These teams combined for 17 runs in yesterday’s game and the total will go over in this one and I think mainly because Verlander will struggle again.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Velrander will not have a good outing tonight and while Skoglund will not have the best MLB debut he will not get lit up. The KC lineup will be the difference maker in this game, as they will get it done at the dish and the Royals will get the win.
