Is the OVER Worth a Look in Twins-Indians?

Jake Odorizzi #12 of the Minnesota Twins walks back up on the mound after giving up a grand slam home run to Chris Herrmann #5 of the Oakland Athletics trotting around the bases in the bottom of the fourth innin of a Major League Baseball game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on July 2, 2019 in Oakland, California.

The Minnesota Twins have a 5 1/2-game lead over the Cleveland Indians in the American League Central race and will be looking to add some breathing room when the rivals collide in Ohio on Saturday.

Twins vs Indians Game Center

Standout Stats

  • Sportsbooks opened the Twins as +130 road underdogs with a total of 9.
  • Jake Odorizzi will start for the Twins. Odorizzi (10-4, 3.15 ERA) missed his chance to pitch in the All-Star Game due to a blister on his middle finger but will be ready for this one. The hurler is winless in his last three appearances while allowing 13 runs (12 earned) on 16 hits across 12 1/3 innings and has given up six home runs in his last four outings.
  • Trevor Bauer (8-6, 3.61) is unbeaten in his last six starts after allowing only one run on four hits over seven innings in a win on July 7 over Cincinnati. The 28-year-old has 149 strikeouts across 132 innings this season, including 27 in the previous three outings.
  • Minnesota’s Miguel Sano has a 10-game hitting streak (13-for-34, four home runs) and teammate Mitch Garver homered Friday to improve to 7-for-19 with two blasts and four RBI in his last four games.
  • The Indians saw their season-high six-game winning streak come to an end on Friday thanks to an implosion from the bullpen. After losing consecutive 13-0 matchups vs the lowly Baltimore Orioles last month, the Tribe have won 11 of 15 contests.
  • All-star Carlos Santana homered Friday and has reached base in 30 straight games for Cleveland and teammate Roberto Perez is 8-for-16 with a pair of homers and six RBI in his last four tilts.

My Best Bet for Twins-Indians

OVER 9 runs

Odorizzi hasn’t been his usual self of late, and that’s lead to big profits for OVER bettors. The OVER is 7-2 in Odorizzi’s last nine road starts, and the OVER is 4-1-1 in his last six starts overall.

I think another high-scoring affair is in store when these teams meet on the diamond tonight, so take the OVER.
