MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 25-52 in their last 77 games overall. Kansas City is 1-4 in the last five Sparkman starts.

Cleveland

The Indians are 4-0 in their last Tuesday games. Cleveland is 5-1 in its last six home games.

Prediction:

Cleveland has the definite pitching advantage here and a couple bats appear to be heating up such as Ramirez. The Royals have struggled on the road all season and I foresee another uphill battle here. Take the Indians at home behind what should be a strong Bieber outing.
