Royals get shutout

The Royals dropped their second straight in this series on Tuesday, losing 1-0 to the Angels. Kansas City now sits at 21-40 overall and 11-19 on the road. KC is putting up 3.97 runs per game this season while allowing 5.64 per game.

Ian Kennedy takes the mound for the Royals tonight. He has started 12 games this season and has a 1-6 record with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. Kennedy has pitched a total of 60.2 innings this season and has 57 strikeouts with 22 walks.

Angels win series opener

The Angels have won their third straight with Tuesday’s 1-0 victory. They have won four of their last five, allowing just 10 runs over the five games with two shutouts. The Angels are 34-28 overall with a 16-18 record in Los Angeles. The Angels are putting up 4.58 runs per game this season while allowing 4.03 per contest.

Los Angeles hands the ball over to Shohei Ohtani tonight. He has started eight games this season and has a 4-1 record with a 3.18 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. Ohtani has pitched a total of 45.1 innings this season and has 57 strikeouts with 17 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are just 1-4 in their last five road games and they are 7-20 in Kennedy’s last 27 starts against a team with a winning record.

Los Angeles

The Angels have won Ohtani’s last four starts when on six days of rest. They also have won five of their last six at home despite their losing record at home on the season.

Prediction:

The Angels are the better team and they get to face a Kansas City team that has gone quiet at the plate once again. The Royals don’t have the pitching to play in low-scoring games, so I don’t see them being able to contend with Los Angeles. I like the Angels to ride Ohtani to another win.

 

The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -240
