Today’s matchup is between the Minnesota Twins (22-34) and the Kansas City Royals (28-26). The Twins have won 1 of their last 5 games & the Royals have won 4 of their last 5 games.

The Twins are starting Matt Shoemaker (RHP), on the mound who is 2-6 on the season pitching a 5.90 ERA, 5.66 FIP, .348 wOBA, K% of 14.7%, BB% of 8.5%, 88.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.43 WHIP in 50.1 innings pitched.

The Royals are starting Brad Keller (RHP), who is 5-4 on the season with a 5.68 ERA, 4.77 FIP, .374 wOBA, K% of 19.2%, BB% of 10.4%, 91.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.74 WHIP in 50.2 innings pitched.

The Twins are 28th in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Royals are 20th.

On the hitting side, the Twins have a .321 wOBA and a .315 OBP. The Royals have a .303 wOBA and a .305 OBP. The Twins have 75 HRs this season while the Royals have 51 HRs.

With 2 bad starting pitchers on the mound, I don't have any interest in betting the line but over 9.5 runs could be a decent play.
