The Indians come off of a doubleheader in Minnesota after getting rained out on Wednesday. The Indians won game one and the first game on Thursday. They are going for the sweep as I write this but are down 2-1 in the fifth inning.
Corey Kluber gets the ball to start this weekend’s series against the Royals, the Indians with a real chance to bury Kansas City and unofficially seize the AL Central.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have had it a little tough the last couple weeks. They were playing as well as any team in the league but Salvador Perez’s injury coincided with a real tough stretch on the schedule. As a result, KC has fallen out of a playoff spot after it looked like they were the strongest contender to join the Yankees in the play-in game.
The good news is that they were off on Thursday while the Indians played 18 innings. Ian Kennedy will have a rested bullpen and defense behind him but he will have to be his best against Kluber, who seemingly never has a bad start. The Royals sit 5.5 back in the division and are still very much alive in the Wild Card.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: the Indians win with Kluber.
That’s the not the tough part. The tough part is figuring out how to play this. The Indians are too pricey but I don’t like the Royals with the 1.5, either.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 8.0 (-105)
We’ll play the over and hope KC can scratch three runs against Kluber. This one feels a little doomed though.
