Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 4/1/2023


In the second game of their three-game series, the Kansas City Royals will look to rebound from their lackluster showing in their season opener against the Minnesota Twins.


Despite having a new manager in Matt Quatraro, the Royals offense struggled to get going against the Twins, managing just two hits and going 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position.


The Royals wasted a decent performance by Zack Greinke, who allowed two runs over 5.1 innings but took the loss.


Jordan Lyles, who joined the Royals as a free agent after a season with the Orioles, will make his debut for Kansas City in this contest.


Lyles made 32 starts for the Orioles last season, finishing with a 12-11 record and a 4.42 ERA, although he did allow 26 home runs.


In his fourth career start against the Twins, Lyles will look to improve upon his 3.57 ERA and 1.076 WHIP over 15.2 innings of work.


He has pitched three times at Kauffman Stadium in his career, posting a 1-1 record with a 5.09 ERA and 1.302 WHIP.


  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Kansas City’s last 6 meetings with Minnesota.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games at home.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Kansas City’s last 5 games against an opponent in the AL.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. Jordan Lyles has had a tendency to give up home runs throughout his career, surrendering 64 over the last two seasons alone.


In fact, he led the league in home runs allowed with 38 while pitching for the Rangers in 2021.


While Minnesota struggled offensively in the first game of the series, they should be more effective with runners on base going forward.


Unless Kansas City’s batting lineup shows some improvement, it seems Minnesota will have the edge in this game, with a predicted score of 7-3.
