Total: +105/+9 Under
10* Under Tigers/Royals (1:15 ET): So we won w/ the Royals last night as they came from behind to win 5-4. They now go for a series sweep on Thursday afternoon, but unlike yday won't have the starting pitching matchup squarely in their favor. In fact, they go from big favorites on the money line to underdogs today as they face the Tigers' best pitcher Matthew Boyd. The Royals are forced to send out Glenn Sparkman, who has an 0-8 team start record his last eight outings. But, in the end, look for this to be a low-scoring game between two bad teams. Take the Under.
Boyd has done his best pitching for a horrendous team, but the numbers we ran through in yesterday's story paint a grim picture of what he's up against. The Tigers have now been outscored by 272 runs this season and have just 40 wins in 137 games played. A big reason they have the worst run differential in the sport is that they have scored fewer runs than everyone else. In fact, with the exception of one team (Miami), every other team has scored at least 86 more runs than the Tigers this season. Sparkman has never started against them, but has a 2.84 ERA in two relief appearances.
Boyd will give his team the proverbial "fighting chance" though as he comes in w/ a 1.176 WHIP in 28 starts. He's off a couple of rough outings against Minnesota, but the Twins are one of the highest scoring teams in the league. Kansas City isn't much higher than Detroit offensively as they rank 27th in runs scored. Boyd has seen each of his last five starts go Over, but that streak ends here. Sparkman has a quite respectable 1.083 WHIP at home this season. The Royals had gone Over in six straight before yday, so now it's time for an Under or two to roll in. 10* Under Tigers/Royals
