I’m sticking with the over here. I was initially on the under, but a lot of times, in these short turnaround situations, we don’t necessarily see the big adjustments that are normally made to suggest a different result in the second meeting. I don’t know if we see another beatdown, but I think another goalfest is in store here after a decent number of goals on Monday. Give me the over.
