Cleveland at Kansas City

3 units on Kansas City -120 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

Kansas City busted up their 12-game losing streak with a win yesterday. Can they get two in a row for the first time since mid-May? Yes! Let's not forget that Cleveland has had their own major struggles of late. They have lost 11 of their last 14 and send Paul Byrd to the mound. On the season he has a 6.93 road ERA. Opposing him is Brian Bannister who has posted a 2.68 ERA in five home games. Cleveland manages just 3.5 runs per game on the road on .229 hitting so don't expect Byrd to get a lot of run support. The Tribe is just 11-17 this season vs. losing teams. Yes, KC is very weak offensively but note that Byrd is just 1-7 the past three seasons on the road vs. low-scoring teams (those scoring under 4.3 runs per game). Meanwhile Bannister is 9-2 the past two seasons in day games. We like the Royals to make it two in a row.
