The Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins meet in an AL Central division matchup in MLB action from Target Field on Tuesday. Let’s dive into the odds, starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.


Minnesota is a -190 home favorite while Kansas City is a +160 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 8.5 runs.

Starting Pitching Matchup

Zack Greinke will start for the Royals and is 1-8 with a 5.15 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Kenta Maeda will start for the Twins and is 1-5 with a 6.23 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. 

Matchup History

Minnesota’s 8-4 win over the Royals on Monday made it back-to-back wins and wins in 7 of the last 8 meetings for the Twins in this head-to-head matchup. 


Kansas City is 27-67 in their last 94 games overall and 19-42 in their last 61 games following a loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Minnesota is 22-45 in their last 67 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 game two matchups while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games following a win. 


I’m backing the Twins here. Minnesota’s simply the better team even if they’ve had their issues this season as the Royals have had more bad days than good over the course of this season. Greinke’s also really showing his age this season, and he’s really labored through a lot of his starts. Kenta Maeda hasn’t been anything special, but he’s got the better team behind him and I think they get the job done here.
