MLB Betting Lines – Free Picks: Royals 8-2 vs. Rays

We split with our free picks yesterday after Milwaukee (-120) lost by a single run against struggling Philadelphia, however, overall we broke even due to our other pick being a decent size underdog, the Kansas City Royals.

Today we can’t help but be back on the Royals -113 at Sportsbook.com.

Same reasons as yesterday only the pitching duel appears to favor KC even more so than yesterday.

The Royals LH Jason Vargas (8-3, 3.32 ERA) gave up four hits while tossing seven shutout innings at Minnesota last Wednesday and has won four of his last five starts overall.  He is 4-4 with a 3.10 ERA in 10 appearances (nine starts) against Tampa Bay.

The Rays RH Jeremy Hellickson (2013: 12-10, 5.17) returns to the Majors after going 1-4 with a 7.23 ERA and giving up 38 hits in 18 2/3 innings at Triple-A Durham.  He hasn't exactly pitched great against the Royals in the past.  His record is 1-2 in six career games (five starts) versus the Royals with a 5.97 ERA.

The Royals, meanwhile, are 8-2 in their last ten games against Tampa Bay.
