I don’t want anything to do with either pitcher here if I’m being honest, but I do think that the starters play a big role here in getting us to the over. Eli Morgan’s done nothing but get torched this season while the Royals have had trouble getting consistently strong outings from their starting pitchers. I don’t know if we see 20 combined runs again, but I do see double-digits coming rather easily, so give me the over here.
