Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Max Kepler drove in three runs with a pair of singles Friday against the Mariners. Since they were facing a left-hander, the Twins had Kepler in the sixth spot in the lineup tonight. He's struggled against southpaws this year, but he's done well as a leadoff man against righties, hitting nine homers and scoring 23 runs in 33 games at the top of the order.

Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

Marco Gonzales turned in another poor outing Friday, giving up six runs -- five earned -- in five innings against the Twins. After such a fine beginning to the season that saw him go 5-0 with a 2.80 ERA, Gonzalez has allowed 17 runs -- 11 earned -- in 16 2/3 innings while taking three losses this month. It doesn't help that his recent starts have come against the Cubs, Yankees, Red Sox and now the Twins. Things will get a little easier with consecutive starts against the Rangers coming up.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are a perfect 12-0 in their last 12 road games when facing an opponent that has a losing record.

Seattle

The Mariners are 8-22 in their last 30 games versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.

Prediction:

This Seattle team is in a funk and I don’t expect the Mariners will snap out of it tonight with Jose Berrios on the hill for the Twins. Minnesota is 5-1 in Berrios’ last six starts and is now 36-16 in its last 52 games overall. The Mariners, meanwhile, have dropped 23 of 32 overall and 12 of 16 at home. Despite being a profitable 24-11 in Wade LeBlanc’s last 35 starts, I can’t bring myself to back the M’s against Berrios and a hot-swinging Twins team.

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -131
