Massive mismatch on the mound but is that enough to fade KC. Cleveland did not win Bieber’s first game and their lack of offense is going to make backing him no sure thing this season.
Kansas City Royals
For Kansas City to have success this season they are going to have to continue to hit and find a pitcher or two that blossoms along the way. I know that might seem like a pretty obvious formula but at the same time, I think it is realistic too.
Jakob Junis could be one of those arms that clicks but I am not sure what we are getting here. He has been close to perfect in a couple of relief outings but tis will be his first start of the season. Last year he was very bad.
The KC bullpen has been more than good so far, sitting 6th in the league in WAR. They might have to cut bait with Wade Davis though, he is pretty much done.
It is only a few games into the season but the Indians might be in trouble. The offense is averaging just over three runs per game and the pitching has not been elite. That does not add up to winning most of the time.
Shane Bieber looked mortal on opening day giving up a few runs to Detroit. He also struck out 12 in 6 innings so there is no reason to think he won’t be one of the best pitchers in the game again this season.
The bullpen has been a little shaky though, just 17th in WAR, as a comparison to Kansas City’s. There are some big arms, but will there be leads to protect.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
No lines yet for this one. I am not going to be fading Bieber here, or perhaps at all this season. Here’s hoping we can get some decent value with the Indians due to their struggles. You can take the run line if you want some more value I just worry about that offense.
