Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals couldn’t have had a worse start to the season. They got swept in their opening series by the Twins, who are projected to finish in last place in the American League Central.
The biggest problem the Royals had was the seventh inning. In each of the games the Twins scored at least three runs. To win this game the Royals need two things to happen.
They need to get better production from their bullpen and they need to stop walking people.
If they can have those two things happen they can win this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Houston Astros. They have had a great start to their season winning their first three games.
In the first three games they have only given up a total of four runs.
The Astros usually have success when Mike Fiers is on the mound. Last year he had an 11-8 record with a 4.48 ERA. He is really a key for the Astros to have success this season.
He is a pitcher that really likes to attack the strike zone early and often. If he has control he should be in for a good game against a Royals team that hasn’t scored much.

The Houston Astros come into this game with all the momentum and they are going to leave this game with still all the momentum.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Astros -160
I expect Fiers to come in and really shut down the Royals for six or seven innings. The Astros Bullpen will come in and close the deal.
