Top MLB Betting Odds & Picks for Athletics vs. Royals

We’ll rarely see the Kansas City Royals as favorites. In today’s game, the Royals are -175 favorites, at home, against the Oakland Athletics.

That’s pretty telling.

The Athletics will pitch rookie left-hander Jared Koenig, who has a 7.71 xFIP in the last 30 days. Koenig has walked more batters in that same time frame than he’s struck out.

Today, he’ll take on a Royals lineup that should have eight righties in the lineup, including four bats that have heated up lately against lefties in the middle of the order. Those bats include Bobby Witt Jr., Hunter Dozier, Carlos Santana, and Michael A. Taylor, who have all hit an above-average ISO in the last 30 days against lefties.

Meanwhile, Brad Keller will take the mound for the Royals. He has a 4.81 xFIP and isn’t known for high strikeouts. But he’s still inducing 47.6% of ground balls when balls are hit in play. Plus, the Athletics are hitting just a .118 ISO and wOBA of .269 against righties in the last 30 days with 46.7% of ground balls of their own with the projected lineup against righties.

I’ll take the Royals on the run line.
