If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals meet at Royals Stadium.

The White Sox will trot Derek Holland out to the mound in this one. Left hander Holland has a 5-9 record and a 5.55 ERA this season.

It’ll be Travis Wood toeing the rubber for the Royals in this contest. Left hander Wood is 1-3 with a 6.81 ERA so far this season.

Holland finished May with a 2.37 ERA through 10 starts, but he has given up at least five runs in six of eight starts since June began. The veteran southpaw, who was reached for six runs (five earned) in 5 2/3 innings of a no-decision against Seattle his last time out, has an ERA of 18.44 over his last four road outings. He visited Kansas City on May 4 during his hot start and let up one earned run in 6 2/3 frames, improving to 3-1 lifetime versus the Royals.

Wood’s first start after 25 relief appearances resulted in a solid four innings against Minnesota on July 2, but he followed that up with a rocky showing in a loss to Detroit on Tuesday. The one-time All-Star surrendered six runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 frames against the Tigers, which left him 35-51 in his career as a starter. The 30-year-old has a 6.65 ERA in eight career games (three starts) versus Chicago and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is 4-for-5 with three doubles against Wood.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 131-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 11.

The Kansas City Royals began their current homestand in rough fashion, but they are finishing it with a flourish. The surging Royals seek their fifth consecutive win to cap off the 10-game stay at Kauffman Stadium when they take on the Chicago White Sox in the finale of a three-game series Sunday afternoon.

Two homers by Mike Moustakas and long balls by three others propelled the Royals to a 7-2 victory Saturday night, giving them 30 runs over the past three contests and a 5-4 record on the homestand. Whit Merrifield did not homer but had an RBI single in two at-bats and is batting .351 since the All-Star break for Kansas City, which is 24-2 since June 1 when scoring at least four runs. The White Sox have dropped a season-high eight straight games, matching the team’s longest slide since a nine-gamer in 2013. Melky Cabrera has been one of the few bright spots for Chicago and he went 4-for-4 on Saturday, his second four-hit effort during the slide.

Kansas City was a 7-2 winner in its last match on the road against the White Sox. They won as -168 favorites, while the total score of 9 made winners of UNDER bettors.

The White Sox were a 7-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Royals. That made winners of bettors who got Kansas City at -168 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for UNDER bettors.
