Twins bounce back
The Twins bounced back from a weekend sweep at Kansas City by beating the Blue Jays on the road on Monday, 8-3. Minnesota is 45-53 overall and 16-31 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.51 runs per game while allowing 4.74 per contest.
Jose Berrios is getting the start for the Twins tonight. He has started 20 games this season and has a 9-7 record with a 3.68 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Berrios has logged 127 strikeouts and 29 walks over 127.1 innings this year.
Blue Jays slip up
The Jays surprisingly lost at home to the Twins on Monday to snap their three-game win streak out of the break. Toronto is now 46-53 on the season and 27-26 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.47 runs per contest this year while allowing 4.92 per contest.
Ryan Borucki will be starting for the Blue Jays tonight. He has started four games this season and has an 0-1 record with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP. Borucki has 21 strikeouts and 10 walks through 23.0 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are just 8-20 in Berrios’ last 28 road starts despite his strong numbers this year. Minnesota is also just 6-20 in its last 26 road games.
The Blue Jays are 15-7 in their last 22 home games and they have won four straight games against a right-handed starter.
Berrios has been Minnesota’s best starter, but he has been in a bit of a funk the last few weeks. He has given up 16 runs over his last 24.1 innings. His walk numbers have been picking up as well, which hasn’t been the case prior. I just have a hard time trusting Minnesota all around. I know they won Monday, but they aren’t a good road team and the Twins have a capable pitcher on the mound.
The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays +100
