Royals to go with bullpen game on Sunday

The Royals will wrap up the first half of the season by employing a bullpen day on Sunday against the White Sox. So is the trend in Major League Baseball. Burch Smith will start for the Royals and is expected to work around three innings.

White Sox' Giolito works 7 1/3 innings in loss to Astros

Lucas Giolito yielded two earned runs over 7 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Astros. It was a relatively excellent outing from the 23-year-old right-hander, who entered the day with a 6.93 season ERA. Giolito dropped that number to 6.59 while scattering three hits and three walks over his seven-plus frames against the defending World Series champs. Unfortunately, the White Sox offense managed just one run of support. Up next for Giolito is a start at home against the Royals.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are winless in their last six games played on Sunday.

Chicago

The White Sox have lost four of Giolito's last five home starts.

Prediction:

The under is 16-7-2 in Giolito's last 25 starts overall, is 9-4-1 in his last 14 starts when their opponent scored five runs or more in their previous game and is a perfect 8-0 in Giolito's last eight starts when pitching the third game of a series. The under has also cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams and is 3-0-1 in Giolito's last four outings against the Royals.

 

The Pick: Royals/White Sox under 9.5
