Twins swept by KC
The Twins are coming off getting swept by the lowly Royals in Kansas City this weekend. Minnesota is 44-53 overall and 15-31 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.47 runs per game while allowing 4.76 per contest.
Adalberto Mejia is getting the start for the Twins this evening. He is making just his second start of the year. His first start came back on June 30 where he gave up four runs over four innings on six hits, three walks and one strikeout.
Blue Jays hot out the break
The Blue Jays had a good start for the second half of the season by sweeping the Orioles at home this weekend. Toronto is now 46-52 on the season and 27-25 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.49 runs per contest this year while allowing 4.89 per contest.
Toronto is giving the ball to Luis Santos this evening. He is making his first start this season but he has appeared in five games in relief. Santos has a 7.88 ERA with a 1.88 WHIP. He has pitched 8.0 innings and has allowed seven runs with four walks and nine strikeouts.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins have won seven of their last eight against AL East opponents but they are just 6-20 in their last 26 road games.
The Blue Jays have won six of their last seven series openers. They also have won seven of their last 10 on Monday.
This pitching matchup is quite interesting. Neither man has logged many innings and both have struggled in their limited play. Minnesota just lost three straight at Kansas City and now faces a better Toronto team that has a little momentum going after a sweep of the Orioles. I will stick with the home team to win another game.
The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -125
