MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
Everything was looking just fine for this Kansas City Royals team just a couple of weeks ago, but 11 straight losses later and these guys now have a bit of a mess to clean up and they will look to climb closer to that .500 mark this Friday, as they take on a strong Chicago White Sox team.
Kansas City Royals
The Chicago White Sox will no doubt make it tough on the Royals to break out of this slump, but despite the bad run this team still has a decent amount of talent which can help them bounce back this season.
One of their best batters remain their catcher Salvador Perez who is hitting .280 and has 7 home runs and for a catcher those are extremely good statistics and he clearly helps out a ton, as a bunch of teams are happy if their catcher hits over .220.
A guy they are probably worried about is Jorge Soler, who is just not hitting the ball like he used to hitting under .200 and with only 3 home runs and he was a driving force for this offense in recent years, so they certainly need him to step up here at some point.
The Royals do not have a listed pitcher for this matchup and that is not only worrying because whoever heads to the mound has to deal with this White Sox batting lineup, but because they do not have a whole lot of quality arms out of this bullpen.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are in a completely different boat then the Royals riding a 6 game winning streak and they are getting the job done with their bats, as they are routinely putting up 9+ runs recently and they should have a chance to score plenty once again here.
To say this team is living up to the hype would probably be putting it lightly, as they now have the highest team average in all of the major leagues with .262 and they have had no problem driving in those base runners having already scored 186 runs.
Luis Robert has been an interesting player this year, as he was thought of as a big power hitter and he still may turn out to be that guy, but he is showing his ability to get on base here in 2021 hitting well over .300, but with only 1 home run.
Michael Kopech is going to be the starter here for the White Sox and that should fill this team with a bunch of confidence as he has been lights-out this year with an ERA well under 2 and a record of 2-0.
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The Chicago White Sox are pretty heavy favorites here and rightfully so, as everything points to them getting the job done here and I have no real issues taking the runline with them here to get this closer to even money, as they really should roll here.
