MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are just 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 1-4 in their last five against a right-handed starter. They are also 2-5 in Gibson’s last seven starts.

Chicago

The White Sox are just 3-9 in their last 12 games following a win and 8-17 in Shields’ last 25 starts against a losing team.

Prediction:

Gibson has had one of his better seasons in some time this year, but run support hasn’t been something that has been common for him. I think that changes today. Shields hasn’t been very good in most of his starts this year and struggles to get swings and misses. I look for Minnesota to see a scoring surge today to give Gibson the help he needs for a victory.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -145
