MLB odds at the online sportsbook on Thursday include a matchup in Kansas City as the Royals host the Arizona Diamondbacks.
It is the last of a three-game series between the two teams. MLB betting odds in this series have been all about the starting pitchers as the Royals are just not very good unless Zack Grienke is on the mound.
MLB odds trends tell us that the teams have split their last ten meetings. They have not played in Kansas City since 2003 though. Last year they played three games in Arizona and the Royals won two of the three versus the online betting odds. They also played three games at Arizona in 2005 and the Royals won two of those three versus the MLB betting odds. The games in Kansas City in 2003 went Arizona’s way as the Diamondbacks won two of the three versus the MLB odds.
Arizona has held their own this season on the road versus the MLB odds. The Diamondbacks have actually played better on the road than at home which is usually not good news. Having a losing record at home versus the MLB odds is just one reason that Arizona is well behind in the National League West. Another reason that Arizona is struggling is a pitching staff that is ranked in the bottom third of the league as MLB odds stats show. Arizona’s offense is even worse, ranking in the bottom five as MLB betting odds statistics show.
Kansas City has been around .500 at home this season versus the MLB odds and that is nothing special but it sure beats their rotten road record. At least at home the Royals have been competitive versus the MLB odds. The Royals have a pitching staff led by Grienke. The problem for Kansas City in MLB odds is a rotten offense that rarely puts up many runs. The Royals are right near the bottom of the league in runs scored as MLB odds numbers show.
Six of the last seven games between the two teams have gone over the online betting odds at the online sportsbook. Keep in mind that though that six of those seven games were played in Arizona as MLB betting odds info tells us.
