On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Athletics who sit with a 23-48 record overall and they are coming off another disappointing loss on Thursday.

The A’s haven’t given Irvin a ton of run support this season and that has led to losing his last seven starts. The Royals aren’t exactly a great time, but it’s hard to ignore that type of trend. The A’s are going to struggle to score against Greinke here, and the Royals are going to find a way to secure the victory. Back the Royals on the money line.
