According to oddsmakers, the Twins are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -120 to win.

The public betting for this game currently has 65 percent of the wagers going on Minnesota on the road.

Twins struggling at the plate
Minnesota has now lost three straight games following a 4-3 loss on Saturday. The Twins have dropped three straight, scoring just five runs total. Minnesota is now 21-26 overall with a 10-14 record on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.09 runs per game this season while allowing 4.47 runs per contest.
Jose Berrios gets the start for the Twins today. He is 5-4 through 10 starts with a 3.82 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. Berrios has pitched a total of 61.1 innings and has 59 strikeouts with 12 walks.
Seattle rolling along
Seattle is in one of its best stretches this season, winning seven of their last eight games. They have held six of their last seven opponents to three runs or less. Seattle is now 31-20 overall and 14-10 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.39 runs per game this season while giving up 4.20 runs per contest.
Mike Leake gets the start for the Mariners this afternoon. He is 4-3 through 10 starts with a 5.46 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. Leake has pitched 57.2 innings this year and has 37 strikeouts with 16 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 5-1 in Berrios’ last six Sunday starts, but just 3-12 in his last 15 road starts. They also are just 1-5 in their last six against a winning team.
The Mariners have won five straight home games and five straight against AL Central opponents. They also are 5-1 in their last six following a win.
While the Twins are turning to one of their best arms, I am not sure he will be able to be strong enough to overcome Minnesota’s latest hitting woes. The Mariners are pitching well as a staff right now and I think that should continue, even if Leake’s numbers aren’t great. I will stick with Seattle to keep rolling.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners +100
