MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 6-1 in their last seven road games. Minnesota is 36-16 in its last 52 games overall.

Los Angeles

The Angels are 4-0 in their last four series openers. Los Angeles is 13-5 in its last 18 games versus the AL Central.

Prediction:

Minnesota is enjoying a strong season and has played well on the road. Odorizzi is posting some of the best numbers in his career and yet is an underdog here against an inconsistent Angels squad. Take advantage of this line and although traveling west can often be a tough situation, the Twins are simply traveling south and are adjusted to the time difference. Go with Odorizzi and a Twins squad that has their sights set on a fantastic season.
