MLB betting odds on Thursday should be close as the Kansas City Royals host the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox are trying to stay within striking distance of the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central while the Royals are trying to stay out of last place. Gamblers that make a MLB bet might look to Kansas City simply because they are at home but going with the Royals at anytime is risky.
MLB betting trends are somewhat split on this matchup. The White Sox have won 11 of the last 20 against the Royals and they have split the last 10 in Kansas City. This is the first game of a four-game weekend series between the two teams. The Royals won two games at home against the White Sox back in early May but they were swept in late May as MLB betting statistics show. The White Sox won 7-5, 5-3 and 11-2 as MLB bet results tell us.
Chicago has struggled at home this season but on the road they have been right around .500 in MLB betting. The White Sox have a pitching staff that ranks in the Top 10 in the league as MLB bet numbers show but their hitting is struggling. They are still in the bottom third of the league as MLB betting numbers indicate and that is a major problem for Chicago. They may need to make a trade to stay in the race in the American League Central.
Kansas City started the season strongly in MLB betting but they have reverted back to the old Royals again. They have a pathetic lineup and a pitching staff that is inconsistent other than Zack Grienke. The Royals, even with Grienke, are in the bottom half of the league in runs allowed as MLB betting numbers indicate. The offense has very few legitimate threats and they have to scratch out runs. It is tough to win games in MLB betting when your leading home run hitter is Miguel Olivo.
Wagering on the over in MLB betting at the sportsbook has been the way to go when these teams meet in Kansas City. Six of the last ten games between the two have gone over the MLB betting total at the sports book.
