Nikon D850 Exposure Issues

I am a new owner of a Nikon D850 body.  I use it with my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 and Nikon 200-400 f/4 to shoot horse events such as Pleasure Events, barrel racing and pole bending.   No matter what MODE I use, P, M, A or S, the images always come out 1-2 stops darker than what the back screen shows.     Yet when I am looking thru the eye piece, the metering is right on the center marker and I'm thinking, "The D850 has this"..

I have now uploaded the newest Firmware version, 1.20 and 2.018.    I checked to make sure I do not have BRACKETING turned on.    For me to get a somewhat good image, I need to be either at +0.7 or +1.0 in EV.

I use Matrix Metering with 20mm Center Weighted area.      Can anyone shed light on this.     I solely use JPG and do not use NEF unless I am doing portraits.

I take 1,500-2800 shots a day at events.  So editing is as streamline as it can get.

I had a D800 which really never gave me this issue.    Except for the huge jump in ISO which is great, I am starting to feel like I should get my D800 out again.   Please tell me I'm just adjusting something incorrectly..
