Analysis

3% First Five Kansas City w/ Wacha +1/2 run -135 San Diego w/ Cease

KC has lost 4 of 5 as they dropped the series finale vs TB as a dog and then lost 3 of 4 at Minnesota with two losses also as a dog. That drops the Royals to 14-15 on the road but at home at are the MLB’s #1 most profitable team going 21-6 since April 4th including 7-1 in game #1 of a series. In fact KC is 11-1 in game #1 of a series as pk/favorite. Royals batting .275 at home which leads the majors. Cease has better YTD numbers than Wacha but current form says differently. Wacha with 4 straight quality starts throwing 6, 6, 7 and 6 innings while allowing 3 runs or less (7 total) in all 4 starts. In Cease’s first 8 starts he held 7 of those foes to two runs or less but in his last three starts he has tossed 15 1/3 innings allowing 22 hits and 12 runs while allowing 4 home runs.
