St. Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals Consensus Free Pick – June 27, 2016
Four of our handicappers here at ProfessionalSportPicks.com believe that the St. Louis Cardinals will defeat the Kansas City Royals Monday night.
Jimmy Boyd: “St Louis is showing some great value here as a small road dog against the Royals. The Cardinals avoided getting swept in Seattle with a 11-6 win on Sunday, where they piled on 17 hits. The win came against Mariners’ lefty starter James Paxton. St Louis is averaging 5.4 runs/game against left-handed starters this season and 6.1 runs/game on the road. They face another southpaw today, as the Royals send out Danny Duffy.”
Scott Rickenbach: “The Royals are off a 6-1 win yesterday but had previously lost 4 straight games. The Cardinals are also off of a win yesterday and that was their 4th in their last 6 games as they snapped a mini two-game skid. With the Cards looking to wrap up an 8-game road trip the right way as they start this two-game mini-series at Kansas City, I feel we are getting excellent line value here as they take on a slumping Royals team that has lost 4 of 5.”
Marc Lawrence: “Edges – Cardinals: Adam Wainwright 26-11 team starts at night last three seasons. Royals: 6-14 last 20 games as a host in this series; and 0-4 last four overall games in this series. With Wainwright in fine current form with team start wins in 5 of his last 7 starts with a 2.72 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP, we recommend a 1* play on St. Louis.”
Ray Monohan: “St. Louis and Kansas City renew their rivalry as the two teams go at it on Monday night in Kansas City. The Cardinals come into this one very solid on the road. They hold the 2nd best road record in the MLB at 24-12 and come in off a performance where they had 13 extra base hits.”
