Twins Betting Preview

The Twins come into this game with a 10-7 record overall but they really feel like they should be 11-6 right now. It was a couple of bad by Christian Vazquez and some bullpen struggles that led to the loss. The Twins strength has been the pitching that is ranked second in baseball giving up only 2.941 runs per game. The offense hasn’t been good, and they need the offense to be better here. On the mound for the Twins is Joe Ryan who sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 2.84. In his last start against the Yankees he went seven innings giving up three hits and one run. 

Red Sox Betting Preview

The Red Sox comes into this game with a 9-9 record overall and late inning heroics on Tuesday that were the difference. Reese McGuire had a strong game finishing with one hit, one run, and two RBIs. The Red Sox’s offense is averaging 5.33 runs per game which is 6th in the league. The pitching however hasn’t been good enough. On the mound for the Red Sox is Corey Kluber who sits with an 0-3 record and an ERA of 6.92. In his last start against the Tampa Bay he went 4.2 innings giving up four hits and four runs.

Shane’s Free Pick

Joe Ryan has been strong so far this season and he’s going to be lights out again here. The Red Sox’s offense really struggled for most of the game, and they are going ot have some issues scoring again here against Ryan. The Twins might not run up the score, but they will score enough to secure the win. Back the Twins on the money line.
