Milwaukee Brewers vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

The Milwaukee Brewers aren't stringing together runs this week, and Joe Ross hasn't been great this season if you take away his last start. The Kansas City Royals continue to surprise, and they should like their chances with Brady Singer on the mound. Singer has the 12th best ERA in baseball and a top-15 WHIP at 0.97. The Royals have a clear starting pitching edge, and they're at home with the quick turnaround. Give me the Royals and the surprisingly cheap price.
