Though Kansas City has been inconsistent, the Royals have averaged almost five runs in the last seven contests after four players had multiple hits in Friday’s victory. Expect offense to continue to be the answer for Kansas City as they hunt down the first-place Detroit Tigers in the American League Central. Furthermore, the Over is 5-0 in Indians last 5 games as a home favorite.
