NY Yankees are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Kansas City.

Kansas City are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Kansas City's last 11 games against NY Yankees.

Prediction

The Bombers are on fire right now and currently on a 6 game winning streak, they have also won 4 of their last 5 games vs Royals. Kansas City is sending Kris Bubic who had a terrible game against the Mariners allowing 5 runs. The Yankees shouldn't have problems to pound the ball against Bubic. Take the Yankees.
