The Cleveland Guardians and Kansas City Royals face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Kaufmann Stadium.
The Royals come into this game with a 55-80 record overall and they have won two games in a row. On Saturday the offense had a big game putting up 12 runs and that was enough to secure the victory. The Royals offense overall is averaging 3.97 runs per game which is 24th in the league. Bobby Witt is having a big season hitting 20 home runs and driving in 70 RBIs. In this game the Royals need the bats to be good early.
The Guardians come into this game with a 68-64 record overall and they have lost five games in a row. The Guardians are now tied at the top of the American League Central with the Minnesota Twins, and they can't keep losing these games. The Guardians offense overall hasn’t been good enough this season and they are averaging 4.15 runs per game is 22nd in the league. For a team that wants to make the playoffs, the offense hasn’t been good enough. Jose Ramirez has hit 26 home runs and driven in 106 RBIs.
On the mound for the Guardians will be Triston McKenzie who sits with a 9-11 record and an ERA of 3.18. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went five innings giving up five hits and two runs.
The Guardians are 4-0 in McKenzie’s last four starts against the American League Central. The Guardians are 1-4 in McKenzie’s last five Monday starts. The under is 5-0 in McKenzie’s last five starts. The under is 4-0 in McKenzie’s last four starts on grass.
The Guardians have won McKenzie’s last four starts against the American League Central, and I expect him to have another strong start here. I also don’t trust the Guardians offense, and they are going to struggle to score in this game against the Royals. Look for both teams to struggle to score here, and the under is going cash here. It wouldn't shock me if this game ended 1-0 or 2-1.
