Yankees on a roll

The Yankees picked up a 7-4 win on Wednesday to stretch their win streak over Minnesota to seven games. The Yankees have now won five straight overall and sit at 14-9 on the season and 10-5 at home. New York is putting up 6.14 runs per game on offense while allowing just 4.73 per contest.

Jordan Montgomery gets the start this afternoon for the Yankees. He will be making his fifth start of the season. Montgomery is 2-0 through his four starts with a 3.80 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Over 21.1 innings of work, Montgomery has 17 strikeouts with nine walks.

Twins in a free fall

The Minnesota Twins have now lost six straight overall and seven of their last eight after Wednesday’s loss. Minnesota is now 8-11 on the season and 3-8 on the road. The Twins are scoring 4.00 runs per game this year while allowing 5.11 per contest.

Kyle Gibson gets the start today for the Twins. He is 1-1 through four starts with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Over 21 innings of work, Gibson had 20 strikeouts with 11 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 3-10 in their last 13 road games against a winning team and they have lost their last six games against AL East opponents. They are also 9-20 in Gibson’s last 29 road starts against a winning team.

New York

New York has won seven straight against AL Central opponents and they have won seven of Montgomery’s last nine starts.

Prediction:

The Twins just can’t seem to get on track and it’s hard to see them getting on track at New York with a pitcher like Gibson on the mound. He is giving up too many runs to stop this powerful lineup. Montgomery isn’t great, but he definitely has the better supporting cast.

 

The Pick: New York Yankees -190
