Stephen Nover Free Friday MLB Play

On May 4, 2018, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Tigers at Royals Under 9 minus $1.20

Both the Tigers and Royals have below average offenses. The Royals rank 28 in scoring. Kansas City, though, is swinging its hottest bats of the season averaging six runs during its last six games.

But I’m going to step in with an Under play here. Why? One reason is Ian Kennedy is pitching. The Royals don’t score for him. He gets the worst offensive support of any pitcher. The Under has been a sneaky gold mine when Kennedy takes the mound winning in eight of his last nine starts.

Kennedy isn’t pitching bad. He has a 3.48 ERA on the season and probably won’t have to deal with the feared Miguel Cabrera, who is likely headed to the DL after suffering a hamstring strain Thursday. The Tigers have scored three or fewer runs in seven of their last nine games.

Francisco Liriano is 3-1 with a 3.38 ERA. Opponents are batting just .196 against him. Liriano hasn’t surrendered more than three earned runs during any of his first five starts.

(Editor’s note: Stephen Nover is 10-2 on his last 12 NBA plays, 14-5-2 on his last 21 NHL totals and 19-10 on his last 29 baseball plays. Message him if you’re interested in sports service.)
