Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals Free Pick – June 16, 2016
When: Thursday, June 16 – 8:15 PM EST
Where: Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
Odds: Tigers -115/Royals +105
Over/Under: 7.5 Runs
The Kansas City Royals are back in business and enter Thursday’s series-opener against the Detroit Tigers riding a five-game winning streak. They’ve won four of the past five meetings at Kauffman, and I like the Royals in this contest.
Danny Duffy (2-1, 2.94) will take the ball for KC. He’s done well since joining the rotation, and he recorded a season-high 10 strikeouts in six scoreless innings of three-hit ball against the White Sox his last time out. Duffy has posted a 3.09 ERA while limiting the Tigers to just a .206 batting average in previous meetings and we can note that the Tigers are 0-4 in their last four road games vs. a left-handed starter.
The Tigers turn to Justin Verlander (6-5, 3.77). The veteran has won back-to-back starts and he’s been solid all year. The Royals bats are heating up though and they scored nine runs in last night’s win against the Tribe. Salvador Perez is 13-for-28 with four blasts in his last seven games and an impressive 21-for-44 in previous meetings with Verlander.
Royals are 8-2 in their last 10 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15 and 7-1 in their last eight after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
