Royals at Red Sox Under 10 1/2

Anytime a Royals total is priced in double-digits, my first look is to the Under. That’s where I’m landing in today’s game.

Kansas City scores the second-fewest runs in baseball. The Royals are facing James Paxton, who has owned them. Paxton is 3-0 with a 1.70 ERA in seven career starts versus Kansas City. He has struck out 53 Royals in 42 1/3 innings.

This looms as a bullpen game for the Royals with Austin Cox as the opener and Alec Marsh figuring to pitch the bulk of the innings. Cox has a 3.58 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this year.

Marsh hasn’t been very good, but he’s facing a Boston attack that has scored four runs or fewer in 10 of its last 12 games.
