Gallen sharp again

MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 4-1 in their last five games versus a right-handed starter. Minnesota is 7-3 in the last 10 Berrios road starts.
The Marlins are 1-4 in their last five Wednesday games. Miami is 1-5 in the last six Alcantara home starts.
Berrios and Alcantara were both All-Stars this month, but Berrios has had a much better campaign for the stronger ballclub. Alcantara made it just so the Marlins could have their representative. While Miami has been competitive at home lately, Berrios should be able to shut down a lineup that didn't do much against Odorizzi and the bullpen yesterday. Minnesota is in a battle to stay atop the AL Central and wins like this are necessary as we enter the last two months of the regular season.
