Stephen Nover's MLB Monday Totals Crusher - 67% MLB Hot Streak
(MLB) Seattle vs. Tampa Bay, 08/02/2021 7:10 PM, Score: 8 - 2
Total: 8.50 | -109.00 Over
Result: Win
I like the Rays, but I don't like them when Michael Wacha pitches. I like the Mariners when Chris Flexen pitches at home. Flexen is on the road.

The combination of Flexen on the road versus Wacha helps put me on the Over.

Each team should be good for at least four runs. Seattle has scored 4 or more runs in eight of its last nine games.

The addition of power-hitting Nelson Cruz has made Tampa Bay more dangerous. The Rays are averaging 8.2 runs in their last four games.

Flexen isn't the same away from pitcher-friendly Seattle. He has a 5.92 road ERA compared to a 2.67 home ERA.

Wacha has a 4.79 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He's a below average starter with a bad history against the Mariners - 8.25 ERA and 2.33 WHIP in 12 previous innings against them.

The Over has cashed the past five times the teams have played in Tropicana Field.
