Kansas City is 3-8 in their last 11 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games against a left-handed starting pitcher. The over is 4-2 in Kansas City’s last 6 games. Baltimore is 18-40 in their last 58 Monday games and 25-60 in their last 85 games. The under is 5-0 in Baltimore’s last 5 Monday games. Kansas City is 5-14 in these two teams last 19 head to head meetings in Baltimore.

These two teams come into this game trending in different directions. The Royals have struggled lately, while the Orioles have had recent success. Neither pitcher is great in this matchup, but Wells has had a couple of decent starts this season. I like the over here as I see this score being closer to 10 runs total.
