Twins' Struggles at Home Continue to Hurt Their Bettors

The Seattle Mariners have quietly become one of the most potent offenses in Major League Baseball and will try to pick up their 13th victory in the last 18 games on Thursday afternoon. Sportsbooks opened the M’s as slight -104 underdogs with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Mariners are 5-2 SU in their last seven games against the Twins.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Mariners' last eight games as underdogs against the Twins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Mariners' last seven games.

Ariel Miranda and Jose Berrios will get the start for the Mariners and Twins, respectively. Miranda (6-2, 3.67 ERA) has won five consecutive starts and allowed nine earned runs over his previous six appearances. The hurler lost his lone career start against the Twinkies last season when he gave up three runs and three hits in four innings of work.

Berrios (5-1, 2.84) has won back-to-back starts while giving up fewer than three runs in four of his six turns in 2017. The 23-year-old is 1-6 with a bloated 7.43 ERA in eight career starts at Target Field, with the lone victory coming this season when he struck out a career-best 11 batters in 7 2/3 scoreless frames vs Colorado.

The Twins simply haven’t been getting the job done at home this season. Minnesota is 1-6 SU in its past seven at Target Field and 13-20 at home on the year compared to a 20-9 road record.
