Twins take opener
The Twins have won two straight following their 6-4 victory in Tuesday’s series opener against the Tigers. Minnesota is 29-34 overall and 12-17 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.30 runs per game this season while allowing 4.44 per contest.
Jose Berrios is on the mound for the Twins this evening. He has a 7-5 record through 13 starts with a 3.66 ERA and 0.92 WHIP. Berrios has pitched 83.2 innings and has 84 strikeouts with 14 walks.
Tigers lose Cabrera
Aside from the 6-4 loss to the Twins on Tuesday, the Tigers also lost Miguel Cabrera for the rest of the season due to a ruptured bicep tendon. Detroit is now 31-37 overall and 21-17 at home. The Tigers are putting up 4.16 runs per game this season while allowing 4.65 per contest.
Matthew Boyd gets the start for the Tigers on Wednesday night. He has pitched in 12 games this season and has a 4-4 record with a 3.20 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Boyd has pitched a total of 70.1 innings and has 54 strikeouts with 26 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins have won Berrios’ last seven starts against division opponents and six of his last seven starts against a losing team.
The Tigers have won five of Boyd’s last six starts overall and his last five home starts. However, they are just 1-11 in his last 12 division starts.
Boyd has been competitive on the mound for the Tigers, but the loss of Cabrera weakens an already weak lineup for Detroit. Berrios has been the ace of the Twins this season and his low WHIP should allow him to have a strong outing against Detroit. I can’t see the Tigers being able to put up the offense to win this game.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -165
