Cleveland Guardians vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

The Kansas City Royals are playing the better ball right now, they're at home, and they have the pitching edge with Cole Ragans on the mound. However, Tanner Bibee has been solid this month, allowing just 7 runs in his last 22.1 innings, and the Cleveland Guardians are still the most profitable team for MLB bettors. There's value with the Guardians in the underdog role, given how they make bettors more money than any other team. I'm not freaking out over a few losses. Give me the Guardians and the more favorable price.
