Cleveland Guardians vs. Kansas City Royals Prediction

1u - No Runs 2nd Inning / Royals Under 6.5 Team Total (-140) (Bet $140 to win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings*

The NRSI’s have been working, I don’t see why I would stop betting on them. We have somehow won 16 straight NRSI’s and don’t plan to stop tonight. This game feels like another really good one to target. We have Greinke versus McKenzie here. The game's total is 6.5 which always bodes really well for us. Let's get into why we like this one.

First off, we are really trusting McKenzie here. Not just for the three outs in the 2nd but to prevent Kansas City from scoring 7+ runs. McKenzie has pitched against Kansas City three times and holds a 2.45 ERA against them. McKenzie is also a better home pitcher posting a 2.83 home ERA. Kansas City shouldn’t hit the over by themselves against him.

On the mound for KC is Zack Greinke. The 38-year-old vet is at it again and with the year ending will be looking to finish strong. Greinke is on the road where he is notoriously bad but he plays Cleveland who he has dominated this year. Greinke has a 1.08 ERA versus Cleveland in three outings and has only allowed 5 RBIs against these Cleveland bats in 86 at-bats. Both of these pitchers are 3/3 on shutout 2nd innings against the other team and Kansas City has no business hitting the over by themselves. Let's keep it rolling!
