Find out how far apart these teams actually are in this scenario but how the market has not reacted to this yet here at the HRW.
Twins Royals : 9-1 KC
KC (62-60) has had a concentrated effort in their last ten games to go 9-1 and salvage their season. Now with forty games left, they are within earshot of the two wild card slots. Here we have two starters that were on the opposite ends of production. Santiago of the Twins was mired in that Angels dugout that has been festering for over a year. Even though his last start was not great for the Twins, he should have a little more interest and form than his 1.67 WHIP and over 9 ERA for his last three games. He should not shut KC down but might be a tad bit more stubborn here than when he was with LAA.
Even though he has not won at home since very late June, Ian Kennedy is in a great state of mind for this one. Recent momentum has his ERA under one for his last three games. WHIP of 1.00 has his seven walks already factored into it. Teams are not hitting the ball hard against him. He has shown the mental fortitude to work out of almost every jam those silly walks might have gotten him into. Very strong spot for the Royals tonight.
ML opener in the -140 range has not budged in this game on the Royals. So many times that when KC wins in this situation that they will do so big. RL of -1 1/2 gets you +140 on your bet. Go with the Royals Runline for your MLB Lock for 8/20. Good fortune and we will see you Sunday here at the HRW.
