Suddenly the Minnesota Twins have a little momentum. In search of their third win in a row, the Twins will host the Los Angeles Angels again at 2:10PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Twins are +105 money line home underdogs versus the visiting Angels, who have odds of -125 to win today's game. The total, meanwhile, sits at 9 runs with Nicholas Tropeano set to face Kyle Gibson in the pitching matchup.
Trevor Plouffe led the Twins with three hits in the team's win over the Angels on Saturday. One of those hits was a solo home run and now has five hits in nine at-bats against Los Angeles. Three of those hits have gone for extra bases he's feeling it right now.
For the Angels, Yunel Escobar extended his hitting streak to seven games in the loss on Saturday. He had three hits and reached base four times while walking once. Thus far, Escobar is hitting .356 with a .431 on base percentage.
OUR PREDICTION: I don't know if the Twins can keep winning but the over should continue to cash. The ove ris now 21-6-1 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams in Minnesota and is 38-17-5 in the last 60 meetings overall. The over is also 3-1-1 in Gibson's last five starts versus the Angels and is 4-1-1 in Tropeano's last six starts overall.
