Baltimore is 13-40 in their last 53 Thursday games and 23-68 in their last 91 road games. The over is 7-1-1 in Baltimore’s last 9 games. Kansas City is 2-8 in their last 10 home games and 1-6 in their last 7 game one’s of a series. The under is 9-1-1 in Kansas City’s last 11 Thursday games. The over is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Kansas City.

I am expecting plenty of runs in this game with the pitching matchup that is lined up. Bubic has an ERA of 9.33 and has allowed 12 earned runs in his last 12.1 innings as a starter. For the Orioles, Lyles has allowed at least three runs in four of his last five starts. I am taking the over here.
