The Royals are putting up 4.27 runs per game this season while hitting .245 as a team. KC is leading the league in stolen bases right now with 78. On the mound, KC has a 4.93 team ERA and a 1.43 team WHIP. Jorge Soler is leading the team with 17 doubles, 21 home runs and 53 RBI. Adalberto Mondesi is adding 16 doubles, 44 RBI and 27 stolen bases.
Blue Jays drop third straight
Toronto has lost three straight games to the Yankees coming into this weekend. The Jays are 29-52 on the season, 13-25 at home and 40-38 with the over. Sean Reid-Foley gets the start for the Blue Jays tonight. He is 0-1 on the season with a 6.75 ERA.

MLB Betting Trends
The Royals are 19-47 in their last 66 road games and 1-9 in their last 10 games on astroturf.
The Blue Jays are 1-7 in their last eight home games and 1-11 in their last 12 series openers.
Reid-Foley has appeared in just two games this year and has only logged four innings. It’s pretty unclear of what he is going to bring to the table, but he has struggled with walks thus far. Duffy isn’t great, but he is pretty steady at keeping Kansas City in most games. I trust Duffy more than I trust Reid-Foley. Given the walks Foley has, and KC’s ability to steal bases, I think the Royals can manufacture runs and get the win.
MLB Prediction: Kansas City Royals -105
