3 units on Kansas City +182 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Twins are falling apart at the worst time down the stretch. They are just 3-7 over their last 10 and falling fast. They have also only won four of their last 15. Nick Blackburn has pitched well most of the season, but the Twins have now lost his last five starts. The Royals expected big things out of Brian Bannister, but he has disappointed, until recently where he has pitched well. Bannister owns a 3.21 ERA in his last three starts and is more than capable of pitching effectively against a cold Twins team. After a long losing skid, the Royals have now won four of six, and I like them against a cold Twins team.
