Kansas City Royals Fantasy Spin

Adelberto Mondesi went 1-for-3 with a single, a walk, and two stolen bases Friday against the Rangers. Mondesi is now up to 20 steals on the year, which leads the majors by a significant margin. Three players (Jose Ramirez, Mallex Smith, and Tim Anderson) are tied for second with 14 each.

Texas Rangers Fantasy Spin

Joey Gallo smoked a go-ahead grand slam in Friday’s 6-2 victory over the Royals. The Rangers tied things up before Gallo crushed one to straight-away center field at an estimated 457 feet. It stood up as the decisive blow in the ballgame. Gallo now has 16 homers and 39 RBI through 50 games while posting a .272/.415/.633 batting line. If he can maintain even a decent batting average, we’re talking about a fantasy stud here.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 2-5 in Bailey’s last seven starts.

Texas

The Rangers are a perfect 4-0 in Lynn’s last four outings at home.

Prediction:

The under is now 36-10-6 in the last 52 meetings between these two teams and is 17-5-4 in the last 26 meetings in Arlington. The under is also 4-1 in the Royals’ last five games overall and is 4-1 in their last five road contests. On the other side, the under cashed in 10 of the Rangers’ last 14 games overall and is a perfect 4-0 in their last four home games.

The Pick: Royals/Rangers under 11
