The A's are struggling. They are 0-8 in their last 8 games and have lost these contests by an average of 3.1 runs. The Royals, meanwhile, have won 4 of their last 5.
The Royals have the advantage on the mound with Paulino (2.03 ERA) and at the plate in this one. And, plays against road underdogs with a money line of +100 or higher - a team hitting .260 or worse on the season and with an on-base percentage of .300 or worse over their last 15 games against an AL starting pitcher with an ERA of 3.20 or better are 70-18 the last 5 seasons. This system is a perfect 4-0 this season.
Oakland's Colon has been getting rocked lately. He gave up 6 earned runs in his last outing, including two home runs. That's significant because he is 0-8 on the money line after giving up 2 or more home runs in his last outing over the last 2 seasons. We'll take the Royals.
