Royals Betting Preview

Kansas City fell to 4-15 after being swept by Texas. The Royals endured their second straight sweep, and after dropping nine of their last ten, this upcoming ten-game road trip could put a nail in their season early. The Kansas City offense is scoring 3.35 runs per game, while batting .208, with a .264 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.46 ERA, with a 1.44 WHIP. Vinnie Pasquantino has recorded a hit in six of the last eight games, and he leads KC in batting at .270. Salvador Perez has doubled in back-to-back games and he leads the team in RBI (7).  

Taylor Clarke (1-0, 6.75 ERA, 12 Ks) will make the bullpen start for Kansas City. The fifth-year pitcher was precise in six appearances prior to his last outing versus Texas last week, which saw him allow three runs in just one inning.

Angels Betting Preview 

Los Angeles moved to 9-10 after dropping two of three to New York in the Bronx. The Angels have only won two of their last seven games, so look for them to capitalize on their opponent here at home this weekend. The LAA offense is scoring 5.63 runs per game, while batting .238, with a .333 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.52 ERA, with a 1.26 WHIP. Mike Trout looks great early this season, and after recording multiple hits in three of the last five games, he leads LAA in batting (.302). Hunter Renfroe carries a four-game hit streak into this series, and he’s produced a team-high 16 RBI. 

Shohei Ohtani (2-0, 0.86 ERA, 27 Ks) will get the ball for Los Angeles. The two-way superstar has been in full control on the mound this season, delivering three straight quality starts prior to the weather-impacted Boston matchup. Ohtani struck out six over seven shutout innings in his lone home start this season. Shotime is also hitting .269, with eleven RBI on the year.

Kansas City vs Anaheim Trends

KC is 5-14 against the spread this season, with a 11-7-1 over/under record. LAA is 8-11 ATS this year, with a 8-9-2 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Angel Stadium should be in for a treat and a possible masterclass with Shohei Ohtani set to face the worst team in the majors. LAA has to emphasize winning when they trot out Ohtani this season, so look for them to take care of business and avoid any disaster here. Back the Angels in game one Friday night.
