Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers
Thursday, September 20, 2018 7:10 PM
Play: Money Line: -143 Detroit Tigers
The Royals opened their roadtrip by getting swept against the Pirates as all three games were decided by just one run including identical 2-1 losses the last two games. The dreadful season is almost over for Kansas City which has the second worst record in baseball at 52-100 including a 22-53 record on the road. This includes a 12-37 record in road games after scoring one run or less. The Tigers were also swept in their most recent series as the Twins took all three games to open the week which extended their home losing streak to seven games. This includes an 8-2 loss yesterday and Detroit has won 12 of 20 games this season after a loss by six or more runs. One of the pleasant parts of the rotation has been Matthew Boyd as he has quietly been pitching outstanding. He has a 4.08 ERA which seems average but it comes with a 1.09 WHIP which is tied for sixth best in the American League. He has been even better at home as he has a 2.44 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 13 starts and the Tigers are a perfect 8-0 in his eight home games when working on five or six days of rest. Meanwhile, the Royals are 0-6 in their last six road games against left-handed starters. Kansas City counters with Jorge Lopez who had a near perfect game through eight innings against Minnesota two starts back but regressed after that against the same Twins team. He actually got hurt in that last outing as he has to leave with a rib injury so he might be 100 percent healthy on top of it. Here, we play against underdogs after two straight losses by two runs or less going up against an opponent after a loss by six runs or more. This situation is 55-18 (75.3 percent) since 1997.
