Prediction and Conclusion

Both the Royals and the Dodgers have a great season so far, and it will be interesting to see how this series goes. The Royals turned things around in the ninth inning yesterday against the Yankees, so they are going to LA in a good mood. That is not the case with the Dodgers, who lost the last two to the Rangers and will need to step up tonight. Gavin Stone will be on the mound for the Dodgers, and he has had a solid season. The 25-year-old is 7-2 for the season with a 2.93 ERA, 53 K, 67.2 IP, and 1.24 WHIP. On the other side, the Royals will start with Cole Ragans, who is 4-4 for the season with a 3.08 ERA, 98 K, 79 IP, and 1.15 WHIP. The Royals won three of the last four against the Dodgers and are visiting the Dodgers for the first time since 2017. They will lack motive tonight and will cover the +1.5-run spread.
