KC Royals vs LA Angels ALDS Playoff Odds

kc-royals-vs-la-anglesThe 2014 MLB post-season has barely begun and yet the Kansas City Royals have already captivated the sporting world with their dramatic extra innings walk-off victory at home on Tuesday night versus the Oakland Athletics.  One night after the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs embarrassed the Patriots at home with some Royals’ players in attendance, catcher Salvador Perez hit a walk off single in the bottom of the 12th inning Tuesday night to send the Royals into the ALDS in the league’s most exciting Wild Card play-in game ever.

Kansas City showed a sense of resiliency Tuesday night after trailing the A’s on multiple occasions, including late in the 7th inning when Oakland took a commanding 7-3 lead and knocking around SP James Shields for six earned runs.  However a combination of excellent base running with an MLB record seven stolen bases and some timely hitting by some unlikely heroes, the Royals vaulted themselves back into the post-season for the first time in 27 years.

The task becomes increasingly more difficult now as the Royals must travel to the west coast for the first game of the second ALDS matchup and play the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels are the majors best team with a league leading 98 wins and a winning percentage of .605, both are MLB best.  The Angels have been playing great baseball all season long, and manager Mike Scioscia always has his teams play sound fundamental defense, hitting and base running.

Pinnacle Sports has Los Angeles favored to win the five game series paying (1.574) whle the Royals are the countering at (2.54).  The starting pitchers for Game 1 are Jered Weaver for the Angels (18-9, 3.59 ERA) while KC counters with Jason Vargas (11-10, 3.71 ERA).

In order for the Royals to make this a series and last longer than three games, they will certainly need some solid starting pitching to neutralize the potent sluggers of the Angels.  When a batting lineup has MVP caliber hitters the likes of OF Mike Trout, 1B Albert Pujols and OF Josh Hamilton, one poor pitch could decide a game.

Pinnacle is offering a lot when it comes to baseball playoffs this year. Including alternate run lines for each game and player vs player props along with inning by inning betting. Pinnacle is by far one of the best Canadian friendly sportsbooks around offering the lowest juice and best payout odds anywhere. Review Pinnacle Sports
