Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals 5/19/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago White Sox will meet with the Kansas City Royals in MLB action in Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas, on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at 2:10 PM ET. This year, Chicago was one of the most erratic teams in baseball. Six of its first eight matches were won before losing ten of its next eleven.

 

At the start of May, the White Sox went on a six-game unbeaten run, but they then lost four of their next six matches. They won the first two games of this five-game series in Kansas City before losing the nightcap of Tuesday’s doubleheader.

 

Chicago is 2.5 matches behind Minnesota in the American League Central heading into Wednesday’s games. Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) and Yermin Mercedes (catcher) are now sidelined.

 

They are hitting .227 through 36 matches, which ranks them 21st in the majors. Tim Anderson, the shortstop, is off to another strong start, batting .328 with 42 hits.

 

Luis Robert, the squad’s center fielder, is hitting .296 and leading the team with five home runs. They’ll go up against a Kansas City pitching staff that ranks 26th in the league with a 4.49 ERA.

 

On Thursday, Chicago will start Vince Velasquez. He’s returning from a poor outing against the Yankees where he gave up seven runs on eight hits in five innings.

 

  • The total went Under in 5-0 of the White Sox’s last 5 matches overall.
  • The total went Under in 4-0-1 of the White Sox’s last 5 matches as a road favorite.
  • The total went Under in 5-0 of the White Sox’s last 5 during game 5 of a series.

Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 5/19/2022

 

This year, Kansas City was unable to string together wins consistently. Before Wednesday’s game, the Royals had not won consecutive games since April 20. They won two of three games in Colorado last weekend before falling to Chicago in the opening two matches this week.

 

In the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader, Kansas City came back to win 2-1. The Royals are in the midst of an eight-game homestand, which will finish this weekend with three games against Minnesota. At the bottom of the AL Central standings, they are one game ahead of Detroit.

 

The Royals are towards the bottom of the majors in terms of offense, with a club batting average of 23. Edward Olivares, a rookie right fielder, had a fantastic start, hitting.371 in his first 35 at-bats. However, he is now on the 10-day disabled list due to a quad injury.

 

Salvador Perez, a veteran catcher, is also out with a thumb injury. Andrew Benintendi, the left fielder, is hitting.304 with 16 RBIs. He’ll be up against a Chicago pitching staff that ranks 13th in the league with a 3.62 ERA.

 

Carlos Hernandez will start for Kansas City; he pitched four innings and surrendered nine runs on eight hits and three walks against the Rockies.

 

  • The total went Under in 3-0-1 of the Royals’ last 4 home matches with the total set at 11.0 or higher.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 0-7 in their last 7 matches as a home underdog.
  • The Royals are 0-4 in Hernandez’s last 4 starts as an underdog.

Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago White Sox. Both teams are struggling with serious injury difficulties, but I have a lot more faith in Chicago’s ability to overcome them.

 

The White Sox have a deeper, more skilled lineup than the Royals, which will be the difference in a difficult schedule for both teams. They claimed 10 of their previous 15 games, while Kansas City lost seven of its last nine games at home. Velasquez only had one truly terrible start this season, while Hernandez had two straight blowouts.

 

The White Sox should be able to take this series, but I’d rather bet on the over/under. The Chicago White Sox will win to a predicted score of 7-5
