The Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals will wrap up a three-game series on Sunday. Each team has won one game in the American League matchup but Boston is favored to take the rubber match. Let’s take a look at the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Red Sox vs. Royals, 2:10 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Red Sox -127

Kansas City managed to steal a game from Boston on Friday but has been inconsistent as of late. The Royals have dropped seven of their last eight games and 12 of their last 14. Getting a second win against the American League East-leading Red Sox will be difficult with Mike Minor on the mound. The 33-year-old has given up 17 hits and 10 earned runs in 19 23 innings this month. Boston is a top-three team in hits (620), runs (359), batting average (.257), and slugging percentage (.439).

Player Prop: Rafael Devers O.5 RBIs (+142)

Devers had a dry spell at the beginning of June but notched at least one RBI in five straight games before going 0-for-4 on Saturday. Boston’s RBI leader hasn’t had any trouble making contact and has recorded at least one hit in 12 of the 17 games he’s appeared in this month. He’s in one of the best positions to drive players in batting behind Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez.
