The Cleveland Guardians and the Kansas City Royals wrap up a four-game season opening series at 2:10 p.m. ET on Monday. Cleveland and Kansas City are both listed at -105 (risk $105 to win $100) at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 8.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page). 

Before making any Guardians vs. Royals picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, enters Week 2 of the 2022 season on a 216-181 roll on top-rated MLB money-line picks that dates back to last season, returning over $900 for $100 players. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns!

The model knows the Guardians project to have the superior offense. Cleveland is striking out on only 20 percent of plate appearances this season. The Guardians lead the American League in both batting average (.298) and on-base percentage (.360) through three games. Cleveland is also leading the AL with 25 singles, and the Guardians have two triples on their ledger.

The model also knows the Royals have some characteristics to lean on in this matchup. Kansas City scored seven runs in only 11 innings against Cleveland starter Aaron Civale last season. From there, the Royals can lean on Carlos Hernandez, with the right-hander boasting a 3.68 ERA in 2021. He allowed only 0.74 home runs per nine innings last season, and Hernandez has 3.2 scoreless innings on his profile against Cleveland.

Now, it has set its sights on Guardians vs. Royals. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has all the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
