MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Kansas City Royals are looking more and more legit with every passing win and they have yet another opportunity to put more room between themselves and the rest of the teams in the AL Central this Monday when they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
Kansas City Royals
They are getting the job done here in 2021 with both their batting and their pitching, as both units have contributed heavily to the position the Royals now find themselves in, as they do not overly rely on either the bats or the pitching.
The Royals starting pitching specifically has been on point, as they already have 5 quality starts under their belts and Brad Keller will now get the chance to make that 6 as he gets the start here against the Tigers.
Keller will need to be better here though, as he has an ERA at 12, as he has not been able to get his command down as of yet and has given up power and good contact when opponents are hitting the ball. The Detroit Tigers may present a great opportunity for him to get his season back on track though, as the Tigers have one of the worst batting lineups in all of the major leagues.
The Tigers were decent enough to start the season, but the fact they have gone 1 and 8 in their last 9 games means they are probably who we thought they were coming into this season, as they were expected to end up towards the bottom of the division.
The Tigers do have a few decent bats in their lineup who can do some damage though, and that statement is especially true with their catcher Wilson Ramos who already has 6 home runs, but the fact that this team cannot consistently get on base is shown by the fact he has only 8 RBI on the season despite having 6 homers.
Spencer Turnbull is coming off of his first start of the season, and it was an impressive start going 5 innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates in an eventual win, but he will need to bring his A-game here, as the Royals have a much better batting unit compared to the Pirates.
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I am still just going to continue riding the KC Royals in this series against the Tigers despite the Tigers maybe having a slight edge in terms of the starter, as they have way more talent and these odds really shouldn’t even be all that close.
The Royals have way more depth in terms of batting, and when this game gets into the bullpens, the Royals will also have the upper hand in that department too, so it is tough to pass up on the road favorites in this spot, as they really should be beating up on a team like the Tigers.
