For this matchup, we predict that the Kansas City Royals will come out on top. Here's why:

Brady Singer has been outstanding for the Royals this season, boasting a 2.63 ERA and a WHIP of 1.12. His ability to keep opposing hitters in check will be crucial against the Twins. Meanwhile, Chris Paddack, with a 4.39 ERA and a WHIP of 1.39, has shown vulnerability, which the Royals' lineup, led by Salvador Perez, can exploit.

Salvador Perez is in excellent form, leading the team with a .322 batting average and 39 RBIs. His consistent offensive production provides a reliable source of runs for Kansas City. Additionally, the Royals have shown resilience and the ability to bounce back, which will be essential in this game.

Moreover, Kansas City's overall team performance, with a .251 batting average and solid pitching stats (3.39 ERA, 1.23 WHIP), gives them an edge over Minnesota's .233 team batting average and higher team ERA of 4.10. The Royals have the tools to capitalize on the Twins' weaknesses and secure a win.

Pick: Kansas City Royals (+105)
