Royals vs Orioles Betting Prediction

The Royals bats are going to ice cold here. Burnes was lights out in his first start and he’s going to step up again here. Ragans was also good in his first start for the Royals and he’s going to have a good start here also. The Orioles and Royals are both going to really struggle to get the offense here, and that will be the difference has this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash.
