you know, after thinking about it a little more I think i'm also going to ride the under. Look at how these series have been playing out so far. We have two games and they both finished 3-2 with both teams spliting. This may be another game where these teams are just so bad they can't put up any runs and this game opened at 9 and is now sitting at 8.5 because everyone bet the under would be my guess. I like boyd and the Royals aren't that big of dogs so maybe it's because Vegas thinks no one will put up any runs and it's a coinflip on who will actually score. SO i'll take under 8.5

I just don't understand this line at all right now. We have Boyd who should be considered an ace but plays for the Tigers so no one really know's who he is, going against Homer Bailey who gives up more hard contact than any pitcher out there. The game is being played in Omaha so maybe there's something to that and I'm missing it but I'm not sure how this line is -122. Maybe it's the fact that the Tigers lineup is so horrible but so is the Royals! The only thing the royals have going for them is they are quick as shit on the bases and have guys that can straight up fly but they lack in every other department. So I'm just not going to over think this one and take the tigers because Boyd is so much better than Bailey. Look at these pitchers price on draftkings, Boyd cost 10.7k and Bailey is 5.2k so again, is there something i'm missing?????? If there is please let me know

This should be a cool game to see since it will be the first MLB in Nebraska. Preview for the College World Series, which is always an exciting time in baseball. But for this game I will take Matt Boyd over Homer Bailey any day. Homer Bailey has been terrible this year while Boyd has gone 2-2 with a 3.07 ERA on the road. Bailey has not been right the past couple of years and the Royals are 1-4 in his last five starts on grass. Take the Tigers in this one.80%

Royals Review: Lopez feels right at home, helps lead Royals to 7-3 win over Tigers
The last time the Royals had won a series, we still had over a week of waiting before Avengers: Endgame. School was still in session. The St. Louis Blues were tied with the Winnipeg Jets at 2-2 in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The first four games of the NBA playoffs had just taken place.
In other words, it has been a minute since the Royals took down the Indians on April 13 to give them their last series win. In a cruel bit of irony that fans of the 2000's Royals waited over a decade for, the entire team was actually sent to Omaha in search of their first series win in exactly two months and they came through.
Bless You Boys: Royals 7, Tigers 3: Matthew Boyd has rare off night in blowout loss
Between the Detroit Tigers getting a nationally televised game, playing in Omaha the first ever MLB contest in Nebraska, an incredibly favorable pitching matchup and another Casey Mize Double-A start, every sign seemingly pointed to an enjoyable evening for the club.
It was not an enjoyable evening, as the Tigers lost 7-3.
After Matthew Boyd labored through a cumbersome first inning against the Kansas City Royals, ESPN experienced prolong technical difficulties for over two innings, showing live streams from various other games around the league. During the outage, the Royals scored two runs -- one off a first-career home run from Nicky Lopez and one off a Boyd balk.
Royals Review: Game LXVIII: Royals v. Tigers
The Royals haven't had a lot of success against teams this season. Typically, teams that are 21-46 don't succeed against other teams. Through nearly half the season, the Royals have a winning record against just one team -- the Cleveland Indians.
They have, however, outscored three teams in their head-to-head matchups -- the Indians, Rangers, and tonight's opponent, the Tigers. They are just 2-6 against the Tigers despite outscoring them in their eight matchups.
The Tigers are coming into this matchup at just 25-39. For those doing the math at home, that means that 25% of Detroit's wins have come against Kansas City.

Royals Review: Who's rebuilding better - the Royals or Tigers?
Just five years ago, the Royals and Tigers were battling for the Central Division title. The Tigers would edge the Royals by one game, but the Royals would get the last laugh by making the playoffs as a Wild Card, winning an epic game, and going on an amazing run that would lead to a pennant and a championship the following year.
The Tigers stumbled and missed the playoffs the next two seasons, and in the middle of the 2017, the sell-off began. Big money veterans Justin Verlander, Justin Upton, J.D. Martinez, and Alex Avila were all traded within a few weeks of each other, and the Tigers bottomed out with 98 losses, their worst season since 2003.
Royals Review: Bullpen fails Royals in 3-2 loss to Tigers
It was a trend early in the season, and it reared its ugly head on a Wednesday night in June. The Royals were betrayed by their bullpen, falling 2-1 to the Detroit Tigers to knot up a three-game series.
Danny Duffy looked like he was going to have a disastrous evening when he opened his night with back-to-back walks. He gave up a run in the first and another in the fourth, but other than that, he put forth a really good performance. He pitched seven innings, allowing just four hits and striking out seven batters. He needed 99 pitches.
