MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 5-1 in their last six Thursday games. Minnesota is 5-0 in the last five Odorizzi road starts. 

Kansas City

The Royals are 1-5 in the last six meetings. Kansas City is 41-20 in the last 61 home meetings.

Prediction:

All Kansas City seems to have going for it is home-field advantage. Odorizzi is a far superior pitcher to Sparkman, the Twins have a deep bullpen and their offense has been clicking all season. You can take your chances on the Royals, but I'm going with the favorites tonight.
