Orioles Betting Preview 

Baltimore moved to 19-9 after taking three of four from Detroit. The Orioles were sharp in the first month of action, and they’ll look to win their seventh straight series here. The Baltimore offense is scoring 4.95 runs per game, while batting .256, with a .335 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.29 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Jorge Mateo homered twice against the Tigers, and he leads the team in batting average (.347). Ryan Mountcastle produced two runs in the series finale versus Detroit, and he leads the O’s in RBI (21).

Tyler Wells (1-1, 2.79 ERA, 23 Ks) will get the ball for Baltimore. The second-year pitcher followed up his best outing of the season by earning his first winning decision last week versus Boston. Wells tossed a season-high seven strikeouts over 5.2 innings of work, and he’ll look to build on his last two appearances here versus a lackluster KC lineup.

Royals Betting Preview

Kansas City fell to 7-22 after dropping three of four to Minnesota. The Royals struggles in April were well-noted, and it's unlikely things will change here in May. The Kansas City offense is scoring 3.35 run s 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).  

Ryan Yarbrough (0-2, 7.62 ERA, 5 Ks) will begin the game for Kansas City. The sixth-year pitcher has made eight appearances this season, and despite suffering losses in his last two outings, he’s been serviceable. Yarbrough pitched four full innings versus the DBacks, and despite allowing just one run, he’d drop to 0-3 on the season. 

Baltimore vs Kansas City Trends

Baltimore is 13-11 against the spread this season, with a 13-10-1 over/under record. Kansas City is 13-10 ATS this year, with a 9-13-1 O/U record.  

Corey’s Free Pick

Baltimore looks like real threats to steal the AL East this season, while Kansas City has the look of a struggling college program. The Royals have been underwhelming at the plate, and this feel like another series the O’s will be able to overpower their opponents offensively in. Back Baltimore for game one at Kauffman this Tuesday.
