Seattle at Kansas City

3 units on Kansas City -119 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Seattle is just that bad. We aren't even at the All-Star break and they are already 19 games out of first in their division, they own the worst record in the AL, and they are 17-31 away from home this season. They start Carlos Silva who is just 4-11 on the season (2-6 on the road). He's als 2-12 as an underdog of +100 to +125 the past two seasons. The Marniners average just 3.8 runs per game vs. RHP and over their last seven games the M's are getting a paltry 2.4 per game. They can't even beat losing teams (like KC) as Seattle is just 14-30 vs. sub-.500 teams this season. Meanwhile, KC does beat the bad teams as they are 14-7 vs. teams that are outscored by their competition by 0.5+ runs per game. This is a very winnable game for KC and we'll back them.
