MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees are 23-10 in their last 33 Tuesday games. New York is 7-2 in the last nine German road starts.
The Twins are 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games. Minnesota is 4-1 in the last five Gibson starts.
Gibson had a rough patch where his mechanics were off, but looked a little better in his last start. German has been awesome all season when healthy. After a scoring fest last night, I think both pitchers settle in and do a good enough job today to keep the score low. While I lean towards New York if I were to pick a side, I'm instead taking a look at the under as the bats should cool down in this one.
