Kansas City Royals vs Houston Astros 7/6/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Kansas City Royals will meet with the Houston Astros in MLB action in Minute Maid Park, TX, on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at 8:10 PM ET.

 

The Kansas City Royals are having trouble at the plate overall as they are now tied for 24th in MLB with the Arizona Diamondbacks with a.681 team OPS while averaging 3.87 runs per game.

 

The trade worth of left fielder Andrew Benintendi increased as a result of his.780 OPS, 3 home runs, 31 RBI, 32 walks, and 44 strikeouts. He is 7 for 15 with no home runs, four RBI, and a 3:2 walk-to-strikeout ratio in his first four matches of July, showing that he is hitting well.

 

Zack Grienke took a beating from his former team on Tuesday, and the Royals lost 9-7. By hitting his third home run in two games, catcher MJ Melendez continued to be on fire.

 

Looking at Brad Keller’s Baseball Savant profile thus far, it is clear that he has to improve in the second half of the regular season since his whiff % is in the ninth percentile.

 

The fact that opposition batters have a 39.1 hard-hit percentage against him was a challenge. Given that three of his four pitches are used at least 25% of the time, he mixes them up nicely. 

 

  • The Kansas City Royals are 3-7 SU in their last 10 matches. 
  • Kansas City is 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches against Houston. 
  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Kansas City’s last 13 matches on the road.

Kansas City Royals vs Houston Astros Predictions 7/6/2022

 

The Houston Astros had a great offensive season, ranking seventh in baseball with a team OPS of.744 and generating 4.43 runs per game thus far.

 

Yordan Alvarez, the designated hitter, was hitting brilliantly lately, with a 1.063 OPS with 24 home runs, 57 RBI, and 51 runs scored. He was hitting well over his last 30 games, with a slash line of.387/.476/.792 with 12 home runs and 32 RBI, 16 walks, and 19 strikeouts.

 

The Astros defeated the Royals 9-7 on Tuesday night by pounding out 13 hits and outslugging them. Now in its seventh consecutive victory, Houston.

 

It is clear from glancing at Cristian Javier’s Baseball Savant website that he was one of the finest pitchers in all of baseball thus far this season because he is in the 98th percentile for xBA. He has a 34.3 strikeout percentage for the year, which indicates that hitters are not making good contact.

 

Javier uses a four-pitch arsenal, with a remarkable 61.5 percent of pitches going to his heater. Last year, he pitched out of the bullpen twice against the Royals, going 2.1 innings while surrendering a run on one hit and striking out two.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Houston’s last 5 matches. 
  • Houston is 8-0 SU in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Houston’s last 6 matches against Kansas City.

Kansas City Royals vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. Simply put, the Houston Astros are the superior team in this situation. In his last two appearances against the Yankees and Angels, Cristian Javier was the best in the league, going 2-0 in 14 innings with one run on one hit, one walk, and 27 strikeouts.

 

Contrast that with Brad Keller’s previous seven starts, during which time he was 2-5 with a 5.77 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP. As of this writing, Kansas City is averaging 4.12 runs per game in its previous 26 matches, while Houston scored 5.08 runs per game on average over its previous 25 matches.

 

Go with the Houston Astros to prevail here in their stadium since they did so in five of the last six games against the Royals. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 8-1.
