Royals fall in opener

The Royals dropped the opener in the series on Thursday night, 7-2 at New York. The Royals are 31-71 overall and 16-34 on the road. Kansas City is putting up 3.60 runs per game this year while allowing 5.53 per contest.

Heath Fillmyer gets the start for the Royals this evening. He has started two games this season and appeared in a total of six. He carries an 0-1 record with a 2.82 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Fillmyer has 13 strikeouts and 10 walks over 22.1 innings of work.

Yankees in a slight funk

The Yankees got the win on Thursday night, but lost power hitter Aaron Judge for multiple weeks after he suffered a chip fracture in his wrist when he was hit by a pitch. New York is now 65-36 overall and 35-14 at home. The Yankees are scoring 5.19 runs per game this season while allowing 3.83 per contest.

C.C. Sabathia gets the start for the Yankees in the nightcap. He has started 18 games this season and has a 6-4 record with a 3.34 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Sabathia has pitched 100.0 innings on the season and has 77 strikeouts with 29 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals have won four straight Game 2’s of a series but they are just 16-36 in their last 52 road games.

New York

The Yankees have won 21 of their last 27 home games, but they have dropped their last four games after a win.

Prediction:

The Yankees shouldn’t have much problem in this game, as the Royals don’t have much hitting and Fillmyer doesn’t have much starting experience to work with. While he has good numbers in limited action, he is facing the best offense he has faced yet, in a short porch of New York. Look for the Yankees to cruise to a big win.

 

The Pick: New York Yankees -1.5 (-160)
