Major League Baseball Betting Lines: Royals vs. Astros

Kansas City Royals: Looking to regain early season form

After a progressive April, that the saw Kansas City roll out a 14-10 record, the Royals have gone 6-10 during the month of May. Always a team to give their fans a faint hope early in the season, only to crash and burn, this Kansas City club is one of the better ones in recent years – comparatively speaking. The Royals own the ninth best team batting average (.262) in the Majors. Though it’s not our nature to invest in Donk versus Donk battles, Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie (5-1 ERA 2.82) will be the difference in this contest tonight.

Hosuton Astros: Continue on their historic run of record setting MLB futility

Betting against the Astros has paid huge dividends during the first quarter of the 2013 MLB regular season. Already 16 games out of first place in the American League West, Houston has problems. The Astros hit the regular season quarter pole with a 10-30 record. Those numbers put Houston on a pace that would match the New York Mets modern day futility mark of 40-120 set in 1962. Digging deeper, Houston hitters have struck out 426 times in 44 games and their pitching staff owns a Major League worst 5.49 earned run average.
