3 units on Game Total UNDER 7 -120 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Zack Greinke created some unrealistic expectations with the way he started last season. He has not duplicated that, nor will you find many pitchers that do. He remains an effective starter with plus stuff, and that has led to nine of his last 12 starts producing 7 total runs or less. Gio Gonzalez is on a tear as he has allowed a total of 8 runs over his last seven starts, leading to a 1.66 ERA. He has allowed 1 run in seven innings vs. the Royals this season. Greinke has a career 2.94 ERA vs. Oakland in 49 innings of work. The A's are 9-1-1 in Gonzalez' last 11 road starts with a total posted at 7-8.5. The Royals, in Greinke's last 30 starts vs. the AL West have gone over the total in just eight of the last 30 games. These teams have played four straight UNDERs and I like this one to follow suit, so the UNDER gets the call.
