Pick: Kansas City Royals -144
The Kansas City Royals have quietly compiled an 18-13 record on the season so it is no surprise to see them favored on their home field today. The Yankees have been playing poorly over their past 7 games averaging just 2.7 runs per game. They have a .216 batting average and .278 on base percentage over that same span. The Royals on the other hand have a .270 batting average over the past 7 games. Kansas City has won five of their last eight games and they have a very favorable advantage when facing a struggling Andy Pettitte. Pettitte is 0-2 in his last three starts with a 7.05 ERA. For Kansas City James Shields will take the mound. Shields has a 1.96 ERA in his last 3 starts so it is safe to say Kansas City is the hot team from every angle coming into this game. -Jimmy Boyd
