Royals can’t produce runs
Though Kansas City is coming off a 2-0 win over the Angels, the Royals are still a mess at the plate. They have been held to 3 runs or less in seven straight games. Kansas City is now 24-54 overall and 13-25 on the road. The Royals are averaging just 3.55 runs per game at the plate while giving up 5.46 per contest.
Jakob Junis is getting the start for the Royals this evening. He has pitched in 15 games this season and has a 5-8 record with a 4.43 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Junis has pitched a total of 91.1 innings this year and has 83 strikeouts with 24 walks.
Brewers lose two straight
The Brewers suffered a pair of losses to the Cardinals at home this past weekend. Milwaukee is now 45-32 overall and 23-16 at home. The Brewers are putting up 4.34 runs per game on offense while allowing 3.68 per contest.
Freddy Peralta is getting the start for the Brewers tonight. He has started just three games this season and has a 2-0 record with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP. Peralta has pitched 15.2 innings and has 25 strikeouts with eight walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Royals are just 2-8 in their last 10 road games and they also have lost seven of their last nine series openers.
The Brewers have won 21 of their last 31 home games and they are 5-2 in their last seven games following an off day.
Peralta has went scoreless in two of his three starts and now he gets to face a Kansas City lineup that has been a disaster at the plate. Junis has given up at least three runs in five straight starts, including six in two of them. It’s hard enough for KC to score three runs on offense, so Junis isn’t likely to get a win tonight.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -220
