New York Yankees vs. vs. Kansas City Royals: betting odds and predictions for Jun 10

Publish Date: 06/10/2024
Fact checked by: Allan Howe

The New York Yankees avoided the three-game sweep at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 6-4 victory with a big thanks to their power bats coming alive when they needed it the most. Before this series against the Dodgers, the Yankees won each of their last six games and they hope to get back to that form when they head to Kansas City to take on the Royals.

Meanwhile, the Royals were searching for a three-game sweep against the Mariners that would put them in a position to gain some ground on the first-place Cleveland Guardians in the AL Central but a 10th-inning loss has them now four games behind them. With that said, we take a look at this matchup to make a Yankees-Royals prediction and pick.

New York Yankees

New York Yankees (46-21) are now just clinging onto the top spot in the AL East with a 2.5-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles after dropping two of three from the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers over the weekend. They now head to Kansas City to take on the surging Royals as the Yankees look to stay at the top by taking this road series.

The Yankees bats who were red-hot coming into their home matchup over this past weekend were stifled against the pitching of the Dodgers.

  • They were limited to just 10 runs in their last 3 games when they averaged 7.14 runs per game during their seven-game winning streak prior to last weekend's matchup.

Now, they head out on the road in hopes of extending their winning ways against the Kansas City Royals. The Yankees will send their ace Carlos Rodon to the mound who's been solid for the Yankees this season.

  • Rodon has an 8-2 record, with a 3.08 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts in 73 innings. Rodon will be tasked with slowing down the hot bats of the Royals who have been crushing the ball as of late.
  • Rodon has been sensational over his last five starts winning all five games with just a 2.40 ERA, giving up 8 Earned Runs on 19 hits with 28 strikeouts in 30 innings pitched.
  • Luckily for Rodon, he has a great supporting cast around him as the Yankees are averaging 5.5 runs, 8 hits, and 1.2 home runs during their last five games.

The Yankees will face off against the Royals' ace Seth Lugo who has been a revelation for this Royals starting rotation. However, Lugo draws a very tough matchup against this powerful Yankees squad.

If there was any lineup that could get after Lugo it would certainly be the Yankees.

As long as Rodon can limit the damage from the Royals the Yankees can continue their winning ways in game 1 of this three-game series against the Kansas City Royals.

Kansas City Royals

Kansas City Royals (39-27) finished their series with the AL West-leading Seattle Mariners taking two of three after some 10th-inning heroics from the Mariners avenged their two losses in the series.

The Royals were looking to make up some ground on the AL Central-leading Cleveland Guardians but after their loss to the Mariners, they sit in second place four games behind the top spot.

On Monday night, the Royals welcome the first-place New York Yankees to town in hopes of getting back on track in this series. The Royals will be sending their ace Seth Lugo to the mound who's been sensational this season.

  • Lugo has a 9-1 record with a 2.13 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts in 84.1 innings pitched this season.

Lugo is coming off his worst outing of the season where he gave up a season-high 5 Earned Runs on 6 hits and 2 home runs against the Cleveland Guardians.

  • Even with that rough outing, Lugo is still 4-1 with a 2.00 ERA and 35 strikeouts in 32.2 innings pitched over his last five games.

The Royals bats are the ones who have been doing the heavy lifting in recent games. During their three-game home stand against the Seattle Mariners, the Royals scored 23 runs as they took two of three in the series.

  • The Royals over their last five games have been averaging 6.4 runs, 9.6 hits, 1.4 runs, and .340 OBP with a .270 batting average.

In this matchup against the Yankees, Lugo will need to be in his best form like he was prior to the matchup with the Guardians to give the Royals' bats some breathing room as they look to take game 1 against the Yankees in this three-game series at home.

FINAL YANKEES-ROYALS PICK & PREDICTION

The Kansas City Royals are looking to get back on track after hitting dropping the last game of their three-game series with the visiting Seattle Mariners meanwhile, the Yankees look to continue their momentum after dropping two of three from the Dodgers when they head out on the road to Kaufman Stadium.

  • Both teams send surging pitchers Seth Lugo and Carlos Rodon to the mound who have been pitching very well this season.
  • All signs point to this matchup being a pitcher's duel with runs being very limited.
  • While it is tough to take a side here, the Yankees should be able to keep their winning ways going in tonight's matchup.

The Royals struggle against left-handed pitching and today's matchup will be no different. The Yankees will continue their hot streak at the plate giving Rodon enough run support to get the win and continue their momentum.
