Twins in a funk
The Minnesota Twins have lost four straight and six of their last seven coming into today. They dropped a 6-5 decision to the Brewers on Monday. The Twins are 35-46 overall and 15-26 on the road. Minnesota is averaging 4.30 runs per game on offense this year while allowing 4.73 per contest.
Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the Twins this afternoon. He has started 17 games this season and has a 3-5 record with a 4.62 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Over 85.2 innings of work, Odorizzi has 88 strikeouts with 39 walks.
Brewers take opener
The Brewers won their series opener on Monday to snap a brief two-game losing streak. Milwaukee is now 49-35 overall and 25-17 a home. Milwaukee is averaging 4.38 runs per game on offense while allowing 3.81 per contest.
Junior Guerra is starting on the mound for the Brewers today. He has appeared in 15 games this season and has a 4-5 record with a 3.05 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Guerra has pitched 82.2 innings this season and has 80 strikeouts with 31 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins have lost four straight interleague games and six of their last eight against right-handed starters.
The Brewers are 23-11 in their last 34 home games. They also are 12-4 in their last 16 Tuesday games.
The Twins haven’t been able to find the right combination of pitching and hitting as of late and I think that could be an issue again today. Guerra has been pretty strong on the mound for the Brewers and their bullpen is very steady. Odorizzi is capable of good starts, but I don’t trust the Twins’ bullpen to back him up.
The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -145
