It is the middle game of a three-game series between the two teams. Gamblers that bet on MLB action may notice that the game is the 5th game of a six-game homestand for Texas.
MLB betting stats tell us that the Rangers are 11-7 versus the Royals the past two seasons and they are 6-3 at home. What is strange about this series is that Kansas City has actually outscored Texas 94-84 the past two seasons yet they are 7-11 in the 18 games as MLB betting stats indicate.
The Royals were competitive on the road a year ago going 37-44 against the MLB betting odds. What that meant for gamblers who took at shot and bet on MLB action with the Royals on the road is that they made money. Kansas City was an underdog most of the time in road games last year in MLB betting. Many MLB betting experts are predicting the Royals will be much improved this season but that remains to be seen. Kansas City still has a lot of holes in their lineup and the middle relief is very questionable which makes them a risk to gamblers who bet on MLB action.
Texas was nothing special at home last season going 40-41 in terms of MLB betting. What you see with the Rangers at home though is small MLB odds either way. The Rangers get respect being at home but they are rarely big favorites in MLB betting because they don’t have any dominant pitcher. When Kevin Millwood is your #1 starter you know your staff has some question marks. The Rangers can score though as they have a very good hitting lineup and that makes them a threat all the time in MLB betting.
The Royals and Rangers have combined to average almost 10 runs per game versus the MLB betting line in their meetings the past two years. What must be kept in mind is that 10 is sometimes a low number in Texas home games where an 11 or an 11.5 is not uncommon in MLB odds.
