[b]Twins -127 3.5* MLB POD[/b]
Right now there may not be a more streaky pitcher in MLB than Jeremy Guthrie and right now he's struggling. Now he goes on the road to face the Twins where the Royals are just 9-21 in their last 30 in Minny. Guthrie has an ERA over 6 in June starts over the last 3 years so there is not a coincidence that he's struggled this month and against the Twins he has struggled to in 104 AB they have a .298 average and a .981 OPS. The Twins bats are also heating up right now ranked 4th in OPS .830 over the last 7 days. KC on the other hand are ranked 20th.

KC has had a difficult time against RHP and they'll face Sam Deduno who has an ERA at home under 3.00 in his career. He's a ground ball machine and hardly gives up home runs which means you have to work and get consecutive hits to score off him. I don't think the Royals can do that right now as they have a .561 OPS off Deduno who has given up 1 ER in 2 starts against them. Guthrie on the other hand is giving up nearly 2 HR per game and caries an xFIP OF 5.14.
