2:10 p.m. ET: Boston Red Sox (54-55) at Kansas City Royals (43-65)

The Royals have taken two of the first three games in this four-game set. Kansas City is coming off a 5-4 win on Saturday, cashing as +130 home favorites. In this afternoon's series finale, Boston hands the ball to righty Kutter Crawford (3-3, 3.86 ERA) and Kansas City counters with fellow righty Brad Keller (5-12, 4.61 ERA). This line opened with the Red Sox listed as a -125 road favorite and the Royals a +115 home dog. Sharps expect Boston to bounce back and earn a series split, steaming the Red Sox up from -125 to -140. Non-division road favorites are 186-118 (61%) this season. Favorites off a loss who made the playoffs the previous season are 208-115 (64%). Boston is 28-23 as a favorite. Kansas City is 30-54 as a dog. Boston is 4-2 in Crawford's last six starts. Crawford has given up three runs or less in all of those six starts. 

 

2:10 p.m. ET: Toronto Blue Jays (59-48) at Minnesota Twins (57-50)

After dropping the series opener, the Twins have won the last two games of this four-game set. Minnesota posted a 7-3 win on Saturday, cashing as short -105 home dogs. In this afternoon's series finale, Toronto turns to righty Kevin Gausman (8-8, 3.06 ERA) and Minnesota starts fellow veteran righty Chris Archer (2-5, 4.05 ERA). This line opened with the Blue Jays listed as a -150 road favorite and the Twins a +135 road dog. Pros have laid the chalk with Toronto to bounce back, steaming the Jays up from -145 to -165. Sunday teams off a loss playing an opponent who missed the playoffs the previous season are 102-57 (64%). The Jays hold the edge at the plate, hitting .264 compared to .251 for Minnesota. Gausman is coming off a 3-1 win over the Rays in which he went 8 innings, gave up no runs and struck out 10. We could also be looking at a lower scoring game, as the total is 8.5 with the under juiced to -115. 

 

2:35 p.m. ET: Chicago White Sox (54-53) at Texas Rangers (48-59)

The Rangers have won two of the first three games in this four-game set. Texas just blanked Chicago 8-0 on Saturday, cashing as +100 home dogs. In this afternoon's series finale, the White Sox send out Lucas Giolito (7-6, 5.06 ERA) and the Rangers rebuttal with fellow righty Spencer Howard (2-3, 6.82 ERA). This line opened with Chicago listed as a -140 road favorite and Texas a +130 home dog. Sharps have sided with Chicago to earn a split, driving the White Sox up from -140 to -150. Favorites who made the playoffs last season against opponents who did not are 410-237 (63%). Chicago holds the edge at the plate, hitting .256 compared to .239 for Texas. The White Sox are 44-41 against righties. Texas is 29-44 against righties. The public sees two high ERA pitchers and are hammering the over. However, despite this lopsided over betting the total is 8.5 juiced -120 to the under, signaling sharp under money and a possible fall down to 8.
