Royals Go Up Big In Series Odds

The Kansas City Royals are up 2-0 in the World Series against the New York Mets. Kansas City is also now -390-favorites to the Mets +330 moneyline to win it all.

The line movement is not much of a surprise as teams have taken 2-0 leads 51 time in World Series history and 41 of those teams went on to win it. However, the Mets are -130-moneyline favorites in Game 3, and it was that other team in New York that came back from being down 0-2 to win the 1995 World Series.

The Mets are favorites tonight mostly due to strikeout master Noah Syndergaard. He has a 3.20 ERA and is 10-8 overall this season. The Royals will counter with Yordano Ventura. Ventura is 13-8 this season with a 4.18 ERA.

The total for tonight is set at 7. The UNDER is the big trend when Syndergaard is on the mound. It is 10-3 on the UNDER when her pitches. The UNDER is also 9-1 in the Royals last ten games when they hold opponents to less than two runs in their prior game.
