PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public betting for this game is behind the Astros. Houston is getting 68 percent of the wagers on the road against the Twins.

KEY INJURIES

Neither team has nobody new listed on the injury report for today’s contest. Eddie Rosario is expected to be rested by the Twins today.

BETTING STRATEGIES

Houston won the first game of the series on Monday, 2-0, but the Twins answered with a 4-1 win on Tuesday. Jake Odorizzi pitched six innings to get the win for Minnesota. He allowed just one run on five hits. The Minnesota bullpen pitched three innings and allowed only two hits. Dallas Keuchel lasted just four innings for the Astros, as he fell to 0-2 on the season. He allowed three runs on six hits with four walks and six strikeouts.

Joe Mauer had a pair of hits and drove in two runs to lead the Twins at the plate. Robbie Grossman added a double for Minnesota. Houston was led by Jose Altuve, who had a pair of hits, as did J.D. Davis.

The Astros haven’t been hitting all that well in this series and Gibson has looked good on the mound thus far. McCullers hasn’t been too bad himself, but give the odds are so in favor of the Astros, I think I will take my chances on Gibson at home. He hasn’t been giving up many hits and the Astros haven’t been doing much hitting.
