Boston is 9-2 in their last 11 games against the AL Central and 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games. The under is 4-0 in Boston’s last 4 games. Kansas City is 5-2 in their last 7 game one’s of a series and 2-7 in their last 9 games. The under is 5-0 in Kansas City’s last 5 home games. Boston is 16-5 in these two teams last 21 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have been disappointing this season, but Kansas City has been one of the worst teams in all of baseball. Kansas City is starting Kris Bubic, who has a 5.45 ERA and has allowed five runs in his last 20 innings pitched. For Boston, Nick Pivetta has allowed 12 runs over his last 15 innings pitched. Neither of these pitchers have had good seasons, but Bubic has looked much improved in his last few outings. I do think the offenses will get going here and I am taking the over.
