 1-2 with a 5.68 ERA for the White Sox. Giolito has lost two in a row, but a game in friendly confines is just what the doctor ordered to get back on track, as he posted a respectable 3.85 ERA there last year.

Look for these two underachieving, but ultra-hungry starters to be the main focus in tomorrow's summaries.

The play is the UNDER.

Good luck, NP

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
