Kansas City +275 over Houston
2:10 PM EST. It’s a damn baseball game for god’s sake but this game is priced like it’s the Astronauts vs Omaha. Kansas City could easily be 3-0 in this four game set after losing the opener 7-6, the middle game 9-7 and winning last night, 7-4. The Royals are absolutely smashing the ball, as they have gone deep eight times thus far in the three games.
Justin Verlander is a fly-ball pitcher with a swing and miss rate of 11.9%. Yeah, he’s killing it with a 2.03 ERA but his xERA is 3.58 so luck has played a significant role in his results. Let’s not forget that when he took the mound for the first time this year, he was 18 months removed from Tommy John surgery. A quick look at his skills show the upside that's possible, but concerns over volume and post-injury skills at his age are well-warranted. Let’s see what happens in this massive overlay.
Kansas City +290 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 5.80)
