Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 4/16/2022


The Royals dropped four straight matches after starting the season with two straight wins. The Royals went 2 for 9 with runners in scoring position Thursday, with both scores coming on RBI singles in the fourth inning. With a 3.5-run-per-game average and a .208 team batting average, the Royals rank 23rd in MLB.


With two of the team’s 4 home runs, Salvador Perez tops the way. Perez is returning from a fantastic 2021 season, during which he set an MLB record with 48 home runs by a catcher. Andrew Benintendi has a .381 batting average and four RBI to lead the club.


Kansas City gave up an MLB-worst 6.3 runs per game, and opponents have a .303 batting average against them. Kris Bubic will take the stage on Saturday. Bubic struggled in his first appearance of the season, giving up five runs in only two-thirds of an inning in a 17-3 defeat to the Guardians on Sunday. Bubic finished 6-7 with a 4.43 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 29 games and 20 starts last season.


  • The Kansas City Royals are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Kansas City’s last 6 matches against Detroit.
  • Kansas City is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches at home.

Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Kansas City Royals. After a terrible debut in 2022, Kris Bubic should be able to rebound in this game.


Bubic pitched four innings against the Tigers last year and went 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA. Matt Manning, on the other hand, should experience some regression. The 24-year-old right-hander pitched well against Boston earlier this week at Comerica Park, but he also demonstrated that he can rely on the road.


Manning went 1-4 with a 6.63 ERA in eight road starts last season. The Royals won five of their previous seven meetings against the Tigers. The Kansas City Royals will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
