3 units on Oakland -170 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Royals beat up on Baltimore in a three game sweep, giving a false sense that this team is playing better baseball. The fact is that they can hold their own vs. the losing teams, but taking on a team at or better than .500 has been a different story where they are a dismal 3-15 in their last 18. They have faced the A's four times on the season losing all four by a combined score of 26-12. Overall the last nine times they have faced the A's, they are just 1-8. The Royals are also just 91-194 facing an opponent that allowed 2 runs or less in their last game. Oakland has taken care of losing teams at home where they are now 21-7 in their last 28. I like Oakland in this one.
