Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals Odds, Line, Picks & Prediction – August 15

The Minnesota Twins will face the Kansas City Royals on Monday night. Minnesota has won six of the previous eight matchups and will be looking to continue beating their American League Central foes.

The Twins lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, falling to 58-55 on the season. The Royals are now 48-68 on the year after their 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Kansas City snapped the Dodgers’ double-digit winning streak, but they’ve been mediocre on the road this season. The Twins are chasing the Cleveland Guardians right now, trailing them by 2½ games for the division lead.

Minnesota will field Joe Ryan for Monday’s contest. He is 8-5 with a 3.95 ERA in 18 starts. Kansas City’s offense doesn’t hit much, as they rank seventh in points per game and ninth in OPS.

Ryan’s performance has slipped recently, as he has allowed 16 earned runs in his last 14 2/3 innings. The good news is that the right-hander has been very solid at home this season, posting a 2.92 ERA at Target Field. He pitched well against the Royals in a 7-2 win in May, so expect Ryan to get back on track on Monday.

Kris Bubic, who is 2-6 with a 5.02 ERA, will take the mound Monday for Kansas City. He’s had a season to forget so far, and he’ll face a decent Twins lineup. Lately, however, the southpaw has been better, sporting a 2.27 ERA in his last five outings. Look for Bubic to build on their recent success in the series opener tonight.
