Detroit is 0-5 in Skubal’s last 5 Friday starts and the under is 6-0 in Skubal’s last 6 starts during game 2 of a series. Kansas City is 6-1 in their last 7 Friday games. Detroit is 1-5 and the under is 20-7-1 in these two teams last handful of head to head meetings.

Tarik Skubal had a very poor showing in his first start after a promising spring training, Brad Keller looked very sharp in his first outing. The Tigers have not pitched well as a team this season, but neither have the Royals. I like the over here with two pitching staffs that are not good early on this season.
