MLB: Minnesota Twins - Kansas City Royals
- Title : MLB: Minnesota Twins - Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals conclude a four-game series on the road at Target Field Monday against the Minnesota Twins. Kansas City has split the first two games of the series losing the opener 4-2 and winning on Saturday by the same score of 4-2. The Royals sit in the basement of the American League Central four games behind the division leading Twins.
Kansas City has lost 15 of the last 19 played on the road in Minnesota
Minnesota has the fourth-best team ERA in the majors at 3.51 and has a WHIP of 1.16.The Twins have eight saves and have allowed just 149 hits across 179.1 Innings pitched. Minnesota has not announced its starting pitcher for Monday's final game of the series, but Randy Dobnak is leading all Minnesota starters with an ERA of just 0.90 and Kenta Meada has an ERA of 2.66.
What about this game then? Well, Minnesota as previously mentioned has the 4-best team ERA in MLB and the total finished under this line in 10 of their last 11 played at home and in 7 of the last 8 head to head against Kansas City. The total has also finished under in 4 of Royals last 5 gamed and in 7 of the last 9 that Kansas City has played on the road so far. I have to say under 9,5 runs in this game!
I also think Minnesota win. They have won 15 of the last 19 at home against Kansas City.
My prediction: Under 9,5 Runs
