Money line (ML)
Cincinnati swept the Cubs over the weekend, adding a four-game winning streak to that streak. The Reds are since June 3, 19-11.
Kansas City won 2 out of 3 of the twins over the weekend. The Royals had lost nine in a row before their win against Minnesota on Friday and are just 6:22 in their last 28 games.
With the Reds headed for an 11 game home stand and Minor having a solid history in effective bounce backs after two bad mistakes in a row, the Royals are the value game. But SKIP THE MONEY LINE and use the plus money against the run-and-a-half.
The Kansas City offensive has been a near-average unit for the past few weeks, releasing .720 OPS since June 14th. The Cincinnati attack isn’t as strong on the street (.685 OPS) or southpaw (.673 OPS) as it is at home or right-handed.
On a warm night in a high-total contest TAKE THE ROYAL -1.5 (+150).
Over under (O / U)
A forecast of 86 degrees on the first pitch and with an outward breeze and with two bullpen on the second BACK THE OVER 10 (-110) on a small to medium lean.
