Kansas City Royals vs San Diego Padres 5/15/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Kansas City Royals will go against the San Diego Padres in MLB action in Petco Park, CA, on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 9:40 PM ET.


The Royals were on the rise with a 4-1 run going into the weekend. That sensation vanished right away in Milwaukee after getting swept.


As the fourth game of a nine-game road trip, the team’s 12-30 road record will be put to the test once again. If Kansas City wants to have any hope of making it to .500, their pitching will need to be better.


Brad Keller, who had a little luck on the mound this season, will make his ninth start of 2023 when the series gets underway.


His current ERA is 4.31. The fact that Keller issued the most walks of any pitcher this season resulted in a 1.765 WHIP and 5.38 FIP.


His current xERA is 5.09. He is lucky that his issues aren’t being struck hard because he is by no means the only pitcher having trouble on a staff that ranks 28th in ERA.


Ask the bullpen in Kansas City, which ranks 27th overall with a 5.10 ERA and a 10.8% walk rate.


Only two MLB clubs are generating more runs per game this month than the Kansas City Royals, pending the outcome of Sunday Night Baseball.


They are averaging 5.92 per game in May with six home runs in 11 games and a slash line of .381/.438/.857. 


  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Kansas City’s last 9 matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 6-12 SU in their last 18 matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 5-10 SU in their last 15 matches against San Diego.

Kansas City Royals vs San Diego Padres Predictions 5/15/2023


San Diego started to fall apart once more just when it appeared like everything was going according to plan for the Padres.


This squad won seven of its past eight games, including a 1-5 record against the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers.


They also have championship hopes. Coming into this series, they are now in third place and 7.0 matches behind the Dodgers (4.0 games behind the Diamondbacks).


All eyes should be on San Diego’s lineup, which is loaded with All-Stars and is 28th in runs per game.


Over the past eight matches, the Padres scored 19 runs (2.38 per game), with six of those runs coming in their lone victory. Additionally, San Diego scored more than three runs in only that one game. 


With the Padres scoring at least five runs in four of his seven starts, Michael Wacha had strong run support. Wacha also did well this month, throwing 12.0 innings and just allowing one run.


While his number of walks increased somewhat—almost reaching his April total—he also decreased the number of hits—only allowing five in May.


Last year, Wacha pitched against the Royals and only gave up one run in seven innings.


  • The total went UNDER in 10 of San Diego’s last 11 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of San Diego’s last 7 matches against Kansas City.

Kansas City Royals vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the Kansas City Royals. This game ought to be close.


Although Kansas City’s offense is currently raking, they are up against a squad that pitchers effectively, particularly at home.


The Royals’ Keller walks a lot of batters, and the Padres are one of the top teams at drawing walks, so San Diego should get plenty of them in this game.


The problem is San Diego’s inability to generate a hit or contact to bring those runs home. This season, especially recently, they did not demonstrate that they can accomplish it.


The Royals +1.5 is the most secure wager and offers exceptional value given the struggles of both clubs. The Royals will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
