This one has been trending from 8.5 to 8.  Most books were on the 8.  There is a slight indication here that books see an UNDER outcome.

TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, NESN (Boston), ROOT Northwest (Seattle)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox RH Nathan Eovaldi (2018: 6-7, 3.81 ERA) vs. Mariners LH Yusei Kikuchi (0-0, 1.93)

Eovaldi enjoyed a superb postseason in 2018 and cashed it into a four-year, $68 million contract, prompting expectations to rise accordingly. "I personally don't feel a lot of pressure," Eovaldi told reporters. "I've been pitching a long time. It's just trying to keep everything simple and go out there and compete." Eovaldi is just 44-53 with one season with a double-digit victory total since reaching the majors in 2011, with that being when he went 14-3 in 2015 for the New York Yankees.

Kikuchi gave up two runs (one earned) and four hits over 4 2/3 innings against the Athletics in his major-league debut in Tokyo on March 21. The 27-year-old was a three-time All-Star for the Seibu Lions in Japan before jumping to the Mariners on a three-year, $43 million deal, with the club holding a four-year, $66 million option it can activate after the 2021 campaign. Kikuchi went 14-4 with 153 strikeouts in 163 2/3 innings in his final season in Japan.

While there have only been four meetings out of ten that stayed UNDER the current total, those four were well UNDER, three that featured just four runs.

It’s interesting to note that the UNDER is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings.

While it's too early to make an official pick in the MLB, the UNDER gets a 55% chance here when we combine past head-to-head total trends and the total odds movement.

College Basketball Betting – Iowa State Cyclones at Kansas Jayhawks

Following their thorough pounding of Oklahoma on Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks remain a game behind No. 1 ranked Baylor in the Big 12 standings. And with a game against the Bears coming up, KU is in a prime spot for a letdown for Monday night’s contest against the 11-14 Iowa State Cyclones. Kansas easily won the first meeting between the teams by 26 points and is currently on a 10-game winning streak. ISU won the last time out for its second victory in three games following a four-game losing skid. The series is split evenly over the last 14 encounters, but Kansas appears to have a big advantage this season.

Monday night’s ACC clash between Florida State and Duke features a high level of importance on both a conference and national stage. As two of the conference’s best teams, both the Seminoles and Blue Devils have the opportunity to break their current conference tie and move the winning team into sole possession of second place in the ACC. As their only scheduled head-to-head game this season, this will serve as a solid barometer heading into the final weeks of the regular season. On paper, these two teams are evenly matched and feature such a deep collection of talent that a down-to-the-wire game seems all but imminent.
