MLB Las Vegas Odds & Free Sports Picks: New York Yankees vs Kansas City Royals

Yankees: 24-13 (11-7 V)
Royals: 16-23 (11-11 H)
When: 8:15 PM ET, Thursday, May 18, 2017
Where: Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

The New York Yankees will attempt to continue their winning form as they get ready to wrap up a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals with the finale set to be contested Thursday night at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The Yankees’ offense keeps on flourishing with yet another double-digit outburst on Wednesday.

It was their seventh 10+ runs game of the season as they teed-off on Jason Vargas who before entering the game was the owner of the best ERA in baseball. The Yankees sent Vargas to the showers after just 4 innings not before scoring six runs on seven hits in an 11-7 victory for their second straight against the Royals.

New York padded its lead in the AL East to 1.5 games over Baltimore, losers last night in Detroit. The Royals entered this series on the heels of a four-game winning streak which tied a season best. Despite a horrible start in their season, the Royals are still in the thick of things in the AL Central as they trail Minnesota by just 5 games.

LH Jordan Montgomery (2-2, 4.19 ERA) gets the call in the finale against Kansas City while LH Danny Duffy (2-3, 3.38 ERA) is set to throw the game’s first pitch for the Royals.

Montgomery, who enjoyed his longest career stint on the mound in a win against the Cubs to start the new month, was not as fortunate in his most recent outing against Houston as he gave up a season-high 4 runs on 8 hits in six innings en route to his second loss of the year last Friday. The rookie has given the Yankees something to think about, in what has been a fruitful rapport, with the 24-year old exceeding expectations. Montgomery faces the Royals for the first time in his career.

Despite the Royals’ dismal start to the season, Duffy was impervious to his team’s miseries as he posted 4 straight quality starts to begin the year with 2 wins and a 1.32 ERA. However, he followed that with two forgettable outings when he allowed a combined 12 runs in 9 2/3 innings and two losses. The 28-year old reverted to his old form by garnering two more quality starts but was a victim of the Royals’ offensive powerlessness. The Californian is 1-2 with an 8.50 ERA in 5 career starts against the Yankees.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Yankees favorites at 125-moneyline with the total sitting at 8½.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Yankees were favored by -1½ (+130)
