MLB betting odds are very close on the game between the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals on Monday.
The Royals are beginning a 7-game homestand but they have been nothing special at home this season at 19-20. The Twins though have struggled on the road which makes taking them here with a MLB bet a bit risky.
MLB betting stats do favor the Twins in this series. They have won 12 of the last 20 games overall against the Royals and they are 7-3 in the last 10 games at Kansas City.
The pitching matchup in this MLB betting game should be a good one as Nick Blackburn gets the call for the Twins while the Royals send Luke Hochevar. Blackburn has pitched two straight complete games but the last one was a loss in MLB betting. He gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth to the Brewers and lost. He has been very good against the Royals in two starts going 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA as MLB betting stats show.
Hochevar went seven innings against the Astros in his last start allowing only two runs. In his last four starts he has a 2-1 record with a 3.71 ERA as MLB betting statistics tell us.
Betting the under has been slightly profitable in this MLB betting series. Six of the last ten games at Kansas City have gone under the MLB bet total.
The Royals this season have been very poor offensively and inconsistent with their pitching. They rank 26th in the league in runs scored as MLB betting number show. Their ERA is better, ranking in the Top 20 but that is only because of Zack Grienke. When he is not on the mound the Royals tend to struggle. Kansas City has been stronger at home than on the road but they are still under .500 at home which makes them a poor play in MLB betting at the online sportsbook when they are laying money.
Minnesota has been a lot better at home than on the road as MLB bet number show. The Twins have struggled on the road for most of the season which is somewhat surprising considering the Twins have some decent numbers. They are right around the Top 10 in offense as MLB betting stats show and their pitching has potential.
