BETTING TRENDS

Kansas City are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Kansas City are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Chi White Sox.

Chi White Sox are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games at home.

Chi White Sox are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games when playing at home against Kansas City.

Prediction

The White Sox pounded the Royals 9-2 on Tuesday's game to tie the series. For this game they'll send Lance Lynn to the mound who has been up and down this season but has dominated the Royals in the last meetings. Brady Singer will start for the Royals who has been sharp in his last starts allowing only 2 runs in the last 19 innings pitched. Expect a low scoring game as both pitchers should provde quality starts. Take the under.

PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
