The team has lost 3.1 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 2.1 units against the spread (ATS).

Ohtani said he does not remember the last time he played in a game when it was that cold, but said he grew up in cold weather. Los Angeles has covered the spread six times in its last seven games and the total has gone over in four of those seven. Los Angeles has an over/under record of 8-5. In his first start against the Tigers, he went seven innings and allowed just three hits.

The Royals scored a run in seventh and left the bases loaded.

All the home runs came during batting practice.
