Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers Betting Odds & Picks: August 16th 2009
Take the Kansas City Royals on the Moneyline, This pick falls into one of my top MLB systems and the Royals have the better pitcher on the mound here Sunday afternoon. Kyle Davies (4-8, 6.11 ERA) has pitched solid on the road this season with an ERA of just 3.09 over 7 starts and Armando Galarraga (6-10, 5.23 ERA) has struggled at home with an ERA of 4.59 over 12 starts. This is Galarraga’s first start since he lasted just 5 innings at home against the Minnesota Twins on August.7 where he walked 5 batters while giving up 8 hits. Davies pitched solid in his last start which was on the road against the Twins where he allowed just 5 hits and 1 earned run over 5 innings. Davies has allowed just 29 hits over 43.7 innings on the road this season and I look for a strong outing by him Sunday afternoon. The Tigers are just 1-5 in Galarraga’s last 6 starts and they are also just 1-4 in his last 5 starts as a home favorite. Take the Kansas City Royals at a very good price as my MLB Free Play for Sunday afternoon.
