Total: -105/+7½ Over

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Result: Win

The Kansas City Royals opened the season with a high-scoring series opposing the Chicago White Sox. Here they'll host a Minnesota team that put a 9-3 beating on Cleveland last time out. "It was a good day offensively for the whole group," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. "You can look up and down the lineup, it was fun to watch."

I think we'll see a decent amount of action over the plate for both sides in this contest.

Minnesota right-hander Jose Berrios (1-0, 0.00 ERA) struck out 10 while holding the Cleveland Indians to two hits over 7 2/3 scoreless innings home at Target Field in his season debut. We can however note that the 24 year old posted a 4.85 ERA in 15 road starts last season and over is 4-1 in Berrios' last five road starts.

The Royals hand the ball to right-hander Brad Keller (1-0, 0.00 ERA) who held the White Sox to one walk and two hits through seven scoreless innings on Opening Day. To me it looks like the books have set the total too low here though, putting way to much emphasis on the two pitchers Opening Day performances. We can also note that over is 4-0 in the last four meetings at Kauffman.

8* play on OVER.
