Oakland 1 @ Kansas City 3 | 06/25 | 12:10 AM UTC

Kansas City -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Not even going to wait on this Friday game. Oakland found a creative way to lose Thursday vs. Seattle with Frankie Montas losing a no-hitter in the eighth inning and then the bullpen imploding in a crushing 2-1 defeat. That's one it will take a bit to get over. Then the team had to get on a plane and fly halfway across the country while the Royals were resting Thursday. Zack Greinke will come off the injured list for the Royals and has a 2.49 ERA at home. Look, Kansas City stinks, it just stinks less in this case and appears to have all the intangibles on its side. The Royals actually have won five of seven. Oakland's Cole Irvin has a 5.02 road ERA.
