OK, just an incorrect call in last night’s Pirates-White Sox Under 9 play, as I may have been pressing a bit too much with Lucas Giolito involved. Either way, not how I wanted to start off this week, so let’s just get to Wednesday’s slate.

Zylbert’s 2018 MLB Over/Under Betting Record: 23-13-2, +8.6 units

Kansas City Royals @ Baltimore Orioles | O/U: 10

7:05 p.m. ET

Probable Pitchers: Eric Skoglund (1-2, 6.84 ERA) vs. Andrew Cashner (1-4, 4.89 ERA)

Are the oddsmakers overreacting to last night’s scoring outburst by saddling this middle contest of a three-game set with an over/under line of 10? That remains to be seen. Last night, of course, saw the Royals win the series-opener, 15-7, scoring 10 of those runs in the top-half of the first inning, meaning the over hit before the home team came up to bat.
