The Fall Classic is here once again and we have seen one of these teams before. The Giants return to the World Series for the third time in the last five years, winning their two previous appearances. The Royals are back in the Fall Classic for the first time since 1985, which was a victory over the Cardinals. Game one has a dream pitching matchup; Madison Bumgarner versus James Shields. We like the visiting Giants as they secure a game one victory on the road.
San Francisco has all the experience needed to win
The Giants have been here before, which is a major help in trying to win on one of the biggest stages in professional sports. San Francisco is looking for its third title in the last five years and will get off on the right foot when they send ace Madison Bumgarner to the mound in game one. Bumgarner has not allowed a run on the road in the post-season over the past 26.2 innings pitched.
Kansas City not letting lack of experience hurt them
This Royals team has not been here before, but their lack of experience has not hurt them. They have not lost a single game in the 2014 post-season, setting records along their route to the Fall Classic. James Shields will make the start in game one despite his 5.63 post-season ERA this year. He is the only pitcher on the roster to play in the World Series, a loss to the Phillies back in 2008 with Tampa Bay.
We will visit the sportsbook found at BetOnline.ag to find the odds for tonight’s game one of the World Series between the Royals and the Giants. We will drop 15 percent of our bankroll on the Giants and the -1.5 (+160) spread as they take game one on the road and hand Kansas City their first loss in these playoffs.
