I get why the Brewers would be favored here as the more desperate team fighting for playoff positioning. However, Kansas City’s caught fire lately, winning 7 of their last 8 and you’d have to think that finishing near .500 at the end of the season would be a massive confidence boost going into next season considering the low expectations many (including myself) had for Kansas City this season. I also trust Danny Duffy as a starter more than I do Adrian Houser, as Houser’s been terrible for much of the year, giving up at least four runs in six of his nine starts this season, including a season high 7 runs last time out. Granted, five of those were unearned runs, but the scoreboard doesn’t discriminate, runs are runs and the Brewers haven’t been winning with Houser on the mound. I’ll take Kansas City and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
