Kansas City Royals
The Royals’ record in the first month of the season belies their full-on rebuild in 2018. At 7-20 they sit last in a yucky AL Central division that also features the blowing-it-up Chicago White Sox and the underachieving Minnesota Twins.
In this series, Boston’s offensive juggernaut should dominate KC’s lousy pitching staff, which as a group has compiled a 5.22 ERA, ranking a measly 29th in the bigs. If the Royals want to pull the upset, then catcher Sal Perez and OF Alex Gordon – both freshly activated off the disabled list – will have to make an impact on the road.
Boston Red Sox
Those BoSox have been humming along to the tune of a 20-7 record, good for tops in the East and also enjoying a pristine 9-3 home record. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez have been slugging like MVP candidates and there’s lots of other fantastic young talent sitting around; Rafael Devers and Andrew Benintendi fit the bill in that department.
The Sox rank in the top 10 in every major hitting and pitching category in the MLB through the first month. The smart money is on Boston continuing to have its way with an American League dormat in the comfy confines of Fenway.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
Kansas City’s Hammel has been pitching quite well to date (3.35 ERA) and the Royals even won consecutive games for the first time this season in the last series versus Chicago, but Hammel is gettable for a lineup as potent as Boston’s. Once the Red Sox get into KC’s bullpen, they can and should make further hay.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox -1.5
It’s reasonable to assume that the Red Sox will put up a crooked number on the wayward visiting ballclub. There are so many MLB clubs in rebuild mode that it’s not good for competitive balance; you could well see a poster-child of that problem in Fenway on Monday night.
