Strong Pitching Making Royals a Good Bet

The Kansas City Royals are getting by thanks to some strong pitching right now, and Royals backers will be hoping that trend continues when they go for a sweep of their three-game set against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 home games.
  • The UNDER is 3-0-1 in the Royals last 4 games.
  • The Royals are 4-0 in Ventura's last 4 starts vs. the White Sox.

K.C. is slated to send Yordano Ventura to the bump, while the ChiSox will counter with Carlos Rodon. Ventura (4-2, 4.85 ERA) aims for his third straight triumph, but he’s allowed seven runs and 13 hits in his last two games against the Yankees and Red Sox. Rodon (1-4, 4.73) is 0-3 in his last six starts after settling for a no-decision against Houston Tuesday. Rodon’s lone win this year came on April 13 against the lowly Minnesota Twins.

The White Sox have not been able to get the job done at the plate. Chicago has scored three runs or fewer in each of their last four games. As a result, the Pale Hose have lost eight of their last 10.
