Will Rodgers Sports HandicapperI won my last two MLB playoff picks and am going for three straight on Friday in Game 1 of the World Series! I had a sparkling run down the stretch (in the regular season), and look to finish in the same fashion in the postseason. Hop on board now!

Kansas City Royals at San Francisco Giants Prediction

In Monday’s interleague matchup between Kansas City and San Francisco, the Giants are the favorites to pick up a win. Even though Brady Singer has had some strong moments this season, he has struggled in his last 3 outings. On the other side, Alex Wood appears to be turning his season around, giving up just 2 and 1 runs in his last two outings, respectively. I like the Giants on the runline.
