    No. I could understand the temptation for some people but I would never lay chalk like that.

    I've got kc -1.5 +550. That's an automatic bet for me.

    It takes a brave man to bet on the Royals at the moment. It also takes a brave man to bet against Oakland.

    Depending on my early card, I might take KC for a unit.

    Oakland's bats have fallen asleep the past few days, but Lima should wake them back up.

    I'll complete the thought for you:

    . . . and it takes a complete loony toon to actually take Kansas -1.5.

    Lunatic Department, Mudcat speaking.



    Seriously, I'm not so much brave as I am machine-like. I see an alternate runline over +250, I bet it.

    I have found that thinking about it only messes things up for me.

    Well I did think that, just didn't post it.

    Although on the flip side, since the Royals have lost 18 on the trot, they've got to bounce back at some point. Well that's the theory anyway - can't see them doing it against the A's.

    I think this is dangerous territory. Look at Harden's past 3 or 4 starts. Not real good outings. I may be stupid but if I had to play it, I'd take KC.

    I'm patiently awaiting the comeback by my mighty Royals. I'm sure it's going to start any second now.

    Anyone jumping on this one?

    Mike Wood pitching for the Royals tonight and he has been knocked about over the past month - looks like his ERA is just short of 9 over his last 6 appearances.

    They are tied 4-4 in the 12th right now. This would be a really nice win for Royals betters.

    Oakland had a chance to win it in the bottom of the 9th but, crosby stranded the runner at 3rd.

    The Royals just need three outs to take this series. Who knew.
