The Royals had a winning season in 2003. Other than that, they have been pretty bad. They have had 100+ losing seasons in 3 of the past 4 years. In those 3 years they are a combined 176-310 (-69 units).
One thing about these Royals that I loved taking advantage of in the 2005 season was their horrible starts to a series. In the first game of a series, going against these Royals was 38-13 (+18 units). When the Royals were on the road, this angle statistically improved to 20-5 (+11 units) on the season!
Bad teams usually start a series bad. Since the baseball season is long, losing can take its toll on a team and cause them to lose spirits. Tough to muster up motivation to play a road game when you had to travel the night before. Take that tidbit of informmation and couple it with the fact that they are a lousy team to begin with and you got yourself a decent betting proposition.
Of those 51 series played, when the Royals lost the first game of the series they came back to lose the second one. Betting against the Royals in those 38 games was 28-10 (+9 units). Combining the two angles together and you had yourself a very decent year at 66-23 (+27 units).
Watch how these Royals start their Game 1s as you handicap the 2006 season.
