Normally there’s not much value on an MLB team favored by over -200 or even by -150 or more for that matter. Is that really the case though? The Twins look like just about as sure a thing as possible when they host Kansas City on Saturday night.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals would provide a great payout of +200 if they can get the win at Target Field on Saturday. How big of an ‘if’ is that though? Prior to Friday’s series opener, Kansas City had played 9 straight home games, winning just 3 of them.
Kansas City had won 2 of 3 vs. Detroit before heading out to Target Field. The Royals are just 8-23 on the road this season. Kansas City has won just 15 of their last 57 away tilts dating back to last season and has also dropped six in a row on Saturdays in 2019.
The Royals cannot afford to get into a firework display vs. the potent Minnesota offense. This is because Kansas City has been held to 2 runs or less in 3 of the last 5 while the Twins have scored at least 6 in four straight games.
To say Saturday’s pitching matchup favors the Twins is most definitely an understatement. Minnesota sends Jake Odorizzi to the hill as he tries to bounce back from an uncharacteristically poor outing in which he allowed…1 ER. Prior to that, the right-hander had held three straight opponents scoreless.
Kansas City counters with Glenn Sparkman who hasn’t been bad, but has an incredibly small margin of error vs. the Twins #1 ranked offense that has 132 HR in 68 games. Sparkman has allowed 1 ER and 2ER in his last two starts although both were at home. When he started away on May 29th, The White Sox put up 4ER in just 1.0 IP.
Saturday night’s O/U is 9.5 which is predicated almost solely on the Twins offense considering the way Odorizzi has pitched. Can Minnesota get double digits themselves? They have in 2 of their last 4 and have gone 5-15 as a team vs. Sparkman.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Royals are 0-6 last 6 Saturday games
- Royals are 5-16 last 21 in game 2 of a series
- Twins are 10-2 last 12 Saturday games
- Twins are 51-22 last 73 home games
- Twins are 12-2 in Odorizzi’s last 14 home starts
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
There might not even be much value in the RL for Minnesota in this one depending on how Friday night’s game goes. Anything less than -150 is a take but otherwise a low scoring game – despite the prowess of the Twins offense- is in the cards with Odorizzi on the hill.
