MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 2-11 in their last 13 Saturday games and 1-5 in their last six division games.

Minnesota

The Twins are 16-5 in their last 21 Saturday games and 35-16 in their last 51 division contests.

Prediction:

The Twins had some unpredictably bad pitching all around on Friday. Today they have a veteran arm in Gibson, who has struggled as of late, but still manages to get wins. Duffy has been pretty consistent throughout the year, giving up a handful of runs in most starts. He is steady, but facing some dangerous bats on the road today. Gibson doesn’t have that same test. KC had a nice night on Friday, but that isn’t the norm for them.

MLB Prediction: Minnesota Twins -225
