Kansas City Royals
The Royals really have come out of nowhere, as nobody was talking them up in the preseason and although their record might be slightly because the division has gotten worse, they have no doubt stepped their game up here in 2021 and look like an interesting team to keep your eyes on.
The bats have been a big plus so far, as they are hitting .243 as a team and have already batted in 85 runners which are stats that have them in the top half of baseball in both of those categories. Whit Merrifield once again is leading the team in average with .276, but he is getting plenty of support around him now with guys like Salvador Perez stepping up in a big way and delivering with 5 home runs already as a catcher.
The pitching has been a bit more hit or miss, but they have had a few guys have some quality starts with Brady Singer being especially good in their last game. Danny Duffy will be the one getting the ball for the Royals here though, and he really should fill this Royals team with confidence as Duffy comes into the game with an unreal 0.5 ERA and a 2-1 record and given the matchup he faces on Sunday he could even improve upon those numbers.
The Detroit Tigers on the other hand do not have many people fired up and that is with good reason, as this team still looks like it is in a complete rebuild mode and will likely finish with the worst or second worst record in the league.
The Tigers will send Michael Fulmer to the mound here and that is a good thing for Tigers fans, as he has proven himself to be a solid and reliable pitcher and if this Tigers offense can somehow put up some runs, he will almost assuredly put them in at least a decent position to win the game.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The Kansas City Royals have impressed me thus far this year and I can see them being relevant well into September, so I have to take them on the road here at -135, as they are far superior to Detroit and should be in the -170 range given the pitching matchup.
The Detroit Tigers look to be the worst team in baseball and although I respect Fulmer as a pitcher, I just do not see him getting enough help here in order to get the win, so I am siding with the road Royals in this spot.
