Cleveland at Kansas City
Saturday 09/18 07:10 PM Eastern
2 units on Kansas City +1.5 runs -150 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
2 units on Game Total UNDER 9 +100 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: loss
The Indians don't win much on the road. When they have managed to win one on the road and have to come back again the next night, they are just 8-19. Asking them to cover a -1.5 runline on the road makes that situation pretty undesireable. The Royals have done a very good job at home as they are 13-10 in their last 23 here and 16-7 if facing the +1.5 runline. The Tribe is just 10-25 in Masterson's last 35 starts and on the road with a total from 9-10.5 they are a brutal 14-37. Asking them to win isn't pretty, but asking them to win by 2 is ugly. The Tribe also 41-19-3 to the UNDER following a win and 38-18-2 overall to the UNDER in their last 58. The Royals are playing better at home and can, at the very least, stay close here to cash the runline. I like both Kansas City on the runline, as well as the UNDER in this one.
