TEXAS (105)

It's a homecoming of sorts for Rangers starter Andrew Cashner, Texas native who starred at TCU and gets to take the mound Thursday before a crowd of family and friends. In addition a slight motivational factor favoring Texas, Royals starter Danny Duffy has an ERA of 5.31 in two starts against the Rangers. Back Texas with the underdog price.

KANSAS CITY (-115)

The Kansas City Royals will look for their sixth win in their last seven games when they hit the road to take on the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington, TX on Thursday night. Danny Duffy (2-0, 1.80 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) will get the start for the Rangers and he will be opposed by Andrew Cashner (0-1, 5.06 ERA, 1.50 WHIP), who is scheduled to get the call on the hill for the Rangers. The Royals have posted a perfect 4-0 record in their last four games versus a team from the AL West and they have gone an excellent 4-1 in their last five games where they faced a starting pitcher with a WHIP higher than 1.30. They have also won seven of Duffy's last eight starts when facing a team from the AL West and they are a lights out 8-3 in his last eleven starts versus a team with a winning record. The Rangers, on the other hand, have struggled a bit in the spot they are in here tonight as they have lost four of their last five games where they faced a left-handed starter and they are an awful 1-7 in their last eight games versus a team with a losing record. Throw in the fact that Texas is also just 2-8 in their last ten home games going back to the end of the 2016 season while the Royals are 12-3 when Duffy starts following a quality start in his last appearance and we'll take Kansas City at the pickem or so price to get the win in Arlington on Thursday night.

The Rangers look like the walking dead right now. They are only hitting .200 over the last week and at 5-10 they are kind of a mess. They've won just one of their last six games and they are playing their first game back in Arlington after a long nine-game West Coast swing. They don't get a day off and I think they are going to have some road/home issues after flying in last night. Kansas City has won five of six and their radar is up after a grinding series with the Giants the last two days. Andrew Cashner stinks and Danny Duffy has been outstanding so far this spring. I'll take the hot road team with the better pitcher.

KANSAS CITY (-115)

 

Andrew Cashner got his first start of the season on Saturday and lost 5-0 at Seattle, allowing four of the runs in 5.1 innings. Danny Duffy has picked up where he left off last season in his three starts so far and was outstanding in all of them, getting wins in his last two, and allowing a total of four runs between all three. The price is cheap here because K.C. has scored just seven runs combined in its last four games. The Royals still won three of them. Their bullpen is vastly improved and they've won five of their last six. Royals keep their roll going tonight.

UNDER 9 (-120)

Last night in Kansas City we cashed the UNDER with the Giants/Royals game with ease and tonight we look to hit the well with KC pitching again. Both teams are trending ‘UNDER’ games and last night the Texas Rangers scored 1 run while the Royals allowed 0 runs last night. KC starter tonight will be crafty lefty Danny Duffy who has pitched well in his first 3 starts going 2-0, 1.05 WHIP, 1.80 ERA and his last start he held the Angels to 1-run. Rangers starter Andrew Cashner is coming off a 5-0 loss to the Marniers but when Cashner is on he can be lights out on the mound. Kansas City comes into this 4-game series cashing 6-Straight UNDER games and the Texas Rangers are 4-1 O/U in their last 5 games. Kansas City is 0-4 O/U against AL West teams and the Rangers are 1-6 O/U at home against a left-handed starter.
