The Detroit Tigers will open a three-game series on the road at Kauffman Stadium on Friday afternoon against the Kansas City Royals.
The Detroit Tigers are 3rd in the American League Central with a 47-51 record after winning their 7th straight game on Thursday. The Tigers are perfect since the All-Star break with a 3 game sweep on the road in Minnesota then a 4 game sweep of the Rangers at home.
The Tigers are led in nearly every offensive category by 2B Jonathan Schoop. He has a team high .287 batting average with 105 hits but also has shown some power with 17 HR’s and 59 RBI’s.
Detroit has the 23rd best team ERA in the league with a 4.63 average.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City enters Friday with a 39-55 record on the season, which places them last in the American League Central. They are 18 games back from the American League best Chicago White Sox for the division lead.
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 27th in scoring. Additionally, their team ERA is 28th at 5.06.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Tigers are 47-51 overall
- Tigers are 19-29 on the road
- Kansas City is 39-55 overall
- Kansas City is 22-24 at home
Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Peralta will have some added motivation ahead of Friday’s start. The Royals never gave Peralta a shot to be a starter in Kansas City but he’s proven to be a valuable piece in the Tigers’ rotation this year.
The Tigers have been given a generous stretch of the season with the Twins, Rangers, and Royals. So far, they have capitalized on the opportunity and have yet to drop a game.
I’m taking Detroit to keep their streak alive and win the series opener.
