Peavy hasn’t won since the 70’s, but he really hasn’t pitched that poorly with 6 quality starts over his last 8 games. He pitched last season against the Mets in New York and it was a sharp performance of 6 and 2/3 innings of 1 run ball. Degrom has been dominant in recent starts allowing just 2 runs in 20 and 1/3 innings covering 3 starts. He’s an unimpressive 2-3 at home, but that’s because of run support as he has a brilliant 1.83 ERA. We get under favoring umpire O’Nora and that’s where my money is going to go. Take the Under 7 -120
