Online baseball betting respect for the Kansas City Royals is growing after almost 20 years of KC drowning gamblers in red ink against the MLB lines. In the online baseball betting matchup between the Royals and Cleveland Indians the probable starting pitchers posted on the MLB lines should be right hander Sidney Ponson for Kansas City and left hander Aaron Laffey of Cleveland.
Ponson had two starts to begin the online baseball betting season and was 0-1 with a 4.50 earned run average. He has been horrible against Cleveland in his career with a mark of 0-7 and an 8.60 earned run average. Laffey had just one start so far in the online baseball betting campaign and had no decision with a 3.38 earned run average.
He has had solid career numbers against the Royals as he was 2-2 with a tidy 2.73 earned run average. These two teams met earlier in the online baseball betting season on April 13-15 at Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, as the Royals took two out of three games in that series.
The Kansas City Royals won 7 out of their first 11 online baseball betting decisions and were in first place in the AL central division. Pitching is the online baseball betting strength of Kansas City as they ranked 3rd overall in the majors for earned run average at 2.94.
The Royal offense is more suspect and ranked just 23rd. The questionable offense and strong pitching has helped Kansas City trend under the total with a mark of 8 unders in those first 11 games. John Buck has led the lineup with a .421 average along with 3 home runs and 9 runs batted in.
The Cleveland Indians stumbled badly out of the gate to start the online baseball betting season with 9 losses in their first 13 games. While the Indians were a fantastic 2nd overall in hitting their pitching has killed them and ranked 29th.
