Kyle Gibson, former 1st round draft pick in 2009, is off to a rough start to the 2017 season. In four games this season, he’s only pitched 17 innings total an average of just over four innings per outing.
In those four outings, he’s given up no fewer than three runs and has twice given up more than five runs per start.
His short outings haven’t helped a bullpen that has been below average this season and having to carry an extra load.
The bright spot is that the Twins offense have done a good job of keeping pace, with a near top 10 offense thus far this season and are averaging over four runs per game.
Kansas City Royals
Ian Kennedy is quietly having an outstanding season thus for the Royals, he has a 2.08 ERA and his batting average against is .169.
Much of this is aided by Kennedy being an extreme fly ball pitcher in a cavernous Kauffman field with a lot of athletic outfielders.
In addition, his LOB% is at a near top ten rate, some of that may be aided by luck while some may be attributable to a high level defense.
Kennedy has also been effective at preventing homeruns on his fly balls.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Gibson has struggled all year and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight, while Kennedy has pitched well this year, especially at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8.5
While Gibson might get blown up, Kennedy has been effective at home in his big outfield. As long as Kennedy keeps the ball in the ballpark the final should be under.
