3 units on Kansas City -105 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

The A’s are were on a 2-15 run when they were swept by the BoSox this weekend. Any team playing that bad is bound to make anyone look good. They also put the broom on Seattle - another team playing about as bad as it gets. Those two series sandwich a 1-8 run and now the Sox turn to the road where they have not fared well all season. Clay Bucholz looked like he was going to make a huge impact for the Sox after pitching a no-hitter last September and baffling AL hitters in his four starts. This season has been completely lost. He started poorly and has not recovered, and it has to be in his head now. He is pitching to a nearly six ERA - something he has never faced in his life. The Royals send Gil Meche to the mound who is earning the big salary the Royals spent especially lately, posting a 1.33 ERA in his last three. We'll back the Royals at home in this one.
