The Kansas City Royals will head to Busch Stadium on Friday night for an interleague 3 game weekend series versus the St. Louis Cardinals.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have had a disappointing season and enter this series at 47-60, 4th in the AL Central. They are 15 games behind the Chicago White Sox for the division lead.
Despite sitting far back in the division, Kansas City has done well against the White Sox as of late. They took 3 of 4 games at home last week and outscored Chicago 15-10. They just completed a 3 game trip to Chicago and grabbed 2 rare road wins to win the head-to-head series once again.
Kansas City was sellers at the deadline and dealt their best pitcher Danny Duffy to the Dodgers and home run leader Jorge Soler to the Braves.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals sit below .500 on the season and are 11.5 games back from the Brewers in the NL Central.
St. Louis will hope to turn their homestand around after being swept by the Braves in a battle of the most average teams in the league. In the 3 game weekday series, the Cardinals were outscored 21-9 by the Braves revamped offense.
The Cardinals have underperformed as well this season. Offensive issues have mounted to place St. Louis at just 3.99 runs per as repeat postseason aspirations appear unlikely for the club with Milwaukee owning the NL Central. Cardinals defense is a slight negative, allowing 4.38 runs.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Royals are 47-60 overall
- Royals are 19-35 on the road
- Cardinals are 53-55 overall
- Cardinals are 30-24 at home
Free Kansas City Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Kansas City enter after grabbing a big road series win over the White Sox while the Cardinals were swept by the Braves.
Those games were a bit of an anomaly as the Royals have not been a good road team while the Cardinals have had a solid record at Busch Stadium.
I’d also give the pitching edge to St. Louis as Wainwright has played solid at home despite his 37 year old age.
I’m taking St. Louis to bounce back in a close game.
