With the Royals at -209 to pick up the win, there is some good value in taking the over at 8.5 runs. Our predicted final score is 5.1 to 5 in favor of the Royals, giving us some wiggle room if you wanted to take the over/under line.

Looking at the starting pitchers, we have Michael Wacha finishing with five strikeouts compared to Chris Flexen at five. However, we have Flexen going five innings compared to Wacha at 5.1. If you’re looking for a player prop bet, you could look to take the under on Wacha’s strikeout line.
