Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin

Whit Merrifield went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in the Royals' win over the Indians on Sunday. Merrifield tattooed a opposite-field blast -- his second round-tripper of the season -- off Indians ace Corey Kluber to put the Royals ahead in the second inning. The versatile 30-year-old second baseman isn't a big-time power producer, but he's gone deep 31 times over the last two seasons combined. He's gotten off to an excellent start, hitting .328/.357/.522 with 14 runs scored, seven extra-base hits, seven RBI and five stolen bases in 70 plate appearances.

Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin

Tim Anderson launched a grand slam as the White Sox beat the Yankees 5-2 on Sunday. Anderson took Masahiro Tanaka deep over the right-center field wall in the top of the fourth inning. The 24-year-old shortstop has been scorching hot since returning from paternity leave last Thursday and boasts a .429/.440/.653 batting line with three home runs and 10 RBI over 13 total games this year. He's also stolen five bases and scored nine runs.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals have won just 15 times in their last 56 road games and are 3-10 in their last 13 games overall.

Chicago

The White Sox have dropped 20 of their last 28 games overall and are just 2-8 in their last 10 division games.

Prediction:

The Royals have scored five or more runs in four of their last five games, which spells trouble for Santana, who was shelled for seven earned runs on seven hits with three walks over 3 2/3 innings in his debut against the Rays last Tuesday. The 36-year-old Santana is likely to struggle again, as Kansas City currently owns a 46.4 percent hard-contact rate versus right-handed pitching over the last week of play. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Chicago.

The Pick: Royals/White Sox OVER 9.5
