Royals falling back
The Royals have lost three of their last four after dropping Monday’s series opener, 9-6. Kansas City now sits at 21-39 overall and 11-18 on the road. KC is putting up 4.03 runs per game this season while allowing 5.72 per game.
Brad Keller gets the start for the Royals on Tuesday. He has started just one game while appearing in 22. Keller has a 2.13 ERA and 1.11 WHIP this season through 25.1 innings of work. Keller has 16 strikeouts with eight walks this year.
Angels win series opener
The Angels opened the series with a 9-6 win on Monday for their third win in four games. They still aren’t a winning team at home, posting a 15-18 record in Los Angeles to go with a 33-28 record overall. The Angels are putting up 4.64 runs per game this season while allowing 4.10 per contest.
Andrew Heaney gets the start for the Angels on Tuesday night. He has posted a 2-4 record through nine starts this year and has a 3.66 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP. Heaney has pitched a total of 51.2 innings this year and has 54 strikeouts with 18 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Royals are just 3-10 in their last 13 against AL West opponents and 8-21 in their last 29 road games against a team with a winning record.
The Angels are 24-11 in their last 35 Tuesday games and 4-1 in their last five at homes. They also have won seven of their last 10 against a right-handed starter.
The Angels have been hard to trust at home, but I think they get another win tonight. The Royals are pitching an unproven starter tonight and will likely have to turn quickly to a bullpen that has been very shaky. Los Angeles has a pretty reliable arm with Heaney and they have the hitting and bullpen that KC doesn’t.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -190
