Cleveland Guardians vs Kansas City Royals – Expert Analysis & Prediction
The Cleveland Guardians are set to take on the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium on June 27, 2023, at 5:10 PM. In this matchup, the Guardians are slight favorites, but the main focus here will be on the over/under betting line set at 9 runs.
Cleveland Guardians – Team Insight
Gavin Williams will be on the mound for the Guardians. The right-handed pitcher is yet to record a win or loss but has an alarming 6.35 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 5.2 innings. His limited innings with high ERA suggest that he might have difficulties against the Royals' lineup.
For the Guardians, Jose Ramirez has been their star batter with a .293 batting average, 12 home runs, and 46 RBIs. Josh Naylor has also been impressive with 57 RBIs and a .291 batting average.
Adam Scott is listed as day-to-day for the Guardians, while Cal Quantrill is on the 15-Day IL.
Kansas City Royals – Team Insight
For the Royals, Brady Singer will be taking the mound. The right-hander holds a 4-7 record with a very high 6.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 76.2 innings. Like Williams, Singer has had a difficult season and could give up a number of runs in this matchup.
Salvador Perez is the Royals’ standout batter, with 15 home runs and 39 RBIs, along with a .263 batting average.
The Royals have Amir Garrett and Matt Beaty on the 15-Day and 7-Day IL, respectively, and Ryan Yarbrough on the 60-Day IL.
Both pitchers, Gavin Williams and Brady Singer, have very high ERAs, which means there's a good chance they could both give up several runs. The Guardians and Royals have hitters who can capitalize on mistakes, like Jose Ramirez and Salvador Perez.
Considering the pitchers' struggles and the hitters' potential, it's highly probable that there will be a high-scoring game. Therefore, betting on over 9 runs in this matchup is the best bet for bettors looking for an opportunity to win.
Pick: Over 9 runs
