Twins hard to figure out

The Twins were surprisingly swept at Kansas City this past weekend, but then followed it up with a 3-game sweep of the Blue Jays in Toronto. Minnesota is 47-53 overall and 18-31 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.59 runs per game this year while allowing 4.71 per contest.

Kyle Gibson gets the start for the Twins on Thursday. He comes into the night with a 4-7 record through 20 starts. Gibson has a 3.57 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 121 innings of work this year. He also has 119 strikeouts with 48 walks.

Red Sox edged by Baltimore

The Red Sox are coming off a 7-6 loss at Baltimore on Tuesday, having Wednesday’s game get PPD by weather. The Sox have still won five of their last seven. Boston is now 71-32 overall and 34-13 at home. Boston is putting up 5.35 runs per game this year while allowing 3.72 per contest.

Brian Johnson makes the start for the Red Sox tonight. He has started five games this season and has appeared in 26 games total. Johnson is 1-3 on the mound with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. He has pitched 54.1 innings this year and has 47 strikeouts with 17 walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Twins are surprisingly 13-3 in their last 16 games against AL East opponents, but they are just 8-20 in their last 28 road games.


The Red Sox have won nine of Johnson’s last 10 starts and they have also won six of their last seven against the AL Central.


Gibson has been pretty competitive on the mound this year for the Twins, but I don’t think he and Minnesota have enough to beat the Red Sox. Boston has an interesting starter today, but he has limited damage on the mound and he has a very strong batting order to support him.


The Pick: Boston Red Sox -160
