Las Vegas has the Rays as a -140 betting favorite, while the total sits at over or under 7.5 runs. Close to 70% of tracked MLB bettors are taking the Rays to win here despite the fact that Kansas City won both games played between these teams this year. The Royals won 8-2 and 9-8 over a month ago at home but have lost 4 of their last 5 in Tampa Bay.

The Rays and the Royals have gone over the total in 3 straight games dating back to last season after previously going under in 5 of their last 6 head-to-head meetings. The home team has won 9 of the last 10 between Kansas City and Tampa Bay with the winning team scoring 8 or more runs in 5 of the last 10 matchups.

Tampa Bay will have Jeremy Hellickson (4-2, 1.22 WHIP, 5.18 ERA) on the mound, while Kansas City will counter with Ervin Santana (4-5, 1.03 WHIP, 2.99 ERA). Santana has been brilliant recently but has also proven to be prone to rough starts every once in a while. Hellickson started off slow but is coming off a 6.0 inning shutout of the Baltimore Orioles and has guided his team to wins in 2 of his 3 career starts against the Royals.
