Kansas City Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays
MLB Over-Under Prediction: Under 7.5 runs (May 11th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach Thursday 1st of 2 Free Picks goes Early: UNDER 7.5 runs in Tampa Bay vs Kansas City @ 1:10 ET – The Royals resumed their struggles at the plate yesterday and have now been held to 3 runs or less in 5 of their last 7 games. Kansas City is unlikely to enjoy much success at the plate against Jake Odorizzi. The right-hander has a 2.88 ERA and a fantastic 0.76 WHIP in his 5 starts this season. The fact that he threw another gem in his 2nd start since coming off of the disabled list shows that he’s fully recovered as there were no ill effects after his 1st start off of the DL. The reason I am expecting a pitchers duel here is because KC’s Jason Vargas has allowed just 1 earned run in the 12 innings on the mound spanning his last two starts.

The southpaw also has allowed just 3 earned runs in the 13 and 2/3 innings spanning his last 2 starts against the Rays and they haven’t faced him in 3 years so this is a big edge for him. Odorizzi shut out the Royals in 6 innings in his lone start against them last season. The right-hander has seen the under go 4-1 in his 5 starts this season and the under is 5-1 in the 6 starts Vargas has made this season. The under is 12-7 this season in Royals games after a loss and 14-8 this season in Kansas City’s games against right-handed starters. More of the same early Thursday afternoon. Free Pick on UNDER 7.5 runs in Tampa Bay. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
