A.J. Burnett has shown signs of pitching better, and as bad as things have gone for him this season, he certainly has been above average at the Stadium where he has pitched to a 3.59 ERA. he should have a good game vs. the Royals as he has worked 27.2 innings in his last four starts against them, pitching to a 1.95 ERA. The Yankees often struggle vs. pitchers they haven't seen much of, and they haven't seen Bannister since 2008. Bannister has pitched to a 5-0 mark to the UNDER in his last five vs. the AL East, and the Royals are 11-3 to the UNDER vs. a pitcher with a WHIP of greater than 1.30 in their last 14. Just one of the last 12 pitched by Burnett has topped the total with a moneyline of -201 or greater. I'll go UNDER in this one.
