Royals Betting Preview
Kansas City moved to 12-27 after taking three of four from Chicago. The Royals impressively defended home turf, and after winning four of their last five, they’ll look to steal a few in Milwaukee this weekend. The Kansas City offense is scoring 3.35 runs per game, while batting .240, with a .302 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.45 ERA, with a 1.44 WHIP. Vinnie Pasquantino had multiple hits in three of four games against Chicago, and he leads KC in batting (.298). Salvador Perez doubled twice in the series finale versus the Sox, and he leads the team in RBI (21).
Josh Taylor (0-0, 6.65 ERA, 16 Ks) will begin the game for Kansas City. The fourth-year reliever has made nine appearances this season, and allowed multiple runs in three of them. Taylor has eleven strikeouts in four road outings, while allowing just one run.
Brewers Betting Preview
Milwaukee moved to 20-17 after falling to Los Angeles. The Brewers have dropped three straight series to open the month of May, and they need this manageable matchup with KC to go well this weekend. The Milwaukee offense is 4.83 scoring runs per game, while batting .239, with a .314 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.74 ERA, with a 1.26 WHIP. Christian Yelich has recorded a hit in seven of the last nine games, and he leads the Brewers in hits (33) and runs (28). Rowdy Tellez and Willy Adames are tied for the team-lead in RBI (23), with the former leading the Brew Crew with ten home runs.
Corbin Burnes (3-2, 4.01 ERA, 19 Ks) will take the mound for Milwaukee. The ace of staff had a tough time in the Bay last weekend, giving up five runs in six innings to take his second loss of the season. Burnes has only surpassed five strikeouts once this season, and this home spot versus Kansas City will give him a chance to get back on track.
Kansas City vs Milwaukee Trends
Kansas City is 14-24 against the spread this season, with a 19-17-2 O/U record. Milwaukee is 17-20 ATS this year, with a 17-19-1 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Milwaukee has to capitalize on this series with Kansas City in general, but game one has to sway their way. The Brew Crew will send Corbin Burnes to the bump, and I think he turns things around, and delivers a strong outing. Friday will mark a bullpen day for the Royals, and the Brewers should be able to make them pay at home. This is a very manageable spot for a Milwaukee team that needs to stop the bleeding, so roll with them in game one,
