The Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Kaufmann Stadium. The Twins have won the first two games of this series.
Twins Betting Preview
The Twins knew they needed to improve their pitching this offseason, and so far that has really worked out well. Over the first two games, the Twins have given up only seven hits and zero runs. The offense hasn’t exactly broken out, but they have done enough to win the games. On Saturday the bright spot was Jose Miranda who finished with one run. Getting the start for the Twins will be Joe Ryan who has a lot of pressure on him this season. Last season he finished with a 13-8 record and an ERA of 3.55.
Royals Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is the Royals who are going through a rebuild, and it looks like it could be a painful one if the first two games were any indication. The pitching has been good so far, but the offense hasn’t been able to get anything going. The best offensive player on Saturday was Franmil Reyes and he finished with two walks. In this game, they need to find a way to get the offense going. On the mound for the Royals will be Brad Keller and last season he finished with a 6-14 record and an ERA of 5.09.
Twins vs Royals Trends
The Twins are 4-0 in Ryan’s last four starts. The over is 4-0-1 in Ryan's last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 3-0-1 in Twins last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400. The over is 7-2 in the Royals last nine games overall. The Royals are 2-9 in their last 11 games on grass.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Royals offense hasn’t found a whole lot of success and it’s not going to get any easier going against Joe Ryan. Ryan was a strong pitcher last season, and he’s going to have no issue locking down the Royals offense here. The Twins might only score four or five runs, but that will be enough for a comfortable victory. Back the Twins on the run line.
