Angels Favorites Over The Royals

Normally when a slumping team takes on a team with one of the best records in baseball, the team with the best record would have the better odds of winning. However, that assumption would be wrong in the case of the Los Angeles Angels taking on the Kansas City Royals tonight.

The Angels are on a three game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Royals are 6-4 over their last ten games and sit atop the AL Central. Regardless, the Angels are the favorites tonight with a moneyline at -124 over at Bovada. To bet on the Royals is a +114.

The Angels as favorites is also strange because they will be visiting Kansas City. The Angels have the second works road game record in the American League.

The sports books seem to think this will come down to a pitching match. The Royals will be starting Jeremy Guthrie who is statistically one of the worst pitchers in the MLB. The Angels will send Garret Richards to the mound.

Guthrie has a 5.84 ERA, the highest in the AL, and has allowed opponents to hit .320. He has given up six or more runs in his last two games.

When Guthrie is on the mound the Royals hae relied on their stellar offense to make up for it. In their last game for example, the Chicago White Sox scored 8 runs. Kansas City responded with 13.

With Guthrie on the mound the 7.5 total is likely to go over.
