MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox have lost five straight road games, but they have won 9 of their last 13 series openers.

Kansas City

The Royals are 4-9 in their last 13 series openers and 16-41 in their last 57 games on grass.

Prediction:

The White Sox have won six of their last seven meetings with the Royals this season, but all but one win was at home. Nova has been a mess this year, but he actually pitched pretty well against Kansas City. Chicago has also won five of his last seven starts. The Royals have lost Bailey’s last four starts. He has given up four runs or more in three of his last four outings. KC just doesn’t have any momentum right now. The Royals don’t have hitting or pitching to rely on. Chicago has some top-level hitters. The Sox just need the bullpen to lock things up.

MLB Prediction: Chicago White Sox +115
