Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin

Jorge Soler went 2-for-4 and swatted a solo home run in a 6-1 win over the Yankees on Thursday. He went deep with the bases empty against impressive young starter Domingo German in the second inning. It was his fifth longball of the season. He has been hitting for power but on the flip side he's been making a lot of outs. He owns a .236/.295/.514 slash line with 14 RBI, eight runs scored and zero steals through 19 games played.

New York Yankees Fantasy Spin

Clint Frazier pegged a pair of singles in four trips to the plate during Thursday's loss to the Royals. His two hits equaled half the Yankee's total in the ballgame. Frazier is smoking hot right now and is getting everyday playing time due to a plethora of injuries to the New York starting lineup. The young outfielder is slashing .347/.358/.612 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 53 plate appearances.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 39-83 in their last 122 meetings with the Yankees.

New York

The Yankees are 46-18 in their last 64 home games against the Royals.

Prediction:

The Yankees torched my over with their team total last night when they scored a run in the bottom of the first inning and was shut out the rest of the way. That said, Junis gives up home runs at a high rate and the Royals managed to score six runs off New York pitching last night. As risky as it feels, I’m taking the over for this game tonight.

The Pick: Royals/Yankees OVER 9
