Over/Under Total Pick:
White Sox’ starter Felipe Paulino looked good in his first start of the season but keep in mind that was his first start in the majors since 2012. The Rockies exploded for 24 runs versus the Diamondbacks and should get their share here. Colorado starter Lyles hasn’t been sharp in his last 3 dating back to last season. Take the OVER 10.
