When it comes to the MLB Weather Report for Opening Day, Twins vs. Royals includes the potential double-whammy of both wind and rain.
Windy weather can obviously have a huge impact on scoring as strong breezing blowing out can help carry fly balls over the wall for home runs, while winds driving toward home place can have the opposite effect.
Rain is also interesting to note, especially for MLB DFS players, as it could shorten games or even cause postponements.
So with this in mind, let’s take a look at the latest MLB weather report for Twins vs. Royals, which includes very strong winds and a chance of rain for Thursday’ afternoon’s matchup.
MLB Weather Report: Twins vs. Royals
According to the National Weather Service, 17-22 mph breezes are expected at Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City this afternoon, including gusts as high as 36 mph. As always, the key question is the direction that they’ll be blowing.
Thanks to Sports Insights’ MLB weather data, we can see that steady 18-19 mph winds should blow out toward left field throughout today’s game, which should have a positive impact on scoring.
In addition, there is rain in the Opening Day MLB weather report, though the precipitation isn’t expected to hit until Thursday night, well after Twins vs. Royals is finished.
Interestingly, live MLB odds suggest that savvy bettors have likely taken note of the Twins vs. Royals weather forecast, moving the over/under from its opener of 8.5 up to 9 as of the time of writing.
