The Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals face off on Thursday in an American League showdown at Kauffman Stadium.
The Kansas City Royals have played decent to start the season and they are coming off two wins in a row against the Los Angeles Angels. On Wednesday it was the pitching that was strong as they were able to come away with the 6-1 victory. The pitching at times has been an issue so in this game they need the pitching to be strong again. Whit Merryfield has been the best player for the Royals so far this season hitting three home runs and driving in 11 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Toronto Blue Jays who have won two of their three games against the Yankees in their last series. On Wednesday, the Blue Jays put up five runs and that was enough to win by a run. Bo Bichette was the best player for the Blue Jays having three hits. Two runs and two RBI’s. On the season Bichette has put up four hits and driven in ten RBI’s.
On the mound for the Royals will be Jakob Junis who has gone seven innings so far this year giving up three hits total’s and zero runs.
Rangers are 18-43 in their last 61 road games. Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 games on astroturf. Rangers are 11-28 in their last 39 during game 4 of a series. Rays are 49-17 in their last 66 home games. Rays are 43-15 in their last 58 games on astroturf.
Unis is going to lock down in this game and that will be the difference in this game. Back the Royals to win this game on the money line. I also think this will be a low scoring game that stays under the total. Back the under to cash with ease in this game. I like both of these plays and both are worth betting by themselves.
