The Kansas City Royals and the Milwaukee Brewers will face off tonight in game two of their series. All odds for all games can be found by visiting Just Bet sportsbook.
The Royals came into last night as huge underdogs against the Brewers, but managed to scratch out a victory. The Royals only scored two runs on nine hits, but that was enough for a pitching staff that was solid throughout the game. The Royals will look to build on the momentum of last night as they give the ball to Luke Hochevar who is coming off of four losses in his last four decisions. The righty has struggled all season pitching to a 6.57 ERA in 63 innings of work. The Royals hope that the youngster can start to get back on track tonight and they can secure a series win.
The Brewers came up to short yesterday as they lost 2 -1. Zack Greinke was solid on the mound allowing just one run over seven innings of work. On Wednesday, the Brewers will start veteran Randy Wolf who has struggled for the past month. The lefty, who has had a solid career may be running out of gas as he is pitching to a 5.45 ERA and has allowed 82 hits in 67 innings of work this season.
Kansas City is 4-1 in their last five games against a left handed starter, 1-4 in their last five games overall, and 1-4 in Hochevar’s last five starts. Milwaukee is 4-1 in their last five road games, 0-4 in their last four interleague games as an underdog, and 1-4 in Wolf’s last five starts.
The pitching matchup definitely leaves something to be desired in this game. Which is why we like the over for total runs scored in this matchup even though it is a high number at best sports books.
