    3%  Take Houston (#974) on the Run Line

    The Royals are 5-13 on the road – only the lowly Rangers and Marlins have fewer road wins this year.  Ten of those 13 road losses have come by multi-run margins.   They’ve won back-2-back games on the road only once, and they’re coming off a rare blowout win at Houston, a 12-2 smackdown last night.

    KC isn’t good off a win.  Houston IS good off a loss and this potent lineup (30 runs scored in the previous three games before last night; #1 in MLB with an .834 team OPS) is primed to smack around Jorge Lopez, a fly baller who has allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts.

    Brad Peacock had a rough outing against a hot Twins lineup in his last start, but he had solid starts against the Indians, Twins and Rangers prior to that; a prime bounceback spot here.  And if it comes down to a battle of the bullpens, the Astros rank #1 in MLB in bullpen ERA, while KC ranks #26, with an MLB low five saves on the season.  Expect a blowout.  Take the Astros on the Run Line.

    Line Parameter: 3% at (-1.5) -115 or lower, 2% at (-1.5) -116 or higher
