The Kansas City Royals will head down to Austin to begin a three-game series with the Texas Rangers this Monday night from Globe Life Field. Texas won four of six meetings in 2022.
Royals Betting Preview
Kansas City moved to 3-6 after defeating San Francisco. The Royals led for most of the contest, but they’d let the Giants sneak away in the eighth and win by two, 3-1. The Kansas City offense is scoring 3.00 runs per game, while batting .184, with a .255 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.74 ERA, with a 1.35 WHIP. Salvador Perez has recorded a hit in eight of nine games this season, and he homered twice against San Francisco.
Zack Grienke (0-2, 2.38 ERA, 8 Ks) will start for Kansas City. The ageless wonder has come out with some stingy stuff early on despite the 0-2 record. Grienke contained Minnesota on Opening Day, before bottling up a talented Toronto lineup, and holding them to one run in six innings of work.
Rangers Betting Preview
Texas moved to 5-4 after defeating Chicago at Wrigley Field. The Rangers pulled away in the sixth inning, and cruised to a six-run win, 8-2. The Texas offense is scoring 5.22 runs per game, while batting .242, with a .306 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.65 ERA, with a 1.23 WHIP. Corey Seager doubled in all three games against the Cubs, and he’s first on the team in batting average at .276. Nathaniel Lowe is carrying a five game hit-streak into this series, and he’s first on the team in RBI (7).
Andrew Heaney (0-1, 23.63 ERA, 2 Ks) will get the ball for Texas here. The eleventh-year pitcher got torched in his Rangers debut, giving up seven runs in less than three innings of work against the Orioles. Heaney should be able to get back on track versus KC, but he’s been volatile throughout his career.
Kansas City vs Texas Trends
Kansas City is 3-7 against the spread this season, with a 4-6 over/under record. Texas is 4-5 ATS this year, with a 5-4 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
Kansas City comes into an interesting spot Monday evening. At an eye’s glance, the Royals hold the advantage on the mound with Zack Grienke taking the bump, but the veteran pitcher has been noticeably worse on the road on the back half of his career. Andrew Heaney isn’t sturdy on the mound himself, and I think these lineups may find success in this one, enough to reflect on the scoreboard. Take the over for this AL contest.
