Kansas City at Chicago
Sunday 05/31 02:20 PM Eastern
2 units on Game Total UNDER 6.5 -122 (risk 2 to return 3.64) RESULT: WIN
The Kansas City Royals bring that great defense and bullpen into Wrigley Field on a 7-3-1 run UNDER the total. They are also 6-1-1 UNDER against a team with a winning record. Kansas City faces Cubs lefty Tsuyoshi Wada (0-0, 2.70), and the Royals are 6-1-2 UNDER the total against a left-handed starter. The 34-year-old has piled up 15 strikeouts in 10 innings while allowing eight hits and three walks. Wada (6-1 UNDER the total run at home) hasn't received much run support as the Cubs have scored a total of four runs in the two games he has started. Chicago is 21st in baseball in runs scored and 19th in slugging. The Cubbies are 17-5-2 UNDER the total at home vs. a right-handed starter as well as on an 8-2-1 run UNDER the total in interleague games at Wrigley Field. This shapes up as a defensive battle, and note that the Cubs are 18-6-3 UNDER the total in interleague home games vs. a right-handed starter. Play the Royals/Cubs UNDER the total for my MLB Total of the Month.
