New York Yankees vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

I’m on the Royals here. It’s tough to go against the Yankees, but this is a bit of a quick turnaround with travel after Sunday night baseball while the Royals had the afternoon game and got to relax at home and come into this one fresh. Lugo’s also been a consistent arm for the Royals this season and the Royals have not only been one of the best home teams in baseball, but they’ve hit lefties really well for the better part of the season. I just think the value in this game is on Kansas City so give me the Royals in this one.
