As we offer our predictions forecasts for this weekend's Major League Baseball series, it is also important to monitor potential weather affects in certain cities.  Here we have the potential for scattered thunderstorms in the Kansas City area both Friday and Saturday.  The Royals will be hosting the Atlanta Braves.  Be sure to review your sportsbook's rules for postponements prior to placing a bet on this game.


Friday's Game

Partly cloudy skies early. Scattered thunderstorms developing later at night. Gusty winds and small hail are possible. Low around 60F. Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 40%.

This was just a matter of any shift in the forecast should storms arrive earlier.  This game did start at 7:10 pm local time and got off without a hitch.  Storms were rolling in for the overnight hours.

Saturday's Game

Variable clouds with scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon. High 63F. Winds NW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

As you can see, the rain chances are even greater here with a mid-afternoon starting time of 3:10 pm CT.

Braves-Royals Series Trends

Game 1 had the Braves open at -125 and Royals sitting around Even odds or -105/+105.

Brady Singer starts for the Royals in Friday's game.  He is 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA.  Charlie Morton is 1-1 with a 4.35 ERA.  He's allowed just 6 hits in 45 at bats vs. Royals players.  None of those were home runs.

The Braves are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. American League Central and 5-1 in their last 6 road games.  They are 12-4 in their last 16 interleague games.

The Royals are 4-11 in their last 15 overall.  They are just 2-10 in their last 12 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter.

While KC has had their way with the Braves in their most recent meetings, those were pre-pandemic.
