San Francisco Giants
The Giants are stumbling in April. Neither the offense nor the pitching has gotten out of the gate and to make matters more challenging Buster Posey is dealing with a concussion – he might play Tuesday.
They are in the lower half of the league in all offensive categories and they might be there to stay. There are not a lot of All-Star position players in this group other than Posey.
I am always in favour of backing MadBum. Not only is he a great pitcher but his offensive explosions can be a big advantage. This season, despite his best efforts the Giants have lost all three of his starts…and the were significant favourites in each.
They should be favorites again and now might be the right time to jump on board.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are at .500 as this is being written. That is thanks to a recent four game winning streak. Even though they have been winning lately this team is really struggling to score runs.
Mike Moustakas is having a nice walk year surge. It looks like he could have a career year. The same can be said of Lorenzo Cain.
Jason Vargas has been outstanding this season, really nobody has been better. He is 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA with 14Ks in 13IP. That is a level of effectiveness that just can’t continue but against this lineup he may be able to keep things going in this matchup.
There is nothing scary about the Giants.

Free San Francisco vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
It totally goes against the fibers in my being to fade MadBum, especially when the pitching matchup is what it is but I like the expected value with KC. I think they will probably be about +115 at home. Too good to pass up.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Kansas City ML
Vargas can’t be lights out forever but I like him to be good enough in this one. Unless they put Bumgarner in as a DH and he takes him deep.
