I’m on the Royals here. I get the allure of backing Tarik Skubal here as Skubal’s been elite this season, especially on the road with an ERA around one. However, the Tigers have faced a lot of right-handed pitching in his starts, and in the month of May, the Tigers’ numbers against lefties have not been as good, in the bottom-5 in batting average, team OPS and isolated power. The Royals on the other hand, have been really good against lefties, and we’ve seen when Cole Ragans is on his game, he can be ace-level and be the ace-type pitcher that he was expected to be coming into the season. The Royals also remain the most profitable home team in baseball this season and I think we’re getting value with a line like this. Give me the Royals.

Chris’s Pick Kansas City Royals: +100
