The Kansas City Royals (10-6) will face the struggling Chicago White Sox (2-13) in this AL Central showdown on Monday, April 15, at 7:40 PM ET at the Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois. The Royals are becoming moderate favorites, with a moneyline at -185.

Kansas City Royals Betting Preview

The Royals have gone 3-2 in their previous five games and have an excellent opportunity to push further. Their most recent performance was a 2-1 defeat on the road against the New York Mets.

Seth Lito (2-0) is getting the start on the mound and has put together incredible numbers so far. His ERA is 1.45, and his WHIP is 1.18. He should make a significant impact against a struggling offense like the White Sox.

Salvador Perez leads them in several offensive categories but is currently listed as day-to-day on the injury report. He has four home runs, a batting average of .339, and 15 RBIs so far. He also has an on-base percentage of .369 and a slugging percentage of .565.

The Royals have been great at the plate, with a batting average of .250. However, they have allowed their opponents to keep up with a batting average of .245, which shows very little room for error.

Chicago White Sox Betting Preview

The White Sox have lost their last four games and need to break the cycle soon. Their most recent defeat was an 11-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. This also marked their fourth loss in a row in which they allowed five or more runs per game.

Their pitching will need a shakeup. They will be giving Nick Nastrini, who makes his debut, the start. Their team ERA currently stands at 4.97.

Their offense needs a boost, too, as their leading player, Andrew Vaughn only has a batting average of .185. Gavin Sheets leads them with eight RBIs, which offers some hope for them in this game.

The White Sox have a batting average of .200 and will have a tough time against the Royals keeping up with their offense. They allow their opponents to have a batting average of.251, which is different from the difference you want to have at the plate.
