Kansas City Royals vs Cleveland Guardians 7/25/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Kansas?City Royals will take on Cleveland at 7:10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at Progressive Field, OH. Only the Oakland Athletics had a lower winning percentage heading into this series.


Kansas City separated from them?by only 0.5 games. With the poorest OBP and the lowest number of runs per game in MLB, the?Royals are the 29th-worst team in the league.


The Royals ranked fifth with 84 steals and 26 catches,?which constitutes a success rate of 76.4%. If not, look for the Royals at the bottom of any stats at the plate.


This includes batting average (25th), slugging percentage (27th), walk rate (28th), and home?runs (28th).


Kansas City also ranks 28th out of 30 teams in team ERA. This season, the bullpen was among the weakest in the league, and Aroldis Chapman was dealt. Some pitchers in the rotation likely only have a few more MLB starts.


Zack Greinke may one day have his name in Cooperstown, but there’s no denying he’s past his prime. This season, he has a 5.40 ERA, including a 7.42 ERA in road games.


Along with Greinke’s current 4.92 FIP, that full-season ERA would be the second-worst of his 20-year career. In 6.0 innings in late June, he kept the Guardians to two runs (despite receiving 11 hits), leading to a rare Royals victory.


But in his previous 11 starts, it was his sole victory for the Royals.


  • The total went UNDER in 11 of Kansas City’s last 16 matches.
  • Kansas City is 1-5 SU in their previous six games.
  • Kansas City is 3-7 SU in their last ten matches against Cleveland.

Kansas City Royals vs Cleveland Guardians Predictions 7/25/2023


The AL Central winners from 2022 are currently a couple of games behind that top spot. Of course, they were behind the Twins for most of the season last year and were in a similar situation.


They will take on the Royals, a team they scored 39 runs against in seven games, in their most recent attempt to finish climbing the AL Central standings.


Cleveland had trouble scoring for most of the season (24th in runs per game), but before Monday’s game, they scored 5.0 runs per contest.


The squad possesses MLB’s best contact skills, accounting for its 13th-ranked batting average and lowest strikeout percentage.


They have the fewest home runs in the league and rank 25th in walk rate, which is a problem—every issue from the previous season.


With an 80.0% success percentage entering the week, the Guardians steal bases just as well as the Royals.


The pitching continued to stand out in Cleveland despite the bullpen’s difficult month. After a dip, this bunch of relievers is still third in ERA and 12th in FIP this year.


Additionally, the rotation contributed, and Aaron Civale’s 11 starts were crucial.


Civale’s 2.71 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 3.71 FIP all reflect career bests-in seasons when he faced at least 250 hitters while having a career-high walk rate and a career-low strikeout rate.


Civale pitched seven innings of two-hit ball against Kansas City in his lone start of the year, striking out nine while walking none.


The Royals never presented a scoring threat. Since then, The Guardians have dropped both of his starts so a repeat performance would be very appreciated.


  • The total went OVER in six of Cleveland’s last eight matches.
  • The total went UNDER in five of Cleveland’s last six matches against Kansas City.
  • The total went UNDER in six of Cleveland’s last nine matches at home.

Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Guardians. The MLB pick for this game is the Cleveland Guardians. The Royals were losing, which is what they do best this season, with a five-game skid before traveling to Cleveland.


Another defeat here looks certain against a squad that demolished them all year and a pitcher who made them look silly—especially in light of Zack Greinke’s dismal road performance this season compared to the Guardians’ improved hitting this month.


Cleveland also has a massive advantage in the bullpen if this game is tight in the late innings. The home team triumphs by a large margin. The Cleveland Guardians will win by a predicted score of 7-3.
