Kansas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox Betting Odds
Kansas City Royals
The Royals walk into tonight’s action sporting a 41-74 record that is a perfect reflection of the type of season they’re having. Unsurprisingly, that mediocre record ranks Kansas City 4th overall in the AL Central. At the present time, the Minnesota Twins lead the division and own a 30-game lead over Kansas City. With this in mind, it’s clear the Royals have no hope of climbing the divisional ladder. Additionally, it’s clear that KC has zero hopes of making the postseason. Nevertheless, they’re still sending Glenn Sparkman to the mound this Wednesday evening. Sparkman enters this contest with a meager 3-7 record as well as a 5.58 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Whit Merrifield (12 HR, 55 RBI, .301 BA), Jorge Soler (31 HR, 79 RBI, .253 BA), and Alex Gordon (11 HR, 60 RBI, .271 BA).
Boston Red Sox
The Bo Sox enter tonight’s action flashing a 60-56 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the AL East. At the present time, the New York Yankees lead the division and own a 15 ½ game lead over Boston. Although there’s no denying that Boston is struggling at the moment, their playoff hopes are still very much alive. All Boston needs to do is rebound at home this evening and build off that momentum in the coming days. The man tasked with turning this ship around is none other than LHP Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez enters tonight’s action sporting a 13-5 record as well as a 4.19 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Rafael Devers (23 HR, 87 RBI, .321 BA), Mookie Betts (19 HR, 59 RBI, .280 BA), and Xander Bogaerts (25 HR, 85 RBI, .307 BA).
