The Kansas City Royals will be trying to extend a winning streak on Monday when they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

The Royals will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Jason Hammel in this game. Hammel has a 4-8 record and a 4.81 ERA this season.

The Tigers will counter Hammel with Justin Verlander. Right hander Verlander has a 4.54 ERA to go along with a 5-7 record this season.

Hammel has gone five straight starts without a win but he was solid opposite Verlander on Wednesday, allowing one run in 6 1/3 innings. The 34-year-old has let up three runs or fewer in eight of his last nine outings since giving up four runs in 4 1/3 frames against the Tigers on May 29. Hammel is 2-2 with a 6.98 ERA in 11 career games (eight starts) versus Detroit.

Verlander allowed two runs and struck out eight in seven innings against Kansas City his last time out, leaving him with a 2.57 ERA in three meetings with the Royals in 2017 compared to 4.97 against all other opponents. He has the highest walk rate of his career (4.2 per nine innings) but has issued exactly one free pass in three of his last six outings. The six-time All-Star has had good success against most Royals regulars, with the notable exception of catcher Salvador Perez, who is 25-for-61 with two homers and eight doubles against Verlander.

Oddsmakers currently have the Tigers listed as 136-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Kansas City Royals have had no shortage of drama in their recent surge and will try to stay hot when they hit the road Monday for the first of three games at the Detroit Tigers. Brandon Moss delivered an RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Royals to a 6-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday, their fourth walk-off victory during a 10-game homestand.

Kansas City has won five in a row overall, one shy of matching its longest winning streak of the season, and remains 1 1/2 games behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central. Whit Merrifield has been the primary catalyst and the second baseman had a pair of solo homers Sunday to finish the homestand with a .375 average and eight RBIs. The Tigers split four games at Kansas City last week and followed that up by taking two of three at Minnesota – capped by Sunday’s 9-6 win behind Jose Iglesias, who homered and drove in three runs. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera returned from a collarbone issue but went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts to drop his average to .256, the lowest it has been in nearly two months.

Detroit won its last outing, a 9-6 result against the Twins on July 23. Bettors who backed the Tigers at 101 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (15) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Kansas City was a 5-4 winner on the road against the White Sox. Bettors on Kansas City at -127 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
