Yankees surging

The Yankees are starting to find their stride, as they have won five of their last seven games, scoring at least five runs in four of those five victories. New York is now 11-9 overall and 7-5 at home. The Yankees are averaging 5.65 runs per game while allowing 5.00 runs per contest.

Masahiro Tanaka is on the mound for New York tonight. He is 2-2 through four starts this season. He has a 6.45 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP. Over 22.1 innings of work, Tanaka has 23 strikeouts with four walks.

Twins on a losing skid

The Minnesota Twins are coming off being swept by the Rays in Tampa and they have now dropped four of their last five games. Minnesota is now 8-8 on the season and 3-5 on the road. The Twins are scoring 4.25 runs per game this season while allowing 4.38 per contest.

Jake Odorizzi gets the start today for the Twins. He is making his fifth start of the year tonight and he comes into the game 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Odorizzi has 19 strikeouts with 11 walks over 21.1 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are just 2-8 in their last 10 against AL East opponents and 2-5 in their last seven series openers. Minnesota is also 0-4 in their last four Monday games.

New York

The Yankees are 38-18 in their last 56 home games and they have won Tanaka’s last 5 Monday starts. They also are 40-18 in his last 58 starts at home.

Prediction:

Tanaka’s starts have been getting progressively worse, which has to be a concern. However, Minnesota hasn’t looked good at the plate recently. I like what Odorizzi has been able to do this year, but he is facing a very tough New York lineup in the short porch of Yankee Stadium.

 

The Pick: New York Yankees -210
