Rickenbach MLB *10* Top Play UNDER 7.5 runs -115 in Kansas City vs Washington @ 8:15 ET - The Nationals have had just 8 overs in their 24 games this season while the Royals have had just 5 overs in their 24 games this season. Based on the pitching match-up for Monday, this looks like another great spot for the under. Gio Gonzalez has a 1.42 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP so far this season. Edinson Volquez is coming off of a rough start so I fully expect him to respond as he's back home for this start and the Royals right-hander has a 0.96 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in his three home starts this season. His most recent was on the road and was truly an aberration as he had pitched well in all four of his starts so far this season (including a road outing) before that ugly outing last week. Washington hasn't faced Volquez since 2014 and he held them to 2 earned runs in over 12 innings of work in his two starts against them that season. Gonzalez struggled against the Royals when he last faced them but that was in 2013 and that was the only start he has had against them since the 2011 season. A lack of familiarity is almost always an edge for the pitcher and the Nationals left-hander is throwing extremely well so far this season. The Royals are averaging just 2.7 runs per game in their last 11 games. The Nationals are hitting just .234 on the season. Both clubs bullpens have been fantastic this season. The under has cashed in 9 of 11 Royals home games this season. In 12 road games this season the Nationals have had just 3 overs! *10* UNDER in Kansas City
