The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 road games, 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games and 7-1 in their last 8 overall. The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games, 2-6 in their last 8 games following an off day and 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win. The under is 5-2 in Royals last 7 road games. The under is 3-1-1 in Brewers last 5 overall. The Royals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

Danny Duffy has allowed six runs and 11 hits in his last 11.2 innings while Adrian Houser has allowed 12 earned runs and 17 hits in his last 13.2 innings. I'm not running to the window to back either of these pitchers, but it's the Royals that are playing the better baseball right now and have head and shoulders the more consistent offense. The Brewers are hard to back in the favorite role based on their inability to score runs. Give me the Royals and the plus money.
