The Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers will meet for game three of their series from Kansas City. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Royals are now tied for third place in their division and might actually be having a decent season if it wasn’t for such a miserable beginning. On Tuesday as a team they scored 6 runs on 11 hits en route to a comfortable win. Tonight they will start Everett Teaford who will be making his first start since July as he has been working out of the bullpen lately. Teaford is pitching to a 4.30 ERA and 52 innings of work.
The Rangers have the best record in the American League but dropped their contest to the Royals on Tuesday. Matt Harrison had a rare rough outing letting up five runs in just four innings of work. Tonight the Rangers will start Ryan Dempster who has won his last three starts. Since being traded to Texas Dempster has allowed 38 hits in 37 innings of work.
Kansas City is 9-1 in their last 10 games as a home underdog, 5-1 in their last six home games against a team with a winning record, and 5-2 in Teaford’s last seven starts. Texas is 5-2 in their last seven road games, 12-5 in their last 17 games overall, and 5-1 in Dempster’s last six starts. Texas is 17-8 in the last 25 meetings of these two.
Kansas City has really quietly played very well lately as we mentioned before. With such a good value here and being that Dempster is definitely hittable we will take a shot with Kansas City as a home moneyline dog atbest sportsbooks online.
