Eight of the last ten games between these two teams have resulted in eight or fewer runs.  The problem here is that the total is falling right on 8.

The total has come down a half run from 8.5.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Yankees RH Jonathan Loaisiga (0-0, 2.25 ERA) vs. Astros RH Gerrit Cole (0-2, 3.00)

Loaisiga yielded only one hit over four frames in a spot start Wednesday but ran into trouble by walking the bases loaded and allowing his only run in his final inning of work, leading to a no-decision against Detroit. The 24-year-old Nicaraguan made nine appearances in 2018, going 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his four starts. Considered the organization's top pitching prospect after going 15-4 with a 2.63 ERA in 43 minor-league turns, Loaisiga is set to face Houston for the first time in his career.

Cole opened the season by striking out 19 in consecutive quality starts, but he was doomed by a lack of run support again Wednesday after permitting three runs in six frames during a 4-0 loss at Texas. The two-time All-Star was charged with four runs over six innings in his first outing, but only one was earned in a 10-strikeout performance in Tampa Bay.

Half of the last ten games Houston has played overall have resulted in two or fewer runs scored.  Against Baltimore they managed to score six or more runs in each of those this past weekend.

The UNDER is 10-2 in the Astros last twelve games.

Half of the last ten games New York has played in overall have resulted in three or fewer runs scored. The Yankees were able to score a lot more runs against the A's over the weekend.

The OVER is 10-2 in the Yankees last twelve road games.

We will be on the UNDER 8 for this one.

College Basketball Betting – Iowa State Cyclones at Kansas Jayhawks

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.
