4 units on Kansas City -201 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
The Royals are currently playing well, and have the good feeling of a team out of any playoff contention as they have won six straight, which makes it fun to go to the ballpark. The same can't be said for Seattle which has now lost seven straight in a row and nine straight on the road. Zack Grienke has pitched to a 2.21 ERA over his last six starts, and has not allowed more than three runs in any of those six outings. Ryan Feieraband has not pitched well at all, as he brings a 5.79 ERA into this one with an even-worse 9.88 road ERA. The Royals may be in last place in the AL Central, but they have more wins against left-handed pitching than any other team at 32-22. I like Royals for the sweep.
