Twins Look To Clinch Playoff Berth In Cleveland

The Minnesota Twins are on the verge of making the postseason for the first time since 2010. All the Twins need to do is pick up a victory against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday, which may not be easy considering the Tribe have won seven of their past eight.

Shark Bites
  • Eddie Rosario is slashing .438/.438/.813 in his career vs Josh Tomlin.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Twins’ last 8 games against the Indians.
  • The Twins are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games as underdog.

The Twins will turn to Big Sexy, Bartolo Colon, who has put up some pretty unattractive numbers lately. The 44-year-old has a 13.09 ERA in his past three starts, failing to make it out of the fourth inning twice in that span. Colon has faced the Indians once since being picked up by the team, allowing seven hits and three runs in 5.0 innings on August 15.

The Indians will be looking for continued stellar play out of starter Josh Tomlin when he takes the bump in this one. The righty has allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his past six starts while throwing 68 percent of his pitches for strikes. Tomlin surrendered nine hits and four earned runs in his lone start against the Twins since the all-star break.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Minnesota Twins were listed as +178 underdogs on the MLB baseball moneyline at many online sportsbooks, including Bet365. The total was set at 9.5 before betting started earlier on Tuesday over at Bovada.
