Kansas City is 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 3-9 in their last 12 road games. The under is 3-1-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 road games. Texas is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 4-10 in their last 14 home games. The under is 4-0 in Texas’ last 4 games. Kansas City is 7-26 in these two teams last 33 head to head meetings.

This is another good pitching matchup that we have on our hands on Tuesday night between two teams that have not started the season playing very well. Both pitchers have losing records while having ERA’s below 2.26, meaning they don’t get much run support. Texas has played better in recent games and has the home field advantage here. I like Texas at home in this matchup behind a much improved Martin Perez.
