Focus Series

Reds vs. Nationals (Nationals) Bet Here

Rangers vs. Blue Jays (OVER) Bet Here

Red Sox vs. Indians (Indians) Bet Here

The line and total movements didn't instill much confidence with us despite the trend edge.

Both side edges were close calls with a single run victory, but the Rangers-Blue Jays game truly went OVER. 

Toronto by itself scored 19 runs, eight of those in the 4th inning. This was their  biggest inning since an eight-run frame against Seattle on Sept. 20, 2016.

Prior to this game, eight of the last ten meetings between the Rangers and Blue Jays had gone OVER 9.5 (all but one going OVER 10, and this one went way over it).
