J Lester - L Listed J Shields - R Listed
Risking 1.00 To Win 0.93 (Loss)
I am making a 1 unit play on the under here. We have been on an absolute tear with our MLB picks and I want to ease into the playoffs to see how things shape up before we make any large plays.
This is the reason the As brought in Lester. To be a playoff starting pitcher, and they are going to need him to perform as they don't have the offense they did prior to trading Cespedes. Looking at his recent performance he holds a 1.8 ERA over his last 3 games and shut out the Mariners. But the problem the As have is they can't seem to put up runs.
On the other side the Royals are starting Shields who has been their best pitcher lately and consistently holding teams to 3 or fewer runs. On top of that they have one of the best closing teams in the business. Overall this game is a true coin flip, but I like it to be a lower scoring coin flip. Play the under.
Lets Get It
