Stephen Nover's Run Line Game of the Week
(MLB) Kansas City vs. Houston, 08/23/2021 8:10 PM, Score: 7 - 1
Point Spread: -1.50 | -121.00 Houston (Home)
Result: Loss
The Astros are in a blowout spot and the motivation should be there after they lost three of four at Kansas City last week. Veteran Zack Greinke is just the pitcher to hold the Royals in check while the powerful Houston offense does its damage against Daniel Lynch.

The rebuilding Royals actually enter this matchup having just swept the Cubs in Chicago. The Royals, though, are not a good road team and the Cubs hoisted the white flag at the trade deadline. The Cubs' lineup looks like a minor league roster now. 

Daniel Lynch gets another start in his audition with the Royals. He has a 5.12 ERA. The Astros just saw him six days ago. Lynch shut the Astros down holding them to one run in seven innings. I don't see that happening again. Houston leads the majors in batting average and is second in slugging percentage.

Greinke is having another solid year going 11-3 with a 3.43 ERA.
