Royals vs. Rangers O/U 8 Total Runs (-105)

The Kansas City Royals begin a three-game road series with the Texas Rangers sending Brad Keller to the mound against Martin Perez. The weather at Globe Life Field forecasts a warm 88 degrees. The Rangers are -135 moneyline favorites in a game with a 7.9 total, and OddsShopper projects 8.5 runs, leading to a 9.3% return on investment for the over. Keller has a 16.5% strikeout rate, .168 average against and 0.84 WHIP. Last season, he managed a 19.6% strikeout rate, .292 average against and 4.72 FIP. Tonight, Keller is expected to face five righties and four lefties. He has allowed a .247 average, 0.70 home runs per nine innings and 1.2 WHIP against right-handed hitters over his career. The Rangers have a .208 batting average, .574 OPS and 73 wRC+.

Perez has a 18.3% strikeout rate, .204 average against and 1.04 WHIP this season. With Boston last year, Perez had a 19.1% strikeout rate, .293 average against and 4.82 FIP. The Royals are expected to have six righties and three lefties. Perez had a .308 average against, 4.67 xFIP and 35.6% hard contact surrendered to right-handed hitting in 2021. The Kansas City offense has a .234 batting average, .622 OPS and 86 wRC+ when facing left-handed pitching this season. Despite two sputtering offenses facing improved pitching from both Keller and Perez, OddsShopper projects the over as one of the best MLB bets today.
