PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is behind the Twins. Minnesota is getting 69 percent of the wagers at home against the Mariners.

KEY INJURIES

Minnesota has nobody new listed on the injury report for today’s contest. Seattle DH Nelson Cruz is on the 10-day DL with an oblique strain.

BETTING STRATEGIES

The Twins opened the series on Thursday with a 4-2 victory over Seattle. Minnesota was down 2-0 after the first inning, but then rallied to score four runs over the sixth, seventh and eighth innings. Mitch Garver and Eddie Rosario each had a home run late to put Minnesota over Seattle. Miguel Sano also homered in the win and had two RBI.

Kyle Gibson got the start for the Twins and allowed one earned run over 4.1 innings. The Minnesota bullpen pitched 4.2 innings and allowed just one hit. James Paxton allowed two runs over five innings of work for the Mariners, but the Seattle pen gave up two runs over 3 innings. Jean Segura and Daniel Vogelbach each had two hits for the Mariners.

Minnesota has surprisingly looked pretty good so far and their starting pitching has held up pretty well. Berrios had an amazing start against the Orioles but I don’t think he will be able to match that today. Still, he should be strong enough to lead the Twins past the Mariners.
