#923 ASA PLAY ON Kansas City Royals -125 over Oakland A's, Tuesday at 9:40 PM ET - The Royals have slumped in B2B series but they played the Yankees and the Dodgers! That is part of the key to the value here because now Kansas City takes on one of the worst teams in the majors. The A's have lost 27 of 36 games against teams with a winning record on the season! The Royals have won 29 of 42 games against teams that do not have a winning record on the season. Kansas City, as you can see, takes care of business against lesser teams while Oakland struggles against winning teams. Also, the Athletics enter this game on a 9-game losing streak! KC is 13-6 against AL West teams and the A's are 3-14 against AL Central teams. In looking at the pitching match-up here, we also like Marsh over Harris in this one. The Royals Alec Marsh is off a great start versus the Yankees and he is 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA in his 5 night starts this season and opponents hitting only .158 against him in those starts! Hogan Harris has allowed 2 homers in 2 of his last 3 starts. Harris has limited action this season but also pitched for Oakland last season and he has compiled a 5.81 ERA in his first two seasons at the MLB level. The Royals batting average ranks in the top 10 in the majors while the Athletics batting average is dead last. Superb spot to grab the situational value with the stronger team in a great spot and available at fair price on the road! We will take it! Lay it!
