Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Max Kepler went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays. Kepler had one hit in his last 18 at-bats coming into the game, but Twins manager Rocco Baldelli wrote his name at the top of the lineup card and it paid off. The multi-hit game was Kepler's first this month, raising his season line to .250/.321/.491 overall. He's got seven homers, 17 RBI and 17 runs scored on the year.

Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Trent Thornton hurled seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Rangers last Friday. Thornton was perfect his first time through the Rangers’ lineup and carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning before giving up a leadoff single to Nomar Mazara. He allowed just one hit, recorded five strikeouts and only issued a pair of walks over seven frames. He was forced to settle for a no-decision thanks to a stellar performance by opposing starter Mike Minor, who blanked the Blue Jays offense for eight innings. It was a much-needed rebound effort for the 25-year-old righty, who had surrendered four earned runs or more in three of his last four starts. He’s 0-3 with a 4.08 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 38/14 K/BB ratio across seven starts. He’ll look to carry his momentum into his next start against an extremely deep Twins’ lineup at home on Wednesday.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are now 9-3 in their last 11 games overall.

Toronto

The Blue Jays are just 1-7 in their last eight games overall.

Prediction:

After taking a flier on the Blue Jays last night as an underdog, I’m going to stick with the hotter team tonight. The Twins are a perfect 6-0 in their last six games at Rogers Centre and have won seven of Kyle Gibson’s last nine starts. They’re also 5-1 in his last six road outings while the Blue Jays have dropped five of Thornton’s last seven starts. Minnesota is hot and inexpensive on the moneyline.

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -107
