The Kansas City Royals are 23-41 this season and have won three games in a row. Kansas City has won the first two games of this series by scores of 5-1 and 2-0. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 4.97 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a .265 opponent batting average this season. The Royals offense has scored 243 runs with a .239 batting average and a .302 on base percentage. Salvador Perez is batting .209 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI’s for the Royals this season. The projected starter for Kansas City is Brady Singer, who is 3-1 with a 4.24 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 40.1 innings pitched this season.
The Oakland Athletics are 22-45 this season and have lost five of their last six games. Prior to losing the first two games of this series, Oakland lost two out of three games against Boston. The Oakland pitching staff has a 4.38 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .256 opponent batting average.

Kansas City is 18-36 in their last 54 games and 3-6 in their last 9 road games. The under is 5-1 in Kansas City’s last 6 road games. Oakland is 14-39 in their last 53 games and 1-6 in their last 7 Sunday games. The under is 11-4-2 in Oakland’s last 17 Sunday games. The under is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Oakland.
This total seems very low to me and jumps out at me as a must play. Both of these pitchers have had their struggles this season and even though neither team is great offense, they should be able to fly past the 7.5 total. Brady Singer has allowed 12 runs in his last 15 innings, while Jared Koenig has allowed 10 runs in his last 8 innings of work. I like the over here.
