Royals fail to win three straight

The Royals came up short in their bid to win three straight games on Wednesday in a 5-3 loss to the Orioles. Still, the Royals have won four of their last six games. Kansas City is 12-24 overall and 6-11 on the road. KC is putting up 4.00 runs per game this year while allowing 5.44 per contest.

Ian Kennedy gets the start for the Royals this evening. Kennedy is 1-3 overall through seven starts with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. He has 35 strikeouts and 11 walks over 37.0 innings of work.

Orioles end skid

The Orioles put an end to their seven-game losing streak on Wednesday with the 5-3 victory. The win pushes Baltimore to 9-27 on the season and 6-11 at home. The Orioles are scoring 3.53 runs per game this season while allowing 5.69 per contest.

Chris Tillman gets the start for the Orioles on Thursday. Tillman is 1-5 through six starts with a 9.24 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP. He has pitched 25.1 innings and has 13 strikeouts with 14 walks. His last start saw him give up seven runs over one inning.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 2-8 in their last 10 Thursday games and 1-5 in their last six road games against a right-handed starter. However, they have won four straight following a loss.

Baltimore

The Orioles are 3-15 in their last 18 Game 3’s in a series. They also are 5-21 in their last 26 games against a starter with a WHIP over 1.30.

Prediction:

The Royals may have come up short on Wednesday, but I like them to get the win today with Kennedy on the mound. He has been strong for the Royals, posting a 2.92 ERA while Tillman sits at 9.24. Tillman isn’t a pitcher Baltimore can expect much from while Kennedy should be able to handle this below average Orioles lineup.

 

The Pick: Kansas City Royals -105
