– Looking to bet on the Kansas City Royals? OddsShark takes a look at the defending World Series champions to outline where bettors can get a serious edge. Joe Osborne breaks down the ways to lay the wood on the Royals explaining, “With the 25-8 home record, good enough for the best home win percentage in baseball, KC is the only remaining team that doesn’t have double-digit losses at home. Simply saying to hammer their moneyline at home is an easy approach, but there’s more to it than that.
So far this season, they’re a perfect 8-0 at home following a loss at home. They’ve excelled in the opening game of a home series, going 9-2 in that spot. Also, they’ve been beating up on teams with losing records at home, posting an 8-2 record.” For the full breakdown read here.

Pick is for Friday June 24th.
“Lets see if we can continue our “over” magic after the 8-4 win on the Sox/Mariners game last week and ride another over with the Reds and Padres…
Colin Rea, in his first year as a full time starter, has now had 13 starts this season to prove himself in the big leagues, and has yet to really do so outside of a couple starts. One of them actually being his last time out going 6.1 only giving up 1 ER. Previous to that aforementioned start he had given up 26 runs in 6 starts. His home/splits are basically even but they add up to being subpar numbers. He is 3-3 with a 5.02 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and batters hitting a respectable .258 off him. The real issue has been his command as he has walked 29 batters and only struck out 54 hitters in 71.2 innings.
Rea will be opposed by rookie Cody Reed, who went 7 innings in his MLB debut last time out, giving up 4 ER on 7 hits, 3 BB’s, and had an impressive 9 K’s. Not a bad start, but I usually favor going against young pitchers who have not yet learned how to pitch efficiently and usually have pitch counts. Luckily for us, we got two of those going against each other tonight. The key will be to get to the Reds bullpen early as they are the worst in the major leagues. They hold a 6.01 ERA, which is over a full run higher than the next worst at 4.71. Not much further from them are the Padres, with a 4.41 ERA.
Padre bats are pretty hot having scored 41 runs in their last 7 games. Padres are also the 5th best hitting team against lefties at .279.
Overs are 6-1 for the Padres in their last 7 overall, 6 for their last 8 vs a lefty starter, and 37-34 overall. The Over is 40-26 for the Reds, third best in the majors.
We will go Reds/Padres over 9.5 total. Best of luck!”
Thanks Sam for the time as always, and make sure you give him a follow as he’s in the circle of trust.
