10 PT Pick = Nola OVER 6.1 Innings Pitched
Philadelphia Phillies Pen needs the help. Been used a bunch coming out of the All-Star Break and Nola needs to give them close to 7 strong innings.
9 PT Pick = Bryce Harper UNDER 0.5 EXTRA BASE HITS
Every once in a while you just have to play a hunch… gut feeling that Harper does not get it done today.
8 PT Pick = Nola OVER 7.5 K’s
43 batters in 35 2/3 frames… that is about 1.2 batter per inning. If we are banking that he goes 7 then 7 X 1.2 = 8.4 batters.
