Last pick: Blue Jays vs. Reds under 9.5 runs = WIN (3-2 final score)       Record: 3-2

Pirates (Maholm) vs. Indians (Carrasco) UNDER 8 RUNS

Paul Maholm has a solid 3.12 ERA on the season and has been on fire lately. He has pitched 13 scoreless innings in his last two starts against the Mets and Diamondbacks. In fact in 3 out of his last 4 starts, he has allowed no runs. He has allowed 3 runs or less in 8 out of his last 10 starts and has been fairly consistent this season. In 12 innings pitched against the Indians, he has a solid 3.75 ERA. The Pirates have a very good bullpen, which should be able to back up Maholm after he leaves. Carlos Carrasco has an ERA slightly over 4 for the season, but he too has been hot lately. He has gone 15.1 innings pitching scoreless baseball against the Twins and Yankees. He has a 2.11 ERA in his last 3 starts. The Indians have a good bullpen as well, if needed. I like this play because both pitchers have not allowed a run in their last two starts and both teams have good bullpens. Good pitching beats good hitting in this game. BET UNDER 8
