Online MLB Betting Odds:
The Twins march into this evening’s contest sporting a 15-17 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL Central. Currently 1-game behind the division leading Cleveland Indians, Minnesota doesn’t need much to take the AL Central. Moreover, the Indians’ recent struggles are opening the door for the Twins to come in and take the division. Specifically, Cleveland is 1-4 in their last 5. To help capitalize on the situation, the Twins will be sending Jose Berrios to the mound this evening. Berrios is a right-handed pitcher with a 3-3 record, a 3.98 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Eduardo Escobar (7 HR, 20 RBI, .313 BA), Eddie Rosario (7 HR, 25 RBI, .291 BA), and Max Kepler (4 HR, 13 RBI, .274 BA).
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels fly into this Thursday night pairing with a 22-14 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL West. On top of that, it places them ½ a game behind the Houston Astros. In their last 8 matchups, Los Angeles has posted a 6-2 record. Clearly the team is coming into this matchup with a bit of momentum. And since the Astros won’t be taking to the diamond this evening, the Angels can take the lead in the division with a win over the Twins. To get the job done, the Angels will be sending Garrett Richards to the mound. Richards is 4-1 on the season with a 3.93 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Andrelton Simmons (3 HR, 22 RBI, .339 BA), Mike Trout (12 HR, 25 RBI, .331 BA), and Justin Upton (8 HR, 25 RBI, .257 BA).
