The Kansas City Royals will host the Cincinnati Reds for an interleague three-game series starting on Monday. This will be the first meeting between these teams this season.
The Cincinnati Reds are 2nd in the National League Central with a 43-40 record after winning their 4th straight game on Sunday and sweeping the Chicago Cubs.
The Reds offense is one of the bests in the league, they are 7th in the MLB with a .248 batting average and 6th with 108 home runs. Cincinnati is led by their 2 elected All-Star starting outfielders Nick Castellanos (.340 AVG, 16 HR, 53 RBI) and Jesse Winker (.314 AVG, 19 HR, 48 RBI).
Kansas City Royals
After getting off to a good start early on, the wheels have unraveled on the Royals season, with the club only winning 6 of their last 27 games.
Kansas City enters Monday with a 35-48 record on the season, good for 4th in the American League Central.
The Royals sit near the bottom of baseball in almost all of the offensive categories and their pitching hasn’t helped the cause either. Despite having the 10th best batting average Kansas City is 25th in scoring. Additionally, their team ERA is 28th at 5.06.
Injuries have led to struggles as well, with Andrew Benintendi out, along with both shortstops, Adalberto Mondesi and Emmanuel Rivera. In terms of pitchers they are down 4 relievers as well.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Reds are 43-40 overall
- Reds are 20-20 on the road
- Kansas City is 35-48 overall
- Kansas City is 20-20 at home
Cincinnati Reds vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Cincinnati is on a bit of a hot streak after sweeping the struggling Cubs while Kansas City continues to struggle. The Reds are even on the road this season while the Royals are even at home so there isn’t an advantage either way in that regards.
Neither of these pitchers have been great, as both carry in an even record and ERA’s of 4+.
That being said Cincy hasn’t hit great off lefties this season and KC doesn’t boast a great offense either.
Take the under.
