Are the Twins Actually A Team To Bet?

Sure, the Minnesota Twins are dead last in the AL Central and almost 30 games under .500, but they have actually been a great runline bet recently. The Twins are 6-1 against the runline in their past seven games with only one loss of more than one run in that span. Minnesota closes up a three-game set with the Texas Rangers Sunday.
