5* MLB OVER/UNDER BLUE CHIP GAME OF THE MONTH

---A's/Royals OVER 8.5---

With the wind expected to be blowing out to straight center at nearly 15 mph tonight, I look for the A's and Royals to have little trouble eclipsing the 8.5 total set for this game. Both of tonight's starters should struggle to pitch deep as they both are fly ball pitchers

The Royals have scored an impressive 30 runs over their last four games and you have to like their chances of putting up a big number against Oakland's Tom Milone, who is 3-4 with a 5.04 ERA on the road (9 starts) and comes in struggling to the tune of a 7.31 ERA and 1.750 WHIP over his last three.

The A's will also be licking their chops offensively, as they face off against a struggling Wade Davis, who is 4-6 with a 5.55 ERA in 16 starts, 1-3 with a 4.53 ERA at home and a miserable 6.43 ERA over his last three. Davis has historically struggled against Oakland with a 6.75 ERA over three starts. BET THE OVER!
