How They Match Up:
Offensively, the game matches up Seattle's No. 14 ranked American League offense (3.9 runs per game) against a Twins defense and pitching staff that sits at No. 14 in the American League at 5.2 runs allowed per game.

Last time out for Minnesota, they were a 5-1 loser as they battled the Tigers at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Tigers at -145 were rewarded, while the 6 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors. The Twins were saddled with a loss last time out in Cole De Vries' start, as they lost 5-1 against Detroit on Wednesday at Target Field.

Bettors on Seattle at -130 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (1) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
