Colon Has Found the Fountain of Youth in Minny

The Cleveland Indians own a healthy lead over the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central, but the Twinkies will attempt to cut into the deficit when the rivals square off on the diamond today. Sportsbooks opened the Twins as +156 home underdogs with a total of 9.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Indians’ last five games against the Twins.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Twins’ last five games against their division.
  • The Twins are 5-1 SU in their last six games against right-handed starting pitchers.

Danny Salazar and Bartolo Colon are expected to get the start for the Tribe and Twins, respectively. Salazar (4-5, 4.15 ERA) has allowed only four runs combined in his last four starts but sports a 1-0 record for his troubles. The hurler gave up one run in six innings in a triumph at Minnesota on April 17.

Colon (4-9, 6.77) suffered the loss in his season debut with the Twins on July 18 but is unbeaten in four outings since then. The 44-year-old pitched seven scoreless innings of five-hit ball at Milwaukee in his last time out.

Cleveland hasn’t had any issues producing in the Twin Cities of late. In the Indians’ last eight trips to Target Field, they’re a perfect 8-0 SU and ATS.
