Tampa Bay Rays vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

You could reduce the juice even more and take Kansas City’s under for less runs but after yesterdays debacle, I am playing it extra safe. In no world should the NRSI hit but the juice reducer doesn’t, that was a sad feeling. Today is another great opportunity to hit a similar bet and right the wrong. This game has a 6.5 total and should be a prime time to attack the NRSI, both offenses are so bad and avoiding Lowe, Arozarena, Perez and Witt will be huge in helping our chances.

This is our 2nd bet on this game as we are already on the u3.5 first 5 innings so these bets go hand in hand. I really believe in these two pitchers today and of all the innings I’m the most confident it is definitely the 2nd inning. The first inning will feature some heavy hitters on both sides but the 2nd inning will have a significant downgrade in power for both teams and these pitchers have the talent to throw up some zero’s in the run column.

McClanahan is due a bounce back performance and Singer has been throwing elite ball lately. These two offenses are horrid and the juice reducer feels safe. The Royals have score 1 run in their last 35 innings. Scoring one run in nearly four games and then facing a guy like McClanahan is a tough ask. The Royals should have no business scoring 7 runs. Even if McClanahan is weirdly off but the NRSI hits we can have faith in the Rays bullpen that is ranked 7th best in the MLB. This bet feels good and the NRSI Gods owe us, let's roll!
