Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals 7/30/2023 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Minnesota Twins will go against the Kansas City Royals in MLB action in Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium, MO, on Sunday, July 30, 2023, at 2:10 PM ET.

 

The Twins are in first place in the American League Central Division with a 54-51 record, but they dropped four straight matches.

 

The Royals have the second-worst record in the American League with a 30-75 record and three victories in their previous ten games.

 

The Twins will start Kenta Maeda, who only gave up three runs in his past two starts, for the series’ penultimate game, while the Royals will go with Ryan Yarbrough, who only gave up five runs in his last three appearances. 

 

With a solid season remaining, the Twins want to win the division in the next two months of competition.

 

In 48.2 innings thrown with 58 strikeouts, Kenta Maeda only allowed 26 runs, and he intends to continue this success in the upcoming game.

 

Furthermore, Maeda’s opponents are making little contact and finding it difficult to score runs this season, with an estimated opponent batting average of .237, a strikeout rate of 28.9%, and an expected earned run average of 3.78.

 

Although Maeda improved, the lineup had trouble, scoring just 4.40 runs per game. Alex Kirilloff was cutting. Donovan Solano is slashing and has a 271/.360/.448 lines with 99 total bases.

 

The remainder of the lineup struggled, hitting only 263/.367/.393 with 97 total bases. Opposition pitchers might limit the top-heavy lineup because only three batters have an OPS+ above 100.

 

The Twins’ bullpen pitchers entered 96 save situations with a 52.3% save percentage. This season, 111 runners were inherited by relief pitchers, and 31.5% of those runners scored a run for their side.

 

In addition to making 119 appearances in high-pressure situations, Twins pitchers took the mound 84 times with runners on base.

 

Over the season, the Twins used 312 bullpen pitchers. This season, the bullpen has 51 holds, ranking 19th in MLB. They made 23 saves so far this year but missed 21 of their 44 chances to do so.

 

  • The Minnesota Twins are 1-4 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Minnesota is 26-25 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 4 of the Twins’ last 5 matches.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 7/30/2023

 

The Royals are having a terrible season and are about to make big trades before the deadline. Ryan Yarbrough, who will start the upcoming game, had a difficult season, having given up 23 runs in 44 innings.

 

In addition, Yarbrough’s opponents are readily scoring runs against him thanks to a .272 projected opponent batting average, a .428 expected opponent slugging percentage, and a 4.59 predicted ERA.

 

Yarbrough had trouble, but the lineup is among baseball’s worst, scoring only 3.72 runs per game. Robert Witt is cutting.

 

Salvador Perez is adding 17 home runs and 155 total bases while hitting .257/.296/.451 with 188 total bases, while the rest of the order struggled.

 

Opposing pitchers may take out the unfortunate lineup since only two batters have 10 or more home runs, and only one has an OPS+ of above 100.

 

The Royals now have 64 save opportunities and 35 holds, and 15 missed saves. In 29 save opportunities, Kansas City used bullpen pitchers to take the mound, and they have 14 saves to their credit.

 

Their relievers entered the hill 68 times with runners on and 82 times in high-pressure situations. With a 48.3% save rate and 345 relievers used this season, they are ranked 29th in baseball.

 

  • The Kansas City Royals are 2-3 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Kansas City is 20-33 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Royals’ last 5 matches.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. The Twins, who had a solid season, hope to step up in the series finale and take control of this game, while the Royals aim to win.

 

With Alex Kirilloff, Donovan Solano, and the rest of the lineup consistently making hard contact and smashing pitches against the Royals’ pitching, the Twins want to build on a game in which they scored seven runs and consistently drove in runs.

 

Kenta Maeda should throw several quality innings for the Twins to restrict the Royals’ offense, allowing the bullpen to close the game with a large lead.

 

With a solid showing on the road, the Twins should prevail to save one game of the series. The Minnesota Twins will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
