- SCOTT Rickenbach MLB Game #913 Monday
10* Top Play OVER the total in Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros @ 7:05 ET - The Blue Jays Marco Estrada and the Astros Dallas Keuchel matched up on June 27th and that game totaled 13 runs. I wouldn't be surprised to see a similar end result tonight. Houston's Keuchel has seen the over go 4-1 in his 5 starts versus the Jays in his career. Toronto's Estrada enters this start off of a solid outing at Baltimore but this certainly has been the exception rather than the norm lately for the Blue Jays right-hander. He entered that start having been crushed to the tune of a 12.60 ERA over his 4 prior starts. The Astros game yesterday ended up being a push to the total so they are still on a 3-0 run to the over entering this match-up. Also, in road games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs, Houston is on a long-term 47-23 run to the over. As a road favorite of -175 or more, the Astros are on a 21-10 run to the over. As a home underdog of +175 or more, the Blue Jays are 20-8 to the over! Only 1 of Keuchel's last 5 road starts have remained under the total. The Jays lost 5-2 yesterday but had previously won 6 of their last 8 games and averaged scoring 5 runs per game. The point being that the Jays are still playing hard to close out the season while the Astros are working hard to try and lock up the AL West title. Houston has won 6 of their last 8 games and averaged scoring 6 runs per game in the process. 10* OVER the total in Toronto

7 2 team teaser steelers - over
Monday's Selection ...
For Monday, Raise The Bar 1500♦ is the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At 7:15 am eastern, the Steelers are +1 point in Vegas and offshore.
What has gotten into the Bucs?!!?! What has gotten into the Steelers!?!?!
Tampa Bay has won and covered in BOTH of their games this season, and they have done so over a pair of NFC teams that were playoff clubs last year - the Bucs upsetting New Orleans, 48-40 on Week One as the +10 point dog, then following in their home opener with a 27-20 home dog win over the Super Bowl champion Eagles!
The big story is back-up QB - Ryan Fitzpatrick who has thrown for over 800 yards, and 8 TD passes, as he sure looks like he has a strong case for remaining the starter once Jameis Winston's suspension is completed after tonight's contest.
Meanwhile, the Steelers have started this year with internal turmoil - see Le'Veon Bell's holdout, see Antonio Brown's twitter whines - as Mike Tomlin's team is 0-1-1 which includes a rather ugly lack of defense last weekend at home versus Kansas City where they were torched for over 400 yards and 6 TD passes by Patrick Mahomes.
The question is, do these trends continue????
I say NO!
The Steelers have won each of their last 6 Monday night games, and they have covered in 4 of those 6 wins. The Bucs have covered 5 of their last 7 home underdog tries under Dirk Koetter, and they do have a red-hot QB on their side, but my money tonight is on the veteran, prideful Steelers to figure out a way to cool off Fitzpatrick and the Bucs.
In this near pick, I will ride with Pittsburgh.
#6 IN A ROW
NFL Over the total
ASA NFL MONDAY - OPINION ONLY on Pittsburgh +2 over Tampa Bay
Golden Knights vs. Sharks Prediction The Las Vegas Golden Knights are on a back-to-back with travel at the San Jose Sharks tonight and are the underdogs. Can Las Vegas stay hot and send San Jose to a third consecutive defeat?
Nuggets vs. Celtics Prediction The Denver Nuggets have won their last three games going into tonight's showdown at the Boston Celtics. Can Boston protect its home court as the favorites in this matchup?
Jazz vs. Wizards Prediction The Utah Jazz are only a .500 team on the road this season and face a Washington Wizards team tonight that is 22-13 straight up on their home court. Can Utah prevail and cover the spread as the favorites in D.C.?
Pistons vs. Cavaliers Prediction The Detroit Pistons have been red-hot at home, but dropped their last two on the road last week. Will Detroit find its footing away from home tonight in a back-to-back situation at the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Pacers vs. Trail Blazers Prediction The Pacers and Trail Blazers are each fighting for homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs in their respective conferences and will meet tonight in Portland at 10:30 p.m. ET. Given how well the Blazers have played at the Moda Center, are they a good bet to cover tonight?
Bulls vs. Suns Prediction The Phoenix Suns own a dreadful 17-54 record, but they’ve also won six of their last 10 games. Listed as a small home favorite tonight, will they beat the struggling Bulls and also cash for bettors in the process? Tip-off for tonight’s game is set for 10:00 p.m. ET.
Pelicans vs. Mavericks Prediction A pair of struggling teams will meet Monday night in Dallas where the Mavericks will host the Pelicans at 8:30 p.m. ET. Given how both teams have played poorly over their previous 10 games, is New Orleans a live dog catching 4.5 points on the road?
