Twins end losing skid

The Twins put an end to their 4-game losing streak on Monday by picking up an 8-5 win at Kansas City. Minnesota is now 22-27 overall with a 11-15 record on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.10 runs per game while allowing 4.45 per contest.

Kyle Gibson takes the mound for the Twins on Tuesday night. He is 1-3 through 10 starts this season and has a 4.02 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Gibson has 58 strikeouts and 27 walks through 56 innings of work.

Royals back in a funk

Despite winning three straight on the road last week, the Royals have now dropped three of their last four games with the loss on Monday. Kansas City is now 18-36 overall and 7-19 at home. The Royals are putting up 4.02 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.56 per game.

Danny Duffy gets the start for the Royals on Tuesday night. He is 2-6 through 11 starts this year and has a 6.14 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP. Duffy has pitched a total of 58.2 innings this season and has 50 strikeouts with 27 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins have won 19 of Gibson’s last 22 road starts against a team with a losing record and 6 of his last 7 starts against divisional opponents.

Kansas City

The Royals are just 2-9 in their last 11 against a losing team and 2-15 in their last 17 home games against a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

The Royals have struggled with poor teams this year, and really most teams. Duffy hasn’t put up good numbers this year either. Gibson has been pretty competitive this season, but really has his best stuff against AL Central opponents. I think Gibson has another strong start to lead the Twins to the victory.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -135
