Analysis

3% Kansas City Royals (-129) over Oakland — w/ Marsh & Harris — 

Kansas City has struggled in the last 2 series but you can’t say that wasn’t expected having to play the Yankees and the Dodgers in consecutive series. On the year though, they are 21-6 vs. teams < .500, so I do think this young Royals team gets back on track tonight. 

Oakland has lost 9 straight games now and send Hogan Harris to the mound to make just his 4th start of the season. Unfortunately for them, Kansas City has been solid against LHP, especially on those teams < .500. In that situation the Royals are 6-1 this season, putting up 7 runs/game on average and winning by nearly 2.5 runs per game! 

When you look at KC’s starter, Alec Marsh, they have an obvious edge there. The Royals are 9-3 in Marsh’s starts this season, including a perfect 5-0 @ NGT. In those 5 night starts, Marsh has posted a 1.59 ERA and a 0.882 WHIP!
